LYRIC

I didn’t build this place
I didn’t get to pick where the trees were planted and the bricks were paved
I didn’t sink the post or hang the wire around this hell I’m in
And there’s no escape and nothing’s safe
When you’re a prisoner to everything

I couldn’t run away from my reflection
Smoke and mirrors in both directions
Empty memories on every wall
Burn the hurt to the ground just take it all
I poured the gas, I lit the match
Didn’t grab a damn thing on my way out
But I stopped and watched as the flames grew higher
To my house on fire

I still replay those words
Only ten years old and hate is what I heard
From that loving church
“And there’s no salvation on the road you’re takin’ ”
“And a kid like you ain’t worth saving”

I couldn’t run away from my reflection
Smoke and mirrors in both directions
Empty memories on every wall
Burn the hurt to the ground just take it all
I poured the gas, I lit the match
Didn’t grab a damn thing on my way out
But I stopped and watched as the flames grew higher
To my house on fire

Too fragile to be strong
And so afraid to be wrong

Oooaaaah woooaah

I couldn’t run away from my reflection
Smoke and mirrors in both directions
Empty memories on every wall
Burn the hurt to the ground just take it all
I poured the gas, I lit the match
Didn’t grab a damn thing on my way out
But I stopped and watched as the flames grew higher, higher, higher
To my house on fire
Fire (fire)
Fire (fire)
Fire

Fire
Fire

(end)
