Moth

Album: Revelations (2006)
  • Thought I was different, it seems I'm just the same
    As again I put my hand over the flame
    I thought I was smarter as I flew into the sun
    But it turned out the way it does with everyone

    I don't fly around your fire anymore
    I don't fly around your fire anymore
    Burned and fallen down so many times before
    I don't fly around your fire anymore

    I love the heat, I love the things that I forgot
    I love the strings that tied me down and cut me off
    I was a king, I was a moth with painted wings made of cloth
    When did the flame burn so high and get so hot?

    [Repeat: x3]
    I don't fly around your fire anymore
    I don't fly around your fire anymore
    Burned and fallen down so many times before
    I don't fly around, fly around
    Fly around

    Fly around
