Lyrics

 

Lay awake

I don't give a shit

If I even ever wake up in the morning

Down below

There's a pile of sin

Always waiting for a

Waiting for a warning

Burned at the stake

Inside I'm blistering

Not a whisper

Looking in you'd never know it

Miles below

I look up again

When you snap they say

Before you never show it

Someone said it's all right

Save it now, don't say it for my sake

Someone said it's all right

Faster now, you know I got no brakes

Fuses glow

Wounds festering

Till the wind comes up

And takes it to the last pow

Back and forth

Staring at the wall

This room's a cage

I know that something's got to give now

Someone said it's all right

Save it now, don't say it for my sake

Someone said it's all right

Faster now, you know I got no brakes

No brakes

 

 

 

Well, I hope that you enjoyed playing this as I have tabbing it, hopefully

more.
