lyrics

Burning alive
Because I’ve giving up on hopeful wishing
Burning alive
Because I can’t accept a superstition
Burning alive
Because I get my fill of filthy living
Burning alive
Because I aint got a prayer worth listing

Never getta a break because I’m a lost cause
Find a another way because they’ve got it all wrong
They’ve got it all wrong
My wasted swan song
They’ve got it all wrong
Am I going to drown?
Can’t go a day without sinkin
Breathe in and out
Cough up blood, but not bleedin
They Tell me to lie down
I got a restless mind, sit still and
They Tell me to white out
All the sin that colors these black eyes

Burning alive, I know I can answer my own questions.
Born to survive, I'm aware of my oppression

Burning alive
Because I’ve givin up on hopeful wishin
Burning alive
Because I can’t accept a superstition
Burning alive
Because I get my fill of filthy livin
Burning alive
Because I aint got a prayer worth listin

Never getta a break because I’m a lost cause
Find a another way because they’ve got it all wrong
They’ve got it all wrong
They’ve got it all wrong
My whole life long
Warn out and beat down
No rest for my shaky hands
Learning to live without
Distrust will be my doctrine
Pass through a ghost town
Never acknowledging my demons
Learning to do without
Promises of tomorrow, peace of mind to live another day

They called me hate
In a black hole, enclosed by the pearly gates
A villain, a snake
Eternal skeptic, held down by my own weight
Crush me, I can’t believe them
How Unworthy, I won’t, I can’t accept their pity
I’m a stray dog, bred to be on my own
I have never felt so cold.
