seethruskin lyrics – jawbreaker

you’re undecided
you ride a fence but that fence divides
no side is still a side

a look in your eyes says
i hold myself above you
you can’t see through my skin

hey, don’t think that i ain’t counting
all the things, all the things you do
i’ll hold a flood lamp to you
and burn you in your awful truth

born without a choice of race
held to blame and put in place
see through skin
and look at all that lies within

i know that this can’t cure it
but if it bends and ear then hear it
you, watch what you do
watch what you do

you’ve gotta unlearn it
it’s a sickness that keeps returning
you need open heart

enough of your joking
you’re gonna wind up choking
some words still can kill

hey, what kind of friend would understand a joke
could stand a joke so cruel?
hey, color’s just another number
tattooed with a blunt old tool

born without a choice of race
held to blame and put in place
see through skin
and look at all that lies within

i know that this can’t cure it
but if it bends and ear then hear it
you, watch what you do
watch what you do
