lyrics

Burn For Life

Here I am, gliding to the edge I knew I'd find;
In the end, it doesn't matter how close you were to right;
Wrong's a lesson learned by those brave enough to dive;
Here I am, judge me now, or push me from the light;

Maybe, I wanted these wall to crumble down -
Here tonight, I don't want this noose or your sad excuse for life;
Running back, I'll find the boy I left scared standing with the knife;
And kill the man, and start again, knowing;

I'll
Burn for life,
Burn for life,
Burn for life,

Here I am, take your riches, and your reasons not to try;
If God's a friend, then maybe your doctrine's just lie -
To stop the damned, from rising up and questioning your pride;
Pour a drink, my friend, and tell me, 'Who gets out of this – alive?”

Maybe, I believe Jesus was a man like you and I;
With a burning fire to question if the church still had the right;
To put a fence around your heart or steal all [of] your fuckin' time;
Please drink the wine, and start again, knowing – knowing;

I'll
Burn for life,
Burn for life,
Burn for life,

Take me down;
Have I burned too long?
Take me down;
Have I burned too long?

A couple friends hit the bar to talk about the end;
What they found was the same thing that no one ever says;
“I could be wrong, my religion's just a story I was read;'
Who kills a man with a chance, 'cause one day you'll be dead?

Here I am, take your pitchforks and your torches to the grave;
Dig it deep, and throw the dirt on this cross you call a faith;
We're all to blame, for thinking, we're the ones who've found a better way;
Please call the cab and pay the tab, if you really want t' save me;

I'll
Burn for life,
Burn for life,
Burn for life,
