Controlled Burn

This song is by Tall Heights and appears on the album Man of Stone (2013).

Burn
Left me out
A hound ungroomed
With one nigh moon
I was consumed
I howled to it
Oh, I was loud
In drinking rooms
And dim saloons
When I found you
I found you wounded
But you wore your heart like a lady
And I lit your smokes like a man
Burn
Gathered 'round
When eyes adjusted
In fire we trusted
Tending to a bed of kindle
I stoked it on and on
When dry wind roused
Our hearts unready
It painted red with orange hands
And a brush more hot than what we want
All around we just danced
So drunk upon the lawn
And you danced the steps of a lady
And I tried to lead like a man
The bells only ring in emergency
There's hazard in heat to discern
In a controlled burn
When we were found
Our molars made
The sorry case
"Where goes our boy?"
"Where goes our girl?"
Our fathers cried
I never heard
And the bells only ring in emergency
There's hazard in heat to discern
It warms and it dances
It speaks out of turn and it runs
Controlled burn
