My New Skin

It's in this moment that I realized what I asked for has come to me, and all the things I've dreamed of in the end. That's when I had a premonition that the things that used to phaze me could never rule my consciousness again. So I keep my eyes ahead and focus on the things before me, and single out the path I want to take. All the haters talk a lot of trash, well that always seems to bore me. The final score reflects that in the end.

Just one pebble could lock my wheels up. Just one crack could make me break my back. I'm bombing down this hill and I don't give a damn if I make it.

In my new skin, I found a second chance.

In everyday you take a chance so that you notice what you're made of, and when you miss you pay for in the flesh. So that's when you take a peace of mind, all eyes are focused on you. You come to realize this is just a test.
