Man on Fire

  • Fear of the sacred
    We're blurring lines between the real and the fake here.
    And so I scream, "Return to me.
    Return to me, return to me."

    Fear of the sacred
    We're blurring lines between the real and the fake here.
    And so I scream, "Return to me.
    Return to me, return to me."

    Breathe slowly; take shallow breaths
    So I shut you down; there's nothing left
    Why are all the saints sick of governing
    the knowledge that we're insane?
    Dear body, come to haunt me
    We drive ourselves through the fire's light

    "Free me," said the man on fire.
    "Release me to the higher.
    Fighting certainty I know, I won't regret this."
    "Find me," said the man on fire.
    "Release me to the higher.
    Forever in the dark alone, forgotten."

    My passion must be frightening
    I just shout to the dark
    And all I have is screaming
    I see paranoia, dark is calling me
    All the voices of the souls that used to be
    I must find a way to drown out the sound
    I must find a way to drown out the sound

    "Free me," said the man on fire.
    "Release me to the higher.
    Fighting certainty I know, I won't regret this."
    "Find me," said the man on fire.
    "Release me to the higher.
    Forever in the dark alone, forgotten."

    Set me alight, for I am losing it.
    Set me alight, for I am losing it.
    Set me alight, for I am losing it.
    Set me alight, for I am losing it.

    Fear of the sacred
    We're blurring lines between the real and the fake here.
    And so I scream, "Return to me.
    Return to me, return to me."

    Fear of the sacred
    We're blurring lines between the real and the fake here.
    And so I scream, "Return to me.
    Return to me, return to me." Writer/s: DAVID WINTER-BATES, DANIEL PETER WINTER-BATES, JASON WILLIAM CAMERON, ADAM CHRISTOPHER HANSELL JACKSON, KRISTAN DAWSON
