Greensky Bluegrass – Burn Them lyrics

Wanna be a bad guy in a silent film,
Light up the candles and the space between the shadows.
I wouldn't have to say nothing, or sound mean
I just wouldn't smile or look to clean...
Thinkin' I'll be good, my guess better than they should,
what if sorrow swims.
Good god what if I need to burn them.

They can't all be good, my guess
But they should
But if sorrow swirls
Good guy, won't even burn them

Instrumental

I could have cut my hair off
And shaved my beard
Stop wearing wires
And keep nothing clean

What a relief from the pressure,
Just being hated
And I learned that being bad
Is nothing but pleasure

They can't all be good, my guess
But they should
But if sorrow swirls
Good guy, won't even burn them
Good guy, won't even burn them
Good guy, won't even burn them

Instrumental

I could rob some worse guys
I don't like the good ones
How to get money
I don't have to worry

Baby give it all away for a reason to steal
Not a chance from keeping it still

They can't all be good, my guess
But they should
But if sorrow swirls
Good guy, won't even burn them

They can't all be good, my guess
But they should
But if sorrow swirls
Good guy, won't even burn them
Good guy, won't even burn them
Good guy, won't even burn them
