        [false start]

        Putting on a new skin
        looking for a good time
        getting rid of old looks

        Purple, hey, just who..
        silver grey don't be obtuse
        unless you're just an old recluse
        I love you in black

        Look for hangin' on.. green
        chartreuse.. shit..
        I'm sorry.. hey, please start again

        [tape skipped]

        Putting on a new skin
        looking for a good time
        getting rid of old looks
        searching for the new sublime
        Searching for the new sublime

        Cobra blue and cancer brown
        torrential white and juicy mauve
        I just want to get my old skin off
        'cause I love you in black
        'Cause I love you in black

        Putting on a new skin

        Cobra blue and cancer brown
        torrential white and juicy mauve
