man in someone else’s skin lyrics – john watts

viewed from a distance
there’s something wrong.
it’s confidence. . it’s just not working.
why is it so ouiet now?
and faced with a made up
parade of dolls
it’s obvious it’s not worth fighting
the candle keeps on burning down.
i’m a man in someone else’s skin.
cautious manoewres.
too much restraint.
the censor won’t be hard to handle
but i am inescapable.
stand by the mirror
survey the view
identify a strange reflection
and watch the image multiply.
i’m the man in someone else’s skin
