Child of Burning Time Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
I burn away
I burn away
I burn away
I burn away
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
