The fire has gone but the smoke remains
And the taste is strong, but I can't explain
The feeling inside that you manage to hide from me
And I won't deny you trick me easily
Blinding lights shine in my eyes
But I see now all the same

I can't breath your air
Drowning no one cares
Screaming in my ear
But I can't hear a sound
I can't stand your heat
Burns the best of me
Your intensity is pushing me away
Stop pushing me away

Your pace is fast
But I'm bleeding slow
Turn my heart to glass
So the pains on show
And all of your people
Shout what can you do for me
Then you tie me down
Just to set me free

Blinding lights shine in my eyes
But I see now all the same
It's only plastic smiles and lies
But I see now all the same

(Repeat Chorus)

Like a moth drawn to the pain you hypnotise
And I can feel you in my vains electrified
Well I know in the past you've tried to guide me
Hide me drive me, thrill me kill me
I've got to get away, I've got to get away

(Repeat Chorus)

The fire has gone but the smoke remains and the taste is strong
