One Minute Silence – I wear my skin (Leaping Ahead #76)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #76: 160316

[A song with a good video (2)]

I wear my skin like it’s not a problem
Or is it a problem for you?
My past writes the page I walk on

This is a perfect match of video to song. The lyrics, vocalist’s stoic ‘turning of face to the wind’, the vibrant, ethereal power of the tune, the dark brooding mass as Yap struggles against a suited crowd.

Read want you want into what’s being said here – I’m sure there are many variations. But to me, this is about having a voice and not being afraid to use it. It’s about being proud of who you are as an individual and not giving a toss about what anyone else thinks; it’s what’s inside that really matters, not outward appearance and, when all is said and done, that alone will hold up as the single truth.

Suffice to say, this is a favourite song of mine.
