So many people whose skin is too thin
They embrace fire like little children.
And they believe that they’re floating on top of things,
While really drowning in an endless sea of problems.
Ain’t nobody to protect their back
Their train is running on a one-way track.
No way to break, no way to stop
They are heading towards collision.

So many people whose skin is too thin,
They can’t say no, they let it all in.
All the news about the state of the world today,
The agony that’s caused by this wicked game we play.
Their biggest burden is that they care.
About the victims who’s pain they share.
I am you and you are me,
Ego dissolving in confusion.

Your skin is definitely too thin
Don’t you let it all come in.
Your skin is definitely too thin
Don’t you let it all come in.

Sometimes I worry that my skin’s become too thick.
You want my empathy, but I don’t buy your trick.
Have I lost touch with my emotions?
I cant let go, no I got to control them.
Without a shield, I am open wide.
But I’m convinced that my love I must hide.
Keeping it save, keeping it sound
Giving it all up for protection.
