burn lyrics – alkaline trio

there’s a lightning storm each and every night
crashing inside you like motorbikes
we toss and turn, sleep so loud
grind the teeth in our
our empty mouths (are empty…)

there’s a forest fire burning bright
spreading quickly towards our last rites
nowhere to run, pointless to hide
just lay there and scream, pretending to try
pretending…

intending to burn, pretending to fight it
everyone learns faster on fire
things took a turn, lost all desire
you live and you burn
you live and you burn

this impending doom is left deep inside
and it’s haunting you each and every night
like starving wolves counting sheep
we close our eyes, pretending to sleep
descending…

intending to burn, pretending to fight it
everyone learns faster on fire
things took a turn, lost all desire
you live and you burn
you live and…

like h*ll we are anxiously waiting
like h*ll burning silently strong
somehow we fell down by the wayside
and somehow this h*ll is home

as we burn, pretending to fight it
everyone learns faster on fire
things took a turn, lost all desire
you live and you burn
you live and…
like h*ll we are anxiously waiting
like h*ll burning silently strong
somehow we fell down by the wayside
and somehow this h*ll is home
right now, this h*ll is my home
