I don't have thick skin

I don't have thick skin
I feel the bite of your words
They strike like a wrought iron whip
My outside is weak
But what counts is within

I don't have thick skin
But your attempt is no use
I don't have thick skin
Cause inside I'm immune

I don't have thick skin
No matter how hard you try
I don't have thick skin
My eyes will always be dry

My shield and plate are broken
But the chains of my mail hold true
And even if you pierced it
It wouldn't be my skin that saved me
But my will that refuses to lose

I don't have thick skin
I'll say it again
For the people
That think they can get to me

Get beat, scratched, and bleed
Cause the blood that gets freed
Is proof that you'll still be alive
