Skin and bone,
my prison of alone
hidden skindeep
I wait
I cannot change, the me inside
outside I look like you
but I am not

If I could turn into myself would you love me?
If I am as beautiful outside as I am inside, would you love me?

outside I am a man
inside I am a beast
but my soul is still me
beautiful and loyal
but if I throw away the man
would you love the beast?

If I could turn into myself would you love me?
If I am as beautiful outside as I am inside, would you love me?

Some of you can climb out of a closet
but I need to climb out of my skin
grow out my fur, be free as a king
roar in my jungle
run through the hills
howl at the moon
and be me

If I could turn into myself would you love me?
If I am as beautiful outside as I am inside, would you love me?

I am a transhuman soul
otherkin
I am beautiful
I am amazing
but…

If I could turn into myself would you love me?
If I am as beautiful outside as I am inside, would you love me?
