Track Name: Prisoner's Skin
Living in a prisoner's skin
No way out or in
Violence, smiling

Living in a prisoner's skin
I refuse to sing
Play a tiny violin

You and I are fugitive
Dreaming the police
I say there is no law
But manifest belief
She knew we must escape
The people killing trees
She said "if you want to die
don't come with me"
Fingerprints, poetry
Born in the dirt, buried at sea

Cage made of faces
Chained to a name
Skinful of bridges
The river, incinerate
Quiet by the fire
Warm as a grave
Talk to the voices
Remain sane
