i keep wearing
my skin
like an old worn
jacket and jeans,
stitched

over and
over again

Smell the sin on my dirty clothes,
stretch the skin and hose  it down;

Good as new. 
You say you've sewn a thicker skin,
You say, this one will help me stay subdued.

My guess is this refers to "Holding on to the past" if it doesn't then I'm afraid I'm lost.

Ah~ this is beautiful! -even though most strangers don't see much beauty in scars covering one's body, that's why I rather cover 'em up with old worn jackets and jeans-

Oooh. I love this one a lot. I don't have many scars though. x3
My skin hasn't been stitched so many times. c;

this is a really important piece. sometimes you wear your old things because they are comforting to you, other times it's because you just don't give a shit

I concur (on all three counts). And sometimes it's because it's the only jacket you have, and there's no choice but to mend it. Repeatedly.
