See these eyes so green
I can stare for a thousand years
Colder than the moon
Well, it's been so long

And I've been running on fire
With gasoline

See these eyes so red
Red like jungle burning bright
Those who feel me near
Pull the blinds and change their minds

It's been so long

Still this pulsing night
A plague I call a heartbeat
Just be still with me
But you wouldn't believe what I've been through

You've been so long, well, it's been so long

And I've been putting out the fire with gasoline
Putting out the fire with gasoline

See these tears so blue
An ageless heart that can never mend
Tears can never dry
A judgement made can never bend

See these eyes so green
I can stare for a thousand years
Just be still with me
You wouldn't believe what I've been through

Well you've been so long, it's been so long

And I've been putting out fire with gasoline
Putting out fire with gasoline

Putting out fire
I've been putting out fire

Well it's been so long, so long, so long
Yes it's been so long, so long, so long
I've been putting out fire

Been so long, so long, so long
Been so long, so long, so long
Been so long, so long, so long
...
