You need rhino skin
If you're gonna begin
To walk
Through this world

You need elephant balls
If you don't want to crawl
On your hands
Through this world

Oh my love, if I reveal
Every secret I've concealed
How many thoughts would you steal?
How much of my pain would you feel?

You need eagles' wings
To get over things
That make no sense
In this world

You need rhino skin
If you're gonna pretend
You're not hurt
By this world

If you listen long enough
You can hear my skin grow tough
Love is painful to the touch
Must be made of stronger stuff

You need rhino skin
To get to the end
Of the maze
Through this world

You need rhino skin
Or you're gonna give in
To the needles and pins
Arrows of sin
Evils of men
You need rhino skin
