Child of Burning Time Lyrics

My only consolation is all lies
The apex of my consequence is dying here tonight
Winter has returned and it always looks like rain
I can't remember anything...anything
Inside the absolution is to come
And appetites are bittersweet I think I'm coming home
A chance to give up Avarice has marked my one regret
The child of burning time has gone, he hasn't come back
He hasn't come back yet

Before I tell my story please consider who I am
I missed my window years ago, I'm doing all I can
A tragedy is commonplace but in the end they go away
A skin is still the only stain I'm left to wear in shame
And I cut my need into my heart, I tear it all apart
I beg you burn me away, I won't become your hero
just to fight the life I saved
Burn me away, I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today

I burn away
I burn away
I burn away
I burn away

My isolation is my course
The effect it has on life itself is a cancer on its source
I rue the moments spent between the fetish and the flame
Until this war is over I won't ever lose my rage

And I cut my need into my soul, I guess I'll never know
I beg you burn me away, I won't become your hero
just to fight the life I saved
Burn me away, I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today

Burn me away, I wont become your hero just to fight the life I saved
Burn me away, I wont give up tomorrow just to lose it all, lose it all today

This song's lyrics are as sharp as the razor's edge. Is' a complex theme the one put on line here. Taylor speaks of deified figures in someone's life -I'm not talking about idols, no, someone close to yous is more like to possess that role, the who KNOWS that he/she is not good for your mental health, as you BELIEVE he/she is....
