Overkill – Let It Burn lyrics

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
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
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
