burn me down lyrics – house of heroes

“burn me down”

when i was young i thought like a child
and so i reasoned by why i could see;
childishly, show me the truth

is a kingdom just beyond reach?
or is it hidden where it’s plain to see
draw the curtain: revelation!

make clear to me
the mystery

there’s a spirit fire growing inside me
burn me down, burn me down
there’s a holy fire growing inside me
burn me down, burn me down
let it out…

like a shadow, like the sea mist
i cannot grasp it, yet it exists
in the background: eternity

make clear to me
the mystery

there’s a spirit fire growing inside me
burn me down, burn me down
there’s a holy fire growing inside me
burn me down, burn me down
let it out…

what will we do with all the old made new?
what will we do with all the dead made young?
what will we do with all the false made true?
what will we do? what will be done?
what will we do?

revelation!
eternity!
make clear to me
the mystery

there’s a spirit fire growing inside me
burn me down, burn me down
there’s a holy fire growing inside me
burn me down, burn me down
let it out
