Child Of Burning Time

This song is by Slipknot and appears on the album All Hope Is Gone (2008).

Child of burning time
Child of burning time

My only consolation is a lie
The apex of my consequence is dying here tonight
Winter hasn't ended and it always looks like rain
I can't remember anything (anything)

Inside the absolution, we succumb
And appetites are bittersweet; I think I'm going numb
A chance to give up avarice has marked my one regret
The child of burning time is gone
He hasn't come back yet...

Before I tell my story, please consider who I am
I missed my window years ago; I'm doing all I can
A tragedy is commonplace, but in the end, they go away
My skin is still the only stain I'm left to wear in shame

I cut my name into my heart
I'll tear it all apart
I beg you

Burn me away
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I save
Burn me away
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today

I burn away

My isolation is my course
The effect it has on life itself is a cancer on its source
I rue the moments spent between the fetish and the flame
Until this war is over, I won't ever lose my rage

I cut my name into my soul
I guess I'll never know
I beg you

Burn me away
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I save
Burn me away
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today
Burn me away
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I save
Burn me away
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all, lose it all today
