Tough Like Leather

Why can I adapt

Why can I sustain

What makes it possible?

To be able to take the blame

How do they see me?

Is it really true?

Do they really expect

For me to just go through?

It’s gotta be true

I mean, don’t You see?

How they are thoroughly

Pulling me from the seams

But why the surprised look

When I actually tear

What did they expect?

That I was able to just bare?

When You pull away what I am

Start tearing away my emotions

Then expect me to stand

Naked but with no convulsions?

But that’s what I’ll do

That’s who I am

Just use what You took

And see who I am

It’s all in Your hands

It’s all in Your hands.
