The War on Drugs – Old Skin Lyrics

The War on Drugs Old Skin Lyrics

I was born in a pyramid by an old interstate
Been down at the yard, working my whole life
To follow my father’s dream then watch it fade away
Wrapped in our old tired skin peeling away

All the flowers lately in our window lay in disarray
The shadows are scattered like rings of gold
And I’m watching the warm lights fade away
God I am in love with leaving
Like a fading dream
Call out in the darkest moments of our love
For the rest of my days, why let it linger?
Come along we’re the same
Let’s suffer through the change

Oh my God, whеre do I belong?
Can I make it day to day?
I was all alonе at the starting line
When I watched you slip away

Now I’m on the run baby, and I don’t know why
But the fear it gets too much to take
Doesn’t matter just how hard you try
When you feel so far away
I’m talkin’ of the old time
Feeling dead this way
Tired of the old life
Feeling dead this way

When you’re lost and you’re running
But the roads have changed
And the forces surround you
But you lost control
And you think that nobody’s walking by your side
When you’re lost in some valley
Runnin’ far behind
Yeah, you don’t need nobody, yeah

Well there’s a price for everything
They’ll try to kill you from the start
So take control of anything that tries to pull us all apart
I ain’t sure of nothing, babe
Till I can feel it in my heart
So I keep moving on
Yeah, keep holding on, mm
Yeah
