(I.Monteiro)
Originally performed by the Drugstore.
Jeff performed it live at Mercury Lounge, New York, on December 31 1995.

I feel the time is coming

I walk into the night
Oh, I don't mind if the clock is turning
'cause I'm going to the other side
You either die
Or you keep on burning alive
And I am burning
And I am burning
And I am burning
And I am burning

I walked a long long distance

I'm feeling sore inside
Oh, I don't care if the sky is falling
'cause I'll never get to see the light

You either die
Or you keep on burning alive
And I am burning
And I am burning
And I am burning
And I am burning

You either die
Or you keep on burning alive..
And I am burning
