​Fire Down Below

This song is by Alkaline Trio and appears on the compilation Warped Tour 2007 Tour Compilation (2007).

It's been a lifetime since I last confessed to you
And I've had little trouble concealing the truth
I've been nothing but lies and deceitful
Here's the church, open the peephole
There for me, apologies have taken on a whole new meaning now

You've waited your whole life for this
Begged for mercy and forgiveness
Nothing up above but darkness and fire down below
And me and my friends waiting on your soul

It's been a long time since I've last had words with you
Not sure what I'd say now, to tell you the truth
I've had this feeling weighing heavily
On my mind and chest cavity
Don't pray for me, one day you'll find I'm sleeping in my urn, feeling just fine

You've waited your whole life for this
Begged for mercy and forgiveness
Nothing up above but darkness and fire down below
And me and my friends waiting on your soul

Fix me a drink, tell me a story
Take my head off these gut-wrenching worries
Make my mistakes my guilt admissions
Please pass the plate and the ammunition

You've waited your whole life for this
Begged for mercy and forgiveness
Nothing up above but darkness and fire down below
And me and my friends waiting on your soul
