  • Well I could be brief
    But what would that change?
    I just beg to borrow time
    Adding minutes to my life
    To long for something I can't buy
    And I try to look like I'm fine
    But there's proof in every phrase
    And these rings around my tired eyes say something's gotta change

    Ashes ashes
    Buried in his mattress
    Slept in flames
    And smothered in his blanket

    Stay with me
    Bear with me
    I am a novelty
    But I'm twice the man I used to be
    Oh agony (agony)
    Bear with me
    I am a dying breed
    But I'm twice the man I used to be
    Ashes ashes

    Well I do believe that our decline is pre-disposed
    But it keeps me on my toes
    I can't accept what I can't control
    And I pray that I can be cured
    And never leave this place
    Lady luck beyond my sight as I'm just withering away

    Ashes ashes
    Buried in his mattress
    Slept in flames
    And smothered in his blanket

    Stay with me
    Bear with me
    I am a novelty
    But I'm twice the man I used to be
    Oh agony (agony)
    Bear with me
    I am a dying breed
    But I'm twice the man I used to be

    And it's too late for me
    I've been talking in my sleep
    And I've got nothing to say to me

    Ashes ashes
    Buried in his mattress
    Slept in flames
    And smothered in his blanket

    Stay with me
    Bear with me
    I am a novelty
    But I'm twice the man I used to be
    Oh agony (agony)
    Bear with me
    I am a dying breed
    But I'm twice the man I used to be Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
