burn me

Recorded in 2002/03 at GlassPlanet Studio w/ Ben Smith, Jason Jones, and producer Krys Keylor

you burn me.  you really do.

you take the cake down with you

and you eat it all too.

and she says try harder next time

for a hundred days and a hundred nights

it looks like something that you know it's not.

they get you.. out in the parking lot...

 

you burn me.  you really do.

you found the surround sound

and then you pulled it down too.

and she says try harder next time

for a hundred days and a hundred nights.

it looks like trouble but you know it's not.

they get you.. out in the parking lot...

 

like a mirror. like a hurricane. to see yourself.

and then me again. shadow dancing, lose your way.

excavate that empty place inside your heart capitulate and situate and either way you got to give it up, gotta give it up go yeah

you wake up in your make  swear you’re doing fine

stayed up til the break of day but it wasn’t even night

throw a bagel in the oven and you go out for a drive

check it in the rearview and the sun’s about to rise

 

i know you’re playing dumb and i know you do it well.

i’d love to talk you up but you stay down on yourself.

and billy says: i wasted time. but time will never tell

and you got the style to keep your smile you figure what the hell.

cut your hair dyed it red hate it now wear a wig

see abumpersticker said “it’s all on stolen time”

(background singers)i wasted time. now time waste me.

 

like a mirror, like a hurricane to see yourself then me again / shadow dancing lose your way, excavate the empty place inside your heart / capitulate and situate, and either way you’ve got to give it up, ya gotta give it up go. / wake up in your make up and you swear you’re doing fine / stayed out till the break of day it wasn’t even night / you throw a bagel in the oven and you go out for a drive / check it in the rearview, sun’s about to rise / you cut your hair dyed it red, hate it now you wear a wig / see a bumper sticker said, “it’s all on stolen time.”  / i know you’re playing dumb, i know you do it well / i’d love to talk you up but you stay down on yourself / and billy says i wasted time but time will never tell / now you got the style to keep the smile / you figure what the … / you cut your hair dyed it red, hate it now you wear a wig. / see a bumper sticker said, “it’s all on stolen time.”
