here i can hold 'em off for a while at least till i think of a way to make them see what i gotta show and to make them feel what i already know now pour the gas all over me light a match say a prayer and set me free turn your cameras on this burning boy i'll be the life of an image you can't destroy to see me here is to pass me by and to watch me live is to watch me die your conscience ignored your panic spread you're whimper in the wind that no one said you crucify what you fear hold up to the light make it shine the desperation in my eyes is no dim reflection i won't disguise but you never listened too afraid to give now i'm giving up on you to save face and deny you've lost your chance for a better way assassinate the threat immortalize the corpse write a book about the show and sell it to the source riddle me this and i'll share your world around hang me on your wall and i'll bring your hurt down

    General Commentthis song is absoloulty awesome live, but then again every show strung out perform is one to remember. jason cruz is absoloutly flawless when i heard him last, and i couldnt pick up any faults ont he rest of the band, and they really played the crowd, one of the most energetic bands i have ever seen. add the fact they always talk to the fans after the show, and you have undoubtedlt the best punk band ever.

    General CommentI kind of think of the whole Vietnam thing when I listen to this song. Like the burning thing has to do with the buring monk and then the corruption going on. I don't know I'm just throwing that out there.

    General CommentI agree that it has something to do with war. He's trying to survive in a foreign land while the media from back home is using him as a poster boy for the cause. They're treating him like a story, and they don't care if he lives or die. It could also be about some other fucked up person who the media obsesses over.
