about

This song was originally a lot longer, with an extra verse and a twist in the final chorus. Fortunately a certain voice beside me told me to edit the words down, and make the song more straight and to the point... An obvious opener, perhaps an appropriate introduction. Henry certainly added a quirky nature to it, and Odd's drunken harmonica also does it's bit. Listen closely, and you can hear one of Martin Bisi's signature embellishments in this one...

lyrics

SHEDDING SKIN
(lyrics by Mark Steiner)

This is no story, nor a memory
I'm just so tired of the same
Old shit reminds me of misery
Mistakes which brought to this place

I’m not an angel who lost his wings
I’m just a man who wants to shed his skin

Well I’ve witnessed many things
Wonders and horrors too
I’ve lived and wandered like a ghost
Then I finally hit the wall
With women and alcohol
The things which I adore the most

I’m not a daemon who has paid for his sins
I’m just a man who wants to shed his skin

This is no story, nor a memory
I'm just so tired of the same

This ex-New Yorker is a wandering scoundrel who one might find hanging out in the shadowy corners of a pub at closing time. A international musical vagrant who might walk the streets with Stuart Staples, Nick Cave, and Rowland S. Howard... ... more
