watch it burn lyrics – sick of it all

head straight for the edge
same mistakes again
lessons never learned
strike the match and watch it burn

burn myself once again
i ride it out to the bitter end

it’s easy to ignore writing on the wall
block out all concerned
head for the crash and burn

burn myself once again
i ride it out to the bitter end
when will i ever learn?
i strike the match and watch it burn

good intentions pave the road
a one way street and we all know where it goes
i see the warnings and how this ends
i block it out and fail myself once again

burn, burn myself once again
i ride it out to the bitter end
when will i ever learn?
i strike the match and watch it burn
i’ll watch it burn

i’ll watch it burn
a constant battle that never ends
against the prison walls i put myself in
i’ll watch it burn
under the pressure, i start to fold
as this demon tears away at my soul
i’ll watch it burn
i won’t go out, no not that way
i steel myself and live to fight another day
i’ll watch it burn

burn, burn, i’ll strike the match and watch it burn
