I decline to walk the line
They tell me that I'm lazy
Worldly wise, I realize
That everybody's crazy
A woman's voice reminds me
To serve and not to speak
Am I myself or just another freak

You know there's fire in the hole
And nothin' left to burn
I'd love to run out now
There's no way left to turn, no, no

With a cough, I shake it off
And work around my yellow stripe
Should I hide or eat my pride
Or wait until it's good and ripe
My life is boiling over
It's happened once before
I wish someone would open up the door

Don't you know there's fire in the hole
And nothin' left to burn
I'd love to run out now
There's no way left to turn

Don't you know there's fire in the hole
And nothin' left to burn
I'd love to run out now
There's no way left to turn

Yeah, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye
