in your skin

so the question is:
Are you content in your skin?

Part of this New Year for me
was making sure that was indeed true.
No more wasting time.
Going after what I want out of life.
Get out of my way.

And as the reality of our friend Tommy's death
slithers into the routineness of our daily lives
the words to Lifehouse's song
aptly titled "In Your Skin"
bring me back to thinking about him.

Throw stones, breaking bones
Then wonder why you run for cover
You fight the world from inside

Lay down, playing dead
Turn the pages, just another
Wasted day in your mind

You live to run away
But fear's the hardest act to follow
Let me let you in

Hold on another day
Face the truth, it's hard to swallow
It's time to begin
There's only one life
In your skin

Wake up, take a breath
Remember why you're even breathing
You're still alive

Give in, give it up
You're the only one believing
In all of your lies

You live to run away
But fear's the hardest act to follow
Let me let you in

Hold on another day
Face the truth, it's hard to swallow
It's time to begin
There's only one life
In your skin, in your skin

You live to run away
But fear's the hardest act to follow
Let me let you in

Hold on another day
Face the truth, it's hard to swallow
It's time to begin
There's only one life
In your skin, in your skin



There IS only one life in your skin. 
Are you doing all you can? 
YOU can be gone in an instant.

And man, I want to leave my mark.
