lyrics

my own skin has abandoned me
not a molt; it crawled away
and I really needed it today

my own skin has abandoned me
taken up a brand new name
but I don’t feel ashamed

It left no warning, no pardon in its wake
one night, it just escaped
but I don’t feel betrayed

lucky me,
I have another skin to wear.
it has a lot of friends who care.
but most of all,
it’s not going anywhere

then my mind went out to sea,
drifted out upon a wave,
but I won’t be dismayed

tell ‘em, let them know
if they should walk away,
even you can be replaced,
but it won’t be the same

lucky me,
I have another skin to wear.
it has a lot of friends who care.
but most of all,
it’s not going anywhere

glory be,
that I should have a shell to spare,
so I can face the morning air
envelop me
I’m not going anywhere.
