BackgroundEdit

Hey everyone, Ceph here! This one is a song from my album released last year. I decided to get a PV made for it and release it as a single! Good timing too, because it's Gumi's birthday tomorrow!
 
— Cepheid

"Crocodile Skin" is an original song by Cepheid featuring GUMI. It is about the drug desomorphine (also known as krokodil) and its physical effects. It was originally released on their album Lost. Forgotten. Shattered. back in August 7, 2015, but was then uploaded with a PV to YouTube and Niconico nearly a year later for GUMI's birthday.

LyricsEdit

The craving slowly starts again
Crawling up my skin
I want the blissful feeling of
Intoxication

I wander the streets searching for
Justification
An excuse escapes my pale lips
Addiction

Lying never felt so
Fulfilling, I think that
Tomorrow will be a new day
To start fresh

Repeat what's been done
A hundred times again
The sensation subsides
But slowly crawls back up my skin

The poison quickly floods my veins
Contamination
A stream of colours fill my head
Hallucinations

I collapse on the cold, hard, floor
Deprivation
The damage takes a hold of me
Infliction

Lying never felt so
Fulfilling, I think that
Tomorrow will be a new day
To start fresh

Repeat what's been done
A hundred times again
The sensation subsides
But slowly crawls back up my skin

The craving slowly starts again
Crawling up my skin
I want the blissful feeling of
Purification

I touch the leather surface of
My crocodile skin
I want a way to stop the pain
Depression

Lying never felt so
Displeasing, I think that
Tomorrow will be a new day
To start fresh

Undo what's been done
A hundred times again
The sensation subsides
And never crawls back up my skin

Ah
