skin lyrics – icehouse

the masquerader in the mirror
appears to be a total stranger to me
he slips a film of glow through a glove on his hand
and puts my features where his face ought to be
young flesh, young frame
slow pulse, no pain

the face he fits is unmistakably mine
without a trace he leaves the scene of the crime
the story always reads exactly the same
i need my live protection all the time
young flesh, young frame
slow pulse, no pain

chorus
inside my fit on skin
sometimes i wonder just where to begin
i need action, action, action, action
inside my fit on skin
i make a novel of everything
it’s like fiction, fiction, fiction, fiction
inside my fit on skin
another side of my twin

the face he fits is unmistakably mine
without a trace he leaves the scene of the crime
the story always reads exactly the same
i need my live protection all the time
young flesh, young frame
slow pulse, no pain

chorus
