Inside this tough brown skin.

Inside this tough brown skin
Skin that has been hit, scraped, and touched
Touched by those that hate and those that love
Love that builds materials for the skin only to be broken down again

Again this skin is tough like a shield to hide emotion
Emotions that show weakness
Weakness like a small candlelight in the darkness of oblivion
Oblivion being the one and only thing that attaches me to the world
World detached from its core shifting and shaking until all pieces have been eradicated
Eradication eliminating all evil outside of this 3 Dimensional Cover
Cover, Cover, Cover

Cover bringing the only way for me not to get hurt
Hurt is the way I feel when people treat me as if I have no feelings but...
But Feeling is something little do they know that they have too
To know that others put on a show for all
All not understanding when someone falls
Falling uncontrollably
Uncontrollable fear

Fear of losing love, friends, and family
Family is the only reason I am like this
This is the reason I get hurt all the time
Time simply does not matter when you're stuck in like I said a 3 dimensional Cover

Covering everything in a swirl
Swirl of personality
Personality that only shows when...
When I am outside my tough brown skin
