Charles P Mother Stutter is raising the stakes with each new single being released and Orange Peel is no different. Very refined song writing, polished production, and one of the best vocal performances I’ve heard in a bit. Definitely worth the purchase.

lyrics

Me and my tough skin
Craving how you twist the blade
The envy of a pitted fruit
The way I rot, Confusing love for pain

I turn to mush in your hands
The bruises always seem to heal
But will you still want me when
I'm left empty like an orange peel

Come, grab ahold and squeeze
Teach me about men of your kind
The ones that cut you open
Just to see what's inside

Like a line of ants
Marching toward a feast
You take me bit by bit
Breaking me piece by piece
I've never felt so devoured.
Where did you learn to dispose?
I always leave you so stripped down
I always leave you, exposed.

Come, grab ahold and squeeze
Teach me about men of your kind
The ones that cut you open
Just to see what's inside

Like a host of maggots
My body laid to waste
The intoxicating habit
Of spoiling sweetness upon being tasted

Come, grab ahold and squeeze
Teach me about men of your kind
The ones that cut you open
Just to see what's inside

Come, grab ahold and squeeze
Teach me about men of your kind
The ones that cut you open
And leave you empty like an orange rind

Didn't anybody ever teach you not to play with your food!
