Influential Song

I have a long list of favourite songs. I love listening to music. Not a day goes by I don’t listen to it. I have it as background music, as motivation or inspiration or as a way to calm down/relax.

One of the influential songs of mine that I like is Skin by SIXX:A.M from their This Is Gonna Hurt, the soundtrack for the book of the same name by Nikki Sixx (you can listen to the song here). The lyrics are about looking past scars (whether they are physical, mental or emotional ones caused by burns, depression, anxiety, violence, trauma, abuse, PTSD, etc.) and looking at the person underneath the scars.

Paint yourself a picture
Of what you wish you looked like
Maybe then they just might
Feel an ounce of your pain

Come into focus
Step out of the shadows
It’s a losing battle
There’s no need to be ashamed

‘Cause they don’t even know you
All they see is scars
They don’t see the angel
Living in your heart

Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you’ve got
That you are not your skin

I just love the lyrics and what they mean. SIXX:A.M. have amazing songs and Nikki Sixx just knows how to create the right lyrics to express the inner darkest thoughts of people. Nikki Sixx is an inspiration in his honesty and his exploration of the darkest aspects of people’s inner thoughts and because he, too, strives to be a better person.
