Though I get locked in a casket every time
You call my name and I reply
My voice will never be denied
And though I've fallen oh so far
I can rise, I can light your firey eyes
I can smile while I turn the tide

I cannot begin to say what you mean to me
When you're mean to me
Cause you need to be

Fire me up, I'm a kiln to burn your bricks
I'll burn them harder than they've ever burned
I'll stack them tall and thick when I
Build a dam you can take for granted when I've passed
Cause the past can never last
Dust to dust and ash to ash
Ash to ash

So when I laugh, when I smile and close my eyes
Know these are lies
And I'm just trying to get by
When you demand this damn diminutive disguise
My fury's blind and burns all ties
I hope the wise have time to hide

I cannot begin to say what you mean to me
When you're mean to me
Cause you need to be

Fire me up, I'm a kiln to burn your bricks
I'll burn them harder than they've ever burned
I'll stack them tall and thick when I
Build a dam you can take for granted when I've passed
Cause the past can never last
Dust to dust and ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash

I'm set up sideways in a land bound for decay
I rue the day I said that we had hope
I'm hopeless for today, hey
Give me water, I'll turn it into flames
Move mountains with my madness
Like my wine high-octane anyway

I cannot begin to say what you mean to me
When you're mean to me
Cause you need to be

Fire me up, I'm a kiln to burn your bricks
I'll burn them harder than they've ever burned
I'll stack them tall and thick when I
Build a dam you can take for granted when I've passed
Cause the past can never last
Dust to dust and ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash

I cannot begin to say what you mean to me
When you're mean to me
Cause you need to be
I cannot begin to say what it's like for me
To be everything
But I like to be

Fire me up, I'm a kiln to burn your bricks
I'll burn them harder than they've ever burned
I'll stack them tall and thick when I
Build a dam you can take for granted when I've passed
Cause the past can never last
Dust to dust and ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
Ash to ash
