This is someone else's story, someone that I never knew
This is someone else's body, am I getting through to you?
If you peel away the armor, is something underneath?
If you look below for hidden treasure, underneath another layer
Are you hiding underneath the skin?

If you peel away the skin is there anybody there
If you peel away the skin is there anybody there
If you peel away the armor is it too late to begin
Is there anybody hiding if you peel away the skin

Now a spark has passed between us now
A momentary recognition
Something lost and something gained
And something shared that feels strange
Something cold that will not go away

There's a heart as cold as ice, in a vault that's made of stone
Over years the walls got higher, over years the walls have grown
Is there anybody in there, in this self inflicted tomb?
If you peel away the layers, is there someone in this room?
If you peel away the skin, if you peel away the skin

This is someone else's story, someone that I never knew
This is someone else's body, am I getting through to you?
If you peel away the layers, is there anybody there?
If you peel away the armor, is something underneath?
If you look below for hidden treasure, underneath another layer
Are you hiding underneath the skin?

If you peel away the skin is there anybody there
If you peel away the skin is there anybody there
If you peel away the skin is there anybody there
If you peel away the skin is there anybody there

If you peel away the skin is there anybody there
If you peel away the skin is there anybody there
If you peel away the skin is there anybody there
If you peel away the skin
