Album: The Century of Self (2009)
  • It hit my mind, it came to me
    In order to live its got to be freed

    And all I want
    Is this grace undone
    Its haunting my head now
    Like a prodigal son

    Like a dog tired sage
    You know I couldn't wait
    I want to set this place aflame
    Frame by frame

    A lingering vision burning my memory
    A scorching scene dying by the sea

    Like a dog tired sage
    You know I couldn't wait
    To set this place aflame
    Frame by frame

    It didn't take long
    To see it gone
    Look at what I've done
    I've seen it, want to feed it
    Burn it down and just free it
    I need it now
    I need you right now

    Night descends the fires rage
    Through the morning light Writer/s: Mark Gane
    Publisher: BMG Rights Management
