Child Of Burning Time Lyrics

...The Child of Burning Time...
...The Child of Burning Time...

My only consolation is a LIE
The Apex of my Consequence is dying here tonight
Winter hasn't ended and it always looks like rain
I can't remember anything...

Inside the Absolution, we Succumb
And appetites are bittersweet
I think I'm going NUMB
A chance to give up Avarice has marked my one regret
The Child of Burning Time is Gone
He hasn't come back yet...

Before I tell my story, please consider who I am
I missed my window years ago
I'm doing all I can
A tragedy is commonplace, but in the end they go away
My skin is still the only stain I'm left to wear in shame

I cut my name into my heart
I'll tear it all apart
I Beg You... Burn Me Away...
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I save
Burn Me Away...
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today
I Burn Away... (4X)

My isolation is my course
The effect it has on life itself
is a cancer on its source
I rue the moments spent between
the Fetish and the Flame
Until this war is over, I won't ever lose my rage

I cut my name into my soul
I guess I'll never know
I Beg You... Burn Me Away...
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I save
Burn Me Away...
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today

Burn Me Away...
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I save
Burn Me Away...
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today
