and lay your clothes down
and take a step back
Now how's that sound?

They don't suit you
Not anymore
No, they don't fit right
They're not for you

You in the nude
You in the nude
They'll see your true face
shining through

So take it off
and take it all off
and show that skin
beneath the soiled cloth

You in the nude
You in the nude
