Reflux (Rootwater)

The city is on fire My anger oh, so dire The fire burns to the bone Charring the brain and leaving the stone I’m burning on again I’m going through again Oh, my mother never loved me My mother never loved me My mother never loved me Don’t blame me I am the ultimate The one legitimate The city burning away My own Gomorrah on judgement day The purifying blast The echoes from the past Inside and all around me The city’s burning, the city in me Oh, my mother never loved me My mother never loved me My mother never loved me Don’t blame me The sun is so high above me Makes me wonder Makes me wonder Come back and hold me tight Lead me into the light Come take my hand and say I am not to blame A burning man and fire in his wake Razing all within the very core A burning man at self-erected stake To feel what he’s burning for Flames go up so high The fire is so high And the walls fall down on me again And the fire peels my skin Once again I burn to make it real For the peace the fire brings
