Near or far, wherever you are
Freeway: Death march.
Feeling parched like a tidal wave
The tank is dry, but the earth is bound to shake
You're not alone in this nightmare, but you're begging to fall awake

The embers, they spell out the names
Of winters that never came
From the dark they'll illuminate the night
With torches high and venom in their eyes
Evacuations like a cancer, they'll burn us all alive

Salem ain't so far from here
But it's just not fair for us to live in fear
You are the light of my life, so please stay out of the fire
No doubt they'll come for us, but I pray to God that in my heart you'll trust
You're not as evil as they say
So please, oh please don't fly away

Where will you go, when you leave this world alone?
They say that it's better. Dreamless sleep forever and ever
Violence is all you've ever known
Fall at the stake, or vacate the throne
Come towards the light they said
We'll burn out bright instead

Burn, Burn, everybody burn
Burn, Burn, everything you've learned
Burn, Burn, until love finds a way.
