lyrics

burn

i'm not going back with my head in my hands
i'm so restless and weary, I don't know what to do
i'm not going back with my head in my hands

i'm down and out on the edge of town
a little poison now and then makes for better dreams
dark is the night on the edge of town

i've got a taste for blood and they gonna chew me up and spit me out

you have to learn how to burn in this fiery spiraling city
you have to burn, burn, burn out bright

i think so much of right and wrong
it never learned how to walk until i learned how to run
i'm not going back to the beasts up town

i only need my name in the paper twice, once when I was born free and when I die
and I guess if I find a wife (good god)

how can i live unbroken? love is mad and the world's on fire

you have to learn how to burn in this fiery spiraling city
you have to burn, burn, burn out bright
