Imagine

The internet is forever teaching me things. Like this:

In the 1980s, Tom Morello played in a high school band called Electric Sheep with Adam Jones (Tool).

Shed Your Skin

Yesterday I found myself with a song stuck in my head, just the melody, but I couldn’t immediately place what it was…

Then I sussed out that it was Shed Your Skin by the Indigo Girls, from their (excellent) Shaming Of The Sun album.

But not just the album version… it was the Tom Morello remix I’d heard on an old CMJ New Music magazine CD (1998-07).

Fun!

 

One hundred and fifteen
You are seventeen
Itchy trigger
Venomous
You growing longer
You growing stronger
So shed your skin, baby
Now shed this

Come on over now
Come on over baby
You tell me it’s holy holy
I don’t know what that is, come on over now
Let’s call it the fullness of time
I don’t know what that is, come on over now

Hey holy, console me
Some power, controls me
Remorse it, I force
It can’t free it, so be it

I’m speaking in tongues
Handling you
I got religion now look at it
The days grow longer
As we grow stronger
So shed your skin baby let it rip

Come on over now
Come on over baby
You tell me it’s holy holy
I don’t know what that is, come on over now
Let’s call it the fullness of time
I don’t know what that is, come on over now

Hey holy, console me
Some power, controls me
Remorse it, I force
Don’t free it, just be it
Just be it, just be it

I’ve been lookin’ to find you
But it’s a little too late too soon
And I looking out and far
Spirits are your doom
In you
In you

I got the hangman
I got Milagro
I got the celebration too
The flesh is strong
My spirit’s stronger
So shed your skin
Baby let it through

Come on over now
Come on over baby
You tell me it’s holy holy
I don’t know what that is, come on over now
You wanna call it the fullness of time
I don’t know what that is, come on over now

Hey holy, console me
Some power, controls me
Remorse it, I force
It can’t free it, so be it

Hey holy, console me
Some power, controls me
Come on over baby
