about

“20 Years on the Wrong Side of the Road”
“Second Skin” è il sesto album dei CUT ed è il disco con cui la storica formazione bolognese festeggia più di venti anni di un percorso musicale che li ha visti attraversare “ere” diverse del suono alternativo e indipendente, sempre “on the wrong side of the road”.
Per questo motivo, nella fase di realizzazione dell’album, i CUT hanno voluto coinvolgere alcuni dei loro più stretti collaboratori e amici, molti dei quali hanno preso parte alla fase di costruzione dei brani, fornendo un contributo essenziale alla varietà di atmosfere e suggestioni che caratterizzano “Second Skin”.
“Second Skin”
Il titolo ha un doppio valore evocativo:
può essere letto come una metafora del vissuto della band, oramai divenuta una seconda pelle per i propri membri, oppure attraverso le tematiche affrontate nei testi quali l’ossessività e la dipendenza affettiva che rendono difficoltoso l'affrancarsi da stati d’animo legati a rapporti interpersonali passati.
Un'ossessione che ti avvolge come una “seconda pelle”, una prigione, spesso invisibile agli altri, dalla quale non ci si riesce a liberare.

Track Name: Shot Dead
I've been shot dead
running on a stream of lead
I've been down and out
for a long time baby
I know it's gonna make you glad

I've been shot dead
baby what d’you make of that?
you've made me twist and crawl 
at your feet now lady
I know it doesn't make you sad 
alright now!

I've been bad, so bad
I've been bad, so bad

shot dead
running on a stream of lead
my pain won't reach you
don't worry honey
'cause pretty soon I'll be dead
alright now!
Track Name: You Killed Me First
you killed me first
so don't complain
if I'm returning the gift now
you killed me first
you look the best
but you act the worst

hollow inside
you know I'm hollow inside
hollow inside
you know I'm hollow inside

'cause you
you killed me first
and I won't hit back
I won't resist no
I can only sit down and stare at my wrist now
you, you killed me first
you came to me just like a ghost and
you, you killed me first
you still haunt these woods
hiding in the mist

you haunt me, you shake me
I can't let you in 'cause I know you'd break me
you haunt me, you shake me
I can't let you in 'cause I know you'd take me

hollow inside
you know I'm hollow inside
hollow inside
you know I'm hollow inside
Track Name: Too Late
fool's gold
just a shade of brown
I'm born
my face to the ground
drive blind
please don't bring me down
you're gone 
but you still hang around

you wanna go somewhere
you want a souvenir
you want a slice of life
but you can’t find it here
you wanna slip away
you wanna disappear
you wanna live your life
like it’s a battlefield

it’s too late
you’ll die in here
too late
you’ll die in here

white lies 
I wonder where you've been
nighttime, the only way to live
bells chime
ready to begin
your day 
looking bright and clean

d’you want the perfect drug
or just a sip of beer?
you want the sweetest wine
don’t wanna shed a tear
you wanna slip away
you wanna disappear
you wanna live your life
like it’s a battlefield

it’s too late
you’ll die in here!
too late,
you’ll die in here!

die!

in here

fool's gold
just a shade of brown
I'm born
my face to the ground
drive blind
you can't bring me down
you're gone 
but you still hang around
Track Name: Parasite
I've been going through hell too long
you’ve been playing with me now you're gone
still you wanna know how I am
will you ever understand?
alright

you sucked me dry
you parasite
you sucked me dry

leaving now for a brand new shore
send me greetings from abroad
you’re as beautiful as I can recall
will I ever resist your call?

you sucked me dry
no hope in sight
parasite
you sucked me dry
you parasite

no one ever will take your place
will forever believe your face
lose myself into your eyes
but don't fuck with me parasite!

don't fuck with me parasite!
don't fuck with me parasite!
don't fuck with me parasite!
Track Name: Automatic Heart (Tacoma Time Travel)
hey, I wonder how you feel
your soul is made of steel
automatic heart
break, my will is not too strong
I know you think it's wrong

here by mistake
gone by mistake
here by mistake
gone by mistake
how could I be wrong?
here by mistake
gone by mistake
here by mistake
gone by mistake
how could I be wrong?
here by mistake
gone by mistake
here by mistake
gone by mistake
how could I be wrong?

