Strung Out – Ashes lyrics

There's a blood stain on the floor by the door
Where your whole world fell and died
There's a silent chair in the corner of the room
Where you sat alone and cried

Well she got something to say to you
But the words never mean a thing
So she took that needle to her pain and set herself free

Burn it to the ground

When times got tough you got a little tougher
Then you slowly fell behind
Run to catch the things you could not see
Run to catch what you could not find
Well I never wanted to need you
Now it's time for you to see
This forgotten pain that you tried to hide
Buried in your apathy

Burn it to the ground
Burn it to the ground
Burn it to the ground
You gotta burn it to the ground

We burn
I burn
They burn

Burn all the things that you feel inside
It's on the mother fuckin wall that you're gonna die
Burn all the things that are slipping away
And watch the fall of society

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The ashes of the temple where we used to burn
Burn all the things that are slipping away
Burn everything that we fucking say
Burn all the dreams that you keep inside
Yeah burn them all back to the ground, go
