skin & bone

here i bow to you
in all of my simplicity
this is all i feel
i'm feeling my mortality
now i hope you'll see
how much we can bleed
when all we say is
this is all i need

we're just skin and bone
don't leave me alone
after all i've said
after all i've bled
would you leave me to die
without knowing why
that's all we own
we're just skin and bone
skin and bone

oh my old man's fall
is living down integrity
down and out i feel
i'm feeling open gravity
here again i lie
for fear of the undead
what's to happen next is
better left unsaid

we're just skin and bone
don't leave me alone
after all i've said
after all i've bled
would you leave me to die
without knowing why
that's all we own
we're just skin and bone
skin and bone

here i bow to you
in all of my simplicity
this is all i feel
i'm feeling my mortality
and if i were king
i'd serve my soul in celebration
congratulations
you found your limitations

skin and bone
don't leave me alone
after all i've said
after all i've bled
would you leave me to die
without knowing why
that's all we own
we're just skin and bone
skin and bone
don't leave me alone
after all i've said
after all i've bled
would you leave me to die
without knowing why
that's all we own
we're just skin and bone
skin and bone
