Take me to the Fire

(a song)

I’ve settled it
I’m bringing it all back
there’s no looking over
what’s already broken

you settled this
there’s nothing else left
but living a life
and being mistaken

take me to the fire
I’m filing my papers
you can shake the windows
and rattle the panes
but that won’t make
them let you in

take me to the fire
I’ve carried the orders
you can struggle and whine
and shake all you want
but that won’t make
them let you in

it’s easy now
just hold out your hand
the strap doesn’t hurt
as much you think

it’s easy now
just take what they give
you may think that you’re sailing
but I’m watching you sink
