It used to be easy to listen to people
And take everything with a grain of salt
But now that I'm older I still hear voices
I do not wish to be involved

I don't want to be involved
With the incinerator anymore
that lifestyle is such a bore
Find the door

I want to leave this place
Can't take it anymore
Locked in a room and
The flames are burning down around me
And now I see the door
But I won't find a key
It's kinda sad but i'll never find
A better place to be
I'm not feeding the fire anymore

It makes me want to keep it locked inside
You got the gasoline but I don't have a light
I wanna hang out it's not a good time
I'd rather be somewhere that I could find
People that don't live off the words
That are said by someone else
Cause talking shit is so bad for your health

    General CommentThis song is the epitome of old school No Use. It is so hardcore and just fucking rocks... I had the chance to sing the last line when they played in Minneapolis back in '01.. Tony stuck the mic in our faces so we all could shout "I'm not feeding the fire... anymore!!" Was sooooo badass, will never forget it!

    General CommentI think this song is about moving on and finding new friends. He's sick of friends who talk shit. At least I'm kinda feeling that right now so I might be seeing something that isn't there.
