"Second Skin" is a song by Dying Fetus featured in the Season Twenty-Three episode, "Band in China".


At Tegridy Farms, Stan and his new band, Crimson Dawn, continue working on songs about living on a farm in the country. They eventually stop their session when a record producer hears their music and offers them a chance to make a biopic.


Looking for the perfect specimen
Still pure,
Acknowledged sickness concealed,
Ascertain the prey
Creeping quietly

Gracious second skin
Courteous facade accepted
The cultured do not harm
Fitting in amongst the sheeple

Purpose clear
Sheltered secret
Unsoiled inceptive
Infantile delight
The itch that needs attention
Clandestine recreation
Craving obscured outside
Covering unbridled pretense

Breaks from the masquerade
Unrestrained fleeting moments reminiscence
To comprehend the need, ecstasy
Schizophrenic lies, seeking explanation

No excuse
no reasoning
Devoid of disease
Disguised expertise
Living in the shroud of ordinary
Waiting to unleash the polished skill set

Plethora of just rewards
Life through the power of the conquered
Repulsed by the dormant time
Disgusted by outlook of offspring should not breed

Arrogance in no one looking
Not suspected in any wrongs
Knowing steps of specialized inquiry
Superiority on display
Flaunting prowess prodding counterparts
Provocation stands unanswered
Divergence of standard procedure
Bestowment of allusion granted

Come on, false rival

No excuse,
no reasoning
Devoid of disease,
disguised expertise
Living in the shroud of ordinary
Waiting to unleash the polished skill set
