Cold Skin by Seven Lions and Echos

Monstercat has been known to release excellent music. Even if it is not commercial, the quality of the music is known to transcend boundaries. Another one of the perfect music scores I found was the song – Cold Skin. It is composed by Seven Lions with the music group Echos. The lyrics and the tunes are hauntingly beautiful! It can be found on YouTube, iTunes, etc. Support such artists and their outstanding abilities.

“Cold Skin”
Here I am again
Floating through the silence in my cold skin
Our bodies wearing thin
My fears tell me I’ll never win
Our bodies wearing thin
Wearing thin

And there’s darkness here (darkness here)
The whole world I fear (I fear)
And my rumors seem to drown (to drown)
But I won’t let them take me down
I won’t let them take me down
Down, down, down, oh

I won’t let them take me down
(Down, down, down, down, down)
I won’t let them take me down

I’ll rise and I’ll fall again
Fighting off the violence in my cold skin
Our bodies wearing thin
My fears tell me I’ll never win
Our bodies wearing thin
Wearing thin

And there’s darkness here (darkness here)
The whole world I fear (I fear)
And my rumors seem to drown (to drown)
But I won’t let them take me down
I won’t let them take me down
Down, down, down, oh

I won’t let them take me down
(Down, down, down, down, down)
I won’t let them take me down

“Heathens”

All my friends are heathens. Take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don’t make any sudden moves
You don’t know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens. Take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don’t make any sudden moves
You don’t know the half of the abuse

Welcome to the room of people
Who have rooms of people that they loved one day
Docked away
Just because we check the guns at the door
Doesn’t mean our brains will change from hand grenades

You’ll never know the psychopath sitting next to you
You’ll never know the murderer sitting next to you
You’ll think, “How’d I get here, sitting next to you?”
But after all I’ve said
Please don’t forget

All my friends are heathens. Take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don’t make any sudden moves
You don’t know the half of the abuse

We don’t deal with outsiders very well
They say newcomers have a certain smell
You have trust issues, not to mention
They say they can smell your intentions

You’ll never know the freakshow sitting next to you
You’ll have some weird people sitting next to you
You’ll think, “How’d I get here, sitting next to you?”
But after all I’ve said
Please don’t forget
(Watch it, watch it)

All my friends are heathens. Take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don’t make any sudden moves
You don’t know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens. Take it slow
(Watch it)
Wait for them to ask you who you know
(Watch it)
Please, all my friends are heathens. Take it slow
(Watch it)
Wait for them to ask you who you know

Why’d you come? You knew you should have stayed
(It’s blasphemy)
I tried to warn you just to stay away
(Away)
And now they’re outside ready to bust
(To bust)
It looks like you might be one of us
