Overkill – Burn You Down / To Ashes lyrics

With time runing down...
You make ammends to the ones you have tried to destroy.
So profound...
To make ammends to the ones who have tried to destroy, you...

As confusion mounts,
As you fall in rank,
The heart and mind, throbbing both go blank.
If you're not afraid...
Then why do you jump at the sound of my voice?
If you're not afraid...

With time running down...
You've done all that you could to be close to your God.
Life unfound...
You've done all that you should to be far from your God's, hands...

It blows like ash in the wind.
I throw no stone for I've sinned.
If you're not afraid
Why do you question the good of your choice?
If you're not afraid?
If you're not afraid...

Listen to for what you paid, but the speaker is a liar!
Working hard for what you made, your values are on fire!
Burning you down.

Scramble for what's good and right, testament to the manic.
The innocent flash before his eyes, the man begins his panic.
Burning him down.

What you are and what you've done is what you had to be.
What you are and what you've done gets the better of me.
Burning you down
Burning you. Down.