(psycho)
you got love you travelled
you got love you travelled
(psycho)

hey, nothing left to take
when shivers turn to shakes
I guess you took it all

here by mistake
gone by mistake
here by mistake
gone by mistake
how could I be wrong?
Track Name: Take It Back To The Start
I don't mind 
 if the sky is falling 
 I don't care 
 if it's breaking apart 
 I won't be there 
 when you're feeling lonely 
 'cause all I care for 
 is my own kind 
 well you can say I'm blind 

 if you can't find 
 what you really wanted 
 if you can't get it 
 and you don't know who you are 
 you could have stayed here 
 to make it all new 
 but now you're gone 
 and I'm falling apart 
 let's take it back to the start 
 'cause now we're falling apart 

 I don't mind 
 if the sky is falling 
 I don't care 
 if it's breaking apart 
 and I won't be there 
 when you're feeling lonely 
 you could have stayed here 
 to take it back to the start 
 but now we're falling apart 
 let's take it back, take it back
Track Name: Second Skin
burning my candle
your light won’t shine in
can’t see through the darkness
I feel like giving in
craving your touch
don’t know where you’ve been
crawling upon me
just like a second skin
a second skin
my second skin

nothing’s happening
you’re not there to be seen
why won’t you save me
from my losing scheme
looking for reasons
for what I’ve been in
searching for life signs
inside my second skin
a second skin
my second skin
just like a second skin
my second skin
don’t know when to stop
don’t know where to begin
I feel like giving in
Track Name: Holy War
your little holy war
a private holy war
behind your bedroom door

you fail, you try
your hope denied

you've been fighting
on your own
you've been fighting 
holy war

your little holy war
a private holy war

you've been fighting
on your own 
you've been fighting 
all alone

you cheat, you lie
you fight, you die

you've been fighting on your own 
you've been fighting all alone

you've been fighting on your own
you've been fighting 
it's your own 
holy war!
Track Name: The One Who Waits
we’ve been forsaking our fate
our time has come just too late
I’m the one who waits
wait for you to come back
Long gone but still I’m yearning
false hope for your returning
I’m the one who waits
wait for you to come back
I’m the one who waits
in a wasteland
wait for you to come back
come back!
Track Name: Paralysed
I'm paralysed 
I just can't help the way I feel
I can only say dumb things 
every time you are near
it's a condition that I can't escape at all
I'm trying to stand up
but all I do is fall
all I do is fall

I'm hypnotized
I can't control the things I do
I know I feel this way
just because of you
you roll your eyes
I don't know just what to say
I came to hate myself 
just like I hate this place
all I do is fall

They tell me what they want
tell me what they want
I do a little bit of this a little bit of that
I’m paralysed
can't cope this time 
It’s gonna break me
I just can’t shake it

I’m paralysed
just hypnotized

I'm hypnotized
I can't control the things I do
I know I feel this way
just because of you
you keep your distance 
I don't know just what to say
I can't seem to have it any other way

They tell me what they want
tell me what they want
I do a little bit of this a little bit of that
I'm paralyzed
I can’t disguise
the way you break me
I just won’t make it
I’m paralyzed 

it keeps dragging me away 
all the time when I wanna stay
Track Name: Catch My Fall
our love got tired
and now it smells like a burning tyre
your childlike smile
through my skin like a frozen knife
what you require
it can’t be reached unless you cut your wires
you call it friendly fire
but I know and I won’t be lying
and now
how can I trick my fate?
who’s gonna catch my fall?
I’m down 
I know it’s much too late
I’ll never meet you again

I know in time
you’re gonna look for what you left behind
the deaf lead the blind
I don’t think it’s gonna work out fine
come rain or shine 
I’ll disappear and you won’t be crying
you met your partner in crime
and you get on like a house on fire
and now
how can I trick my fate?
who’s gonna catch my fall?
I’m down 
I know it’s much too late
I’ll never meet you again
I’ll never see you again
Track Name: Crash And Burn
what can I say to save my life?
I crash and burn night after night
what can I do to kill the blues?
I’ve ripped and torn every sign of you
will I no longer feel regret?
I wish someone could answer that
time has never been a cure
everything just got obscure
ain’t it cool to feel no shame
for things you’ve done again and again?
nobody said I’m always right
I wonder how you sleep at night
guess you’re doing just alright
someone else has paid the price
it’s pain
pain!
what can I say to save my life?
I crash and burn night after night
what can I do to kill the blues?
I’ve ripped and torn every sign of you
nobody said I’m always right
I wonder how you sleep at night
guess you’re doing just alright
someone else has paid the price
for you!
It’s pain
pain!
