Burn It Down 03:01
On a dark street fogging up the windows in the Backseat hot and heavy sinners share a heartbeat With some much at stake Well it was a Sweet line confession to the crickets at midnight he didn't mean kiss me but he realized a little too late get a little bit Get a little higher so I can see the top of this fire I’m about ready just to burn it down, burn it down I want to get a little higher see the dark edge of desire I’m about ready just to burn it down Burn it down Burn it Burn it down Burn it Burn it down Burn it Burn it down Burn it Burn it down It gets a little Theirs a village of haters who'd shout it out with the whispers They gossip worst than a the preacher who's lost the will to pray When it gets Lonely thinking if only he’d Call me Then maybe I could forget the the whole thing lite a match Runaway higher so I can see the top of this fire I’m about ready just to burn one down, burn one down I want to get a little higher see the dark edge of desire I’m about ready just to burn one down burn one down Burn it Burn it down Burn it Burn it down Burn it Burn it down Burn it Burn it down It gets a little

8:45 in the morning Southbound on 99 Car tires squeal without warning Crushed metal shattered glass Sirens scream In the morning light Life it changed In a blink of an eye Here I am I'm one of those People who knows how fragile life can be I survived i was lucky this time Cause when you've seen the things that I have seen You change your mind you start listening This moment is the only one you know When you see the end of the road like me When you've seen the end of the road nothing will ever be The same Slow-motion doctors and nurses Twirl around my hospital bed The air fills with medical jargon Swirling inside my head AII I want is to go back to normal Or was my normal just naive Here I am I'm one of those People who knows how fragile life can be I survived i was lucky this time Cause when you've seen the things that I have seen You change your mind you start listening This moment is the only one you know When you see the end of the road like me When you've seen the end of the road nothing will ever be The same

Twenty-five years and my life is still Trying to get that great big hill of hope For a destination I realized quickly when I knew I should That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man For whatever that means And so I cry sometimes When I'm lying in bed Just to get it all out What's in my head And I, I am feeling a little peculiar And so I wake in the morning And I step outside And I take a deep breath and I get real high And I scream from the top of my lungs What's going on? Here's a little song I wrote You might want to sing it note for note Don't worry, be happy In every life we have some trouble But when you worry you make it double Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy now And I try, oh my god do I try I try all the time, in this institution And I pray, oh my god do I pray I pray every single day For a revolution. And so I wake in the morning And I step outside And I take a deep breath and I get real high And I scream from the top of my lungs What's going on? Ain't got no place to lay your head Somebody came and took your bed Don't worry, be happy The landlord say your rent is late He may have to litigate Don't worry, be happy But don't worry, be happy, be happy now
