about

The live version was recorded with David Andreas, in his living room, on September 2014. Nothing is amplified, it's just the sound of us playing together. You can watch the video of that performance here: youtu.be/NXanpP7VXpo

The EP version was released on the Always Is The Time To Make Everything EP, back when Ocean Leaves was Timothy's solo project.

Track Name: Skin (Live version)
I was slumbering, preoccupied with breathing fire and inhaling stars
Drinking rivers dry and stomping mountaintops
Opened my eyes to find my hair silver and grey
Crows feet and bags beneath my eyes

I have been fast asleep within a hundred thousand layers of my skin

What had become of me? What happened to my days?
I slept them all away and awoke another guy

I have been fast asleep within a hundred thousand layers of my skin

Called it quits more than I'll ever admit
Couldn't finish them; they'd finish me
Drifted down into the deepest waking sleep
With zero percent lucidity

I have been fast asleep within a hundred thousand layers of my skin
