Burn To The Ground

There's no scars on my skin, they're hidden on my soul
I can't let go of a past that takes it's daily toll
what used to be a lookout point is now a muddy hole
someone grab the captain's wheel this ship has lost control

something I've been searching for is nearly in my sight
I can't tell you what it is, but one day I just might
somewhere on the razor's edge between what's wrong and right
don't believe your eyes unless you're looking for a fight

I don't know the meaning and I'm not sure of the cost
the gray side's where I'm heading boys, the good side's what I've lost
maybe things have changed that much and maybe they have not
maybe I'm about to lose the best thing that I've got

come with me my gypsy wife, this city's all a-fire
we can climb atop the hill where smoke can go no higher
for there is no flame hotter then our mutual desire
let's not waste another hour, this situation's dire

stare into the sun, my eyes are blinded, but my torture's done
burn! burn to the ground!

nothing left from yesterday can work again today
nothing you can say to me can make it go away
deep beneath this callused skin a heart keeps beating on
and left out for the scavengers another promise’s gone

give that head another hit, the truth is drawing in
fasten up your safety belt and let the show begin
set your course to take this wreck into the closest star
let your mind begin to melt, we cannot go too far

stare into the sun, my eyes are blinded, but my torture's done
burn! burn to the ground!
