"Candle" as written by Caleb D Pepp, Nicholas Dustin Coleman, Cody Edward Josephson, Kevin Thomas Snider, Arthi Meera and Matt Wysocki....
A leaf catches wind as I wake from sleep once again
I was dreaming of pulling my teeth right out of my head
Do you think there's some meaning to that
Like maybe I'm growing too old way too fast
And all my bridges are turning to ash behind my back

While I've been burning my candle at both ends
Don't go burning your candle at both ends

I've been smoking and thinking all day
Of how we might waste this whole winter away
Dreaming up songs of true love gone astray
And longing for spring
We are hungry but never afraid
We get by on crumbs and the strum of a string
Because we know nothing gold ever stays
We gave everything

I keep burning my candle at both ends
Won't stop burning that candle at both ends

The storm, it is coming my way
(I must be moving on)
I keep running but still can't escape
(The earth she curves and I go along
Through the grime of each day
It licks my skin gray)
Can't help but feel like I'm digging my own grave

I hope you enjoyed the parade
(The piss stench of my rolling home)
The bond that we built here today
(Grows stronger with each burning sun
Like the ash that we breathe
Like the love that we leave)
The blood and the sweat are for free
We won't charge you a thing

We keep burning our candle at both ends
You keep burning your candle at both ends

When you tell me I've been bad
I will turn my head and laugh
'Cause I've been drinking gin and I've been cursing
You said if you lead a life of sin
Then the fire is what you get
Well I'm only trying to live so I deserve it

La da da...
