Skin O' My Teeth Lyrics - Megadeth

Review The Song (8)

I had wrists donning slits
Flowing constantly
My broken body in a wreck
Wrapped around a tree
A crosswalk hit and run
The finish line for me
People clutter in the gutter
Take a look and see

No escaping pain
You belong to me
Clinging on to life
By the skin o' my teeth

My blood flows through the streets
Deluge from the wounds
Empty jars of sleeping pills
On the dresser of my room
My wet brain neighbor cranes
His neck to see
In time, the white lights a train
Bearing down on me


Solo - Marty

I won't feel the hurt
I'm not trash any longer
That which doesn't kill me
Only makes me stronger
I need a ride to the morgue
That's what 911 is for
So, tag my toe and don't forget
Ooh to close the door

Awesome | Reviewer: Jay18 | 9/29/13

NO! this song is not about killing yourself its actually, just kinda about all the bad an wrecked things there are in life, and about how he is still hangin' on, and in the last verse it pretty much states that bad shit happens and that will be ok in the end, and if your closed mind would see that, you wouldnt be a douche about this song... I know this shit is far to old, and the guy that said "this song is about killing yourself", probably wont ever get my message.

This song IS about suicide, with lines such as "I had wrists donning slits" and "empty bottles of sleeping pills", but I could see how someone could it with something else. The debate is confirmed, however, with Dave Mustain's announcement at a Megadeth concert, where he stated it was about his own suicidal tendencies (Ironically, he made a mistake, and they were supposed to play A Tout le Monde, not Skin o my Teeth next)

great song | Reviewer: Me | 12/3/10

I love Megadeth and I think this song is great. I don't have any problem with it's lyrics even if they are about suicide. That doesn't mean that if you get to a point where you don't want to live any more it's ok to do so.
However, it's you, Ethan Becker, the one who sucks not the song.
Megadeth rules.

*facepalm* | Reviewer: Daniel | 5/23/10

ethan becker, you fail.

This song kicks ass! and it IS about trying to kill yourself (Well Dave trying to kill himself but never getting the job done).
In fact this song was how mtv banned A tout le monde,
megadeth were playing live and he introduced the next song as "This song is about how many times ive tried to kill myself but never having the guts to get the job done". But he was then told they were playing a tout le monde first :P mtv banned it on the spot.

dear lord, your bad... | Reviewer: Gabriel | 6/16/09

this song IS about suicide, retard. Dave Mustaine said it himself. its about how many times he tried, but never got the job done. and Ethan Becker, you got a problem with suicide?! well, i cant blame you there, but your still a douche for saying Megadeth is bad.

wow... ur both stupid. | Reviewer: Fenyx | 8/21/08

its not truly about killing urself, its about being drugged and dieing in a car crash. it could be about killing urself if thats the way u want to veiw it, but either way Ethan Becker ur a fucking douche.

If you don't want to review properly, fuck you | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/11/08

The guy above is a total douche bag, this song is totally kick ass and I bet it took major guts for Mustaine to write a song about the subject. The lyrics are a little off in places, but manly good job.
