  • Demi leaves rehab again
    When is this shit gonna end
    Sounds like the voice in my head
    I can't believe I'm not dead

    I'm alive by the skin of my teeth
    I survived but it got harder to breathe
    Asking why doesn't make it easier
    Go easier on me
    God damn it I just wanna be free
    But I can't 'cause it's a fucking disease
    I'm alive by the skin of my

    The reaper knocks on my door
    Cause I'm addicted to more
    I don't need you to keep score
    When I'm the one who's at war

    I'm alive by the skin of my teeth
    I survived but it got harder to breathe
    Asking why doesn't make it easier
    Go easier on me
    God damn it I just wanna be free
    But I can't 'cause it's a fucking disease
    I'm alive by the skin of my

    I'm just trying to keep my head above water
    I'm your son and I'm your daughter
    I'm your mother, I'm your father
    I'm just a product of the problem

    I'm just trying to keep my head above water
    I'm your son and I'm your daughter
    I'm your mother, I'm your father
    I'm alive

    I'm alive by the skin of my teeth
    Won't you try and have some mercy on me
    Asking why doesn't make it easier
    Go easier on me
    God damn it, I just wanna be free
    But I can't 'cause it's a fucking disease
    I'm alive by the skin of my

    (I, I'm alive by)
    (By the skin of my teeth)
