​A Fire In The Mine

This song is by Small Arms Dealer and appears on the album A Single Unifying Theory (2006).

I'm burnt out
Like a corpse in a campfire
All I got is time
There is something
In the eyes of a child
It may rust and fade
But it can never die
If I knew then everything that I know now I'd never blink again
I'm caught in a nose dive
No one escapes
No one makes it out alive
Just like a fire in the mine
You can't make me go home
I don't need a hand to hold
When I'm ready to go
You will be the first to know and I will see that this place is laid to waste
Ain't it a shame
I've been wearing my heart taped on my sleeve
I'm not afraid of the dark
But I'm wary of sleep
I'm dried up
Like the corpse of a vampire
Time is on my side
I know I am burning
I can't feel the flames, but you can see the smoke for miles
Just like a fire in the mine
You can't make me go home
I don't need a hand to hold
When I'm ready to go
You will be the first to know
Hell no, I won't do what I'm told
'Cause I know, I'll be dead before I'm old
And I will see that this place
Is laid to waste
Ain't it a shame
Ain't it a shame
Ain't it a shame
Maybe I'm to blame
I've changed now, like it's the curse of the full moon
The night is mine
I'm like a werewolf, with the mind of a child
You can plead and cry
All I can do is smile
If I could teach you everything that I know now, you'd never breathe again
We've been stepping on landmines
We've made mistakes, and now we're gonna fucking die
A bullet between the eyes
You can't make me go home
I don't need a hand to hold
When I'm ready to go, you will be the first to know
And I will see that this place is laid to waste
And they will rue the day, as we dance upon their graves
Ain't it a shame
Baby not to me
