lyrics

The sun in the west pierces my eyes with its glare
I apologize for all the things that I've done
I'm not good enough
I've never been good enough
Every bug on my face is deserved no doubt
I don't fight the burn, I put my eyes to the sky...

Put my eyes to the sky
I know what will make this right
The gas station's in sight.
Hot-wire that tanker and drive into the night.
Surely my justice is truest, surely my justice is right.

The gas pedal depresses as I pass all the houses of people I hate.
Though I know very few of them, set on my tank I'm coming.
Justice truest, justice right.
As I hit the building, the souls take flight.

I turn around see your body in flames;
You were never meant to be there.
You were never meant to be there;
It's hard to admit I had nothing to gain.
And now I have lost one true thing of value,
I longed for the cold months ago
Almost as much you do now
I'm sure you do now.

Fight for your life
(Sadness as I watch my crime)
Flames growing in size
(As my soul burns away)
You're warmer now
(I wish I was colder today)

I know what I'm doing
I've known all along.
I know.

You're gone.

The sun touches our ashes, smiles upon the night.
