A Fire In The Mine

lyrics

i'm burnt out. like a corpse in a campfire. all i got is time. there is something. in the eyes of a child. it may rust and fade. but it can never die. if i knew then everything that i know now i'd never blink again. i'm caught in a nose dive. no one escapes. no one makes it out alive. just like a fire in the mine. you can't make me go home. i don't need a hand to hold. when i'm ready to go. you will be the first to know and i will see that this place is laid to waste. ain't it a shame. i've been wearing my heart taped on my sleeve. i'm not afraid of the dark. but i'm wary of sleep. i'm dried up. like the corpse of a vampire. time is on my side. i know i am burning. i can't feel the flames, but you can see the smoke for miles. just like a fire in the mine. you can't make me go home. i don't need a hand to hold. when i'm ready to go. you will be the first to know. hell no, i won't do what i'm told. 'cuz i know, i'll be dead before i'm old. and i will see that this place. is laid to waste. ain't it a shame. ain't it a shame. ain't it a shame. maybe i'm to blame. i've changed now, like it's the curse of the full moon. the night is mine. i'm like a werewolf, with the mind of a child. you can plead and cry. all i can do is smile. if i could teach you everything that i know now, you'd never breathe again. we've been stepping on landmines. we've made mistakes, and now we're gonna fucking die. a bullet between the eyes. you can't make me go home. i don't need a hand to hold. when i'm ready to go, you will be the first to know. and i will see that this place is laid to waste. and they will rue the day, as we dance upon their graves. ain't it a shame. baby not to me
