I'm burnt out
like a corpse in a campfire
all I got is time
there is something
in the eyes of a child
it may rust and fade
but it can never die
if I knew then
everything that I know now
I'd never blink again
I'm caught in a nose dive
no one escapes
no one makes it out alive
just like a fire in the mines

you can't make me go home
I don't need a hand to hold
when I'm ready to go
you will be the first to know
and I will see that this place
is laid to waste
ain't it a shame

I've been wearing
my heart taped on my sleeve
I'm not afraid of the dark
but I'm wary of sleep
I'm dried up
like the corpse of a vampire
time is on my side
I know I am burning
I can't feel the flames
but you can see the smoke for miles
just like a fire in the mine

you can't make me go home
I don't need a hand to hold
when I'm ready to go
you will be the first to know
hell no
I won't do what I'm told
'cuz I know
I'll be dead before im old
and I will see that this place
is laid to waste
ain't it a shame
ain't it a shame
ain't it a shame
maybe I'm to blame

I've changed now
like it's the curse of the full moon
the night is mine
I'm like a werewolf
with the mind of a child
you can plead and cry
all I can do is smile
if I could teach you
everything that I know now
you'd never breathe again
we've been stepping on landmines
we've made mistakes
and now we're gonna fucking die
a bullet between the eyes

you can't make me go home
I don't need a hand to hold
when I'm ready to go
you will be the first to know
and I will see that this place
is laid to waste
and they will rue the day
as we dance upon thier graves
ain't it a shame
baby not to me
