Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Into the source of the squall
I inevitably fall
Toward the wellspring of all agony
Shuffling endlessly
Whether or not it was always going to be this way
It only mattered yesterday

No skin like the skin you woke up in
No skin like the skin you woke up in

Up from the earth and the clay
Melting away
Never lose enough to find my form
Trudge through the storm
Wait in hope
For some as yet undiscovered isotope

No skin like the skin you woke up in
No skin like the skin you woke up in

When at last
The die gets cast
Read the numbers out loud
With your head bowed

Try to find a face to focus on
But the memory's gone
Wherever my former self went
It was an accident
Try to picture him in my mind's eye
Say goodbye

No skin like the skin you woke up in
No skin like the skin you woke up in
