I've been carving down the days on my bedroom door
Teeth are all but gone
Taking a beating, from grinding when I'm sleeping
I've busted out the boards on my window sill
Nails tried keep me here I'm dying
But nothing can stop me from trying
To crawl my way out this grave
Before I decay
I will make a clean break

And burn it down, I'll burn this town behind me
And run until I can't breathe
I'm breaking out
I'll bury all my mistakes
And rebuild until my back breaks

Consider them convinced I'm a lunatic
Eyes are wide and crazed
I feel it happen, oh they can have it
Send a stack of bricks through the neighbors house
Watch them as they spill into the yard
They don't know how lucky they are
They swiped the vultures aside
I swear they're alive, boy just look in their eyes

Burn it down, I'll burn this town behind me
And run until I can't breathe
I'm breaking out
I'll bury all my mistakes
And rebuild until my back breaks down

On my gravestone,for all to see it reads
"I took this city out,
At the knees at least"
On your gravestone
Covered in leaves will read
"nothing more than
Rest In, Rest In Peace"

Burn it down, I'll burn this town behind me
And run until I can't breathe
I'm breaking out
I buried all my mistakes
And we bend until my back breaks down
