Thick Skin

Broke the spines of flesh tomes like sticks
As thick as thieves they got their tricks

Spinning a web until you/re caught
The one route out is only bought

She sold my soul so I would stay
Ain/t so easy the better way

Quick to start but slow to begin
It/s hard to move restricted skin



nothing/s ever good enough
for you

people change to sycophants when
with you
somehow the truth still never
rings true
this war we wage upon ourselves
is through

because nothing/s good enough
for you

there/s nothing left for me to give
to you
good to bad you stuck to me
like glue
through the times we were left for dead
& blue

nothing/s ever good enough
for you
