Beneath the Burning Tree

Album: Memory And Humanity (2008)
  • Carbon copy aftertaste
    The taste of lips so delicate
    Stop the click and watch the room
    Sitting pretty in full bloom

    Your stain on my fingers
    Like a headache that the pills won't kill
    Your stain on my fingers
    Like a headache that the pills won't kill

    Hold your breath this is the part
    That I've been waiting for
    Words spill out in front of you
    On your bedroom floor

    Your stain on my fingers
    Like a headache that the pills won't kill
    Your stain on my fingers
    Like a headache that the pills won't kill

    I sat beneath the burning tree
    I never gave my world away
    Maybe I should, maybe I could
    I sat beneath the burning tree
    I never gave my world away
    Maybe I should, maybe I could

    I never gave my world away
    Maybe I should, maybe I could
    I never gave my world away
    Maybe I should, maybe I would

    I never gave my world away
    Maybe I should, maybe I could
    I sat beneath the burning tree
    I never gave my world away
    Maybe I should, maybe I could
    I sat beneath the burning tree
    The burning tree, the burning tree
