A FIRE IN THE MINE

im 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
im caught in a nose dive
no one escapes
no one makes it out alive
just like a fire in the mines

you cant make me go home
i dont need a hand to hold
when im ready to go
you will be the first to know
and i will see that this place
is laid to waste
aint it a shame

i've been wearing
my heart taped on my sleeve
im not afraid of the dark
but im wary of sleep
im 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 cant make me go home
i dont need a hand to hold
when im ready to go
you will be the first to know
hell no
i wont do what im told
'cuz i know
i'll be dead before im old
and i will see that this place
is laid to waste
aint it a shame
aint it a shame
aint it a shame
maybe i'm to blame

i've changed now
like its the curse of the full moon
the night is mine
im 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 cant make me go home
i dont need a hand to hold
when im 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 thier graves
aint it a shame
baby not to me
