05. When You Burn Too Fast

by brave Saint Saturn


If the throttle is pulled
Back to burn through the fuel
And the mix is just right
But the speed is too cruel
Then even the strongest
Will slowly burn into ashes in the atmosphere
When you burn too fast
If you give it too much gas
Wave goodbye to it all
Oh how the mighty fall
Oh how the truth may slip
Tied to the breaking mast
When you burn too fast
Oh, you’ll pay it in blood
That kerosene fuels the evil flame
Where they’ve forgotten your name
And you’ll never last
And you’ll die very young
When you burn too fast
And the promises
They may or may not have made
Are just the needles sticking into your veins
Pumping all of their sick lies into you
Until you’re stupid enough
To look the other way
When you burn too fast
When you walk that plank
When the stench gets rank
When their knuckles dig so deep in your back
You just turn the crank
It’s when they bury you
They never cared for you
Just that you burn too fast
When they’ve bled you dry
And they cast you aside
Then they’ll put out their hands to be friends
Like they never lied
When that last light glides
And you wave goodbye
That's when you burn too fast
