I wake up to the smell of gasoline
I toss and turn, try to get back to my dream
And if I burn yeah I won't even scream
I'll let the embers take me

I filter out the words I really mean
I try to speak but my words just seem obscene
Thoughts of you and me are so unclean
I'll let the fire take me

These burning houses that we live in
We don't want out, we like the pain
These burning houses seep through the skin
We don't want out, we need the flame
We're burning away

I take a shower and I bathe in motor oil
The microwave is packed with aluminum foil
I'll let it heat as the water starts to boil
You push me under the lava

I brush my teeth but they never seem quite clean
They're fading black with the stains of nicotine
I said I'll love you forever but that's not what I mean
I just want to fuck you

These burning houses that we live in
We don't want out, we like the pain
These burning houses seep through the skin
We don't want out, we need the flame
We're burning away

I close the door and light another match
The candles burn as the knife slips in my back
I shrug it off, it's just another scratch
And I knew that you would be waiting

I take a pill and swallow with my pride
Shallow waters give thought to what's inside
When you say you love me I just want to die
Because I know you're leaving

These burning houses that we live in
We don't want out, we like the pain
These burning houses seep through the skin
We don't want out, we need the flame
We're burning away

These burning houses that we live in
We don't want out, we like the pain
These burning houses seep through the skin
We don't want out, we need the flame
We're burning away to ashes

These burning houses we have been trapped in
Are now just ashes blowing in the wind
I sing you to sleep, I sing you to sleep
Goodbye
