Paint It Black

We try to decipher the truth from the lie. 
There were bolder lines in those analog times.

Station after station, a catalog of capitulations. 
“Abort mission”? This is no fucking solution. 
Digging tunnels under Babylon is not sufficient.

And I think I know what you’re wishing, 
so I’m renewing my vows: 
No more giving up, no more giving in.

No more shame for what’s underneath my skin. 
No more nostalgia for the face I wore when I was young. 
No more violence with my eyes, 
no more violence with my tongue.

You want to talk about skin?
Let’s talk about skin.
