Play Writing Progress

So, today as I go through the new Sixx:A.M. album trying to find filler for my play, which is still untitled, and I found a song Skin. Goes like this:

Paint yourself a picture
Of what you wish you looked like
Maybe then they just might
Feel an ounce of your pain
Come into focus
Step out of the shadows
It's a losing battle
There's no need to be ashamed
Cause they don't even know you
All they see is scars
They don't see the angel
Living in your heart
Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you got
That you are not
You are not your skin
When they start to judge you
Show them your true colors
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you
Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blindness
They're the ones that stand to lose

Reminds me a lot of how my life has been, and I wish I had been able to do this song for the recital. As it is, I think it will be the song James sings at R and Amiee's graves before he goes and buys heroin to dull his pain. But the song Live Forever has yet to be put in, and we still have 5 more songs to fit into James's storyline. At this point, it's a matter of seeing which songs are James viewing himself as the monster he's become and his actual experiences
