Lyrics

The nights are growin’ colder now the days begin to dim
So dark the shadows are they pull me in
Fumblin’ for a light switch hear the shudders in the wind
The only sign of daylight is the smell of somethin’ burnin’, somethin’ burnin’

Walk on pins and needles now my hairs all stand on end
The flames they are so warm they have become my only friend
Every word I let escape just hangs there in midair
I set my eye upon your ghost and fix it with a stare, fix it with a stare

I grit my teeth and bite my lip all my memories only gather dust
This burnin’ bush ain’t sanctified and everything that I’ve got left I’ve left to rust

Children sing forgiveness but I’ve never been that young
I’ve got the taste of ash and iron on my tongue
A bare light bulb it swings above a mattress on the flo’
There ain’t no angels sermons set the static dial on the radio, on the radio

I grit my teeth and bite my lip all my memories only gather dust
This burnin’ bush ain’t sanctified and everything that I’ve got left I’ve left to rust
