Here-here, got the lock-down cover me
Fear-fear, got the in to let it out
So near, feel it's breath all over me
Everything is inside, nothing going out
I hear you, I see you, I put you out
I hate you, I love you, I burn you down
Got the need, right here to let it out
Got the need, light the match and let it burn
[Ch]
Listen here to the fire, as it burns up your back
Take your heart, gonna let it burn listen here to the fire
You're sure lookin' tired with a knife in your back
Through your heart, man that's gotta burn, listen here to the fire
Unclear where to start and where to end
I know what the need is all about
So near I can feel it eating me
Everything upside, upside down
I smell you, I taste you, what you're about
I loath you, I adore you to the ground
Got the need right here to let it out
Got the need, light the match and let it burn
[Ch]
[Br]
I don't seek the answers to the questions that I learn
I don't start the fires I lay back and watch them burn
I see ashes floating transformed the way they used to be
I see ashes floating down they come to cover me
