Listen for the special guest on this song!


Stepping out into the dark
A fire caught be a spark
It happened so fast

The evidence I left behind
It burned with the pines
As it spread through the grass

And then to the town below
Feel the flames as they grow
It’ll only get worse

I tried to wait out the night
When sober eyes hit the light
They found me in chains

The warden said with a smile
They’ll be no need for a trial
But you’ll feel no pain

And so with a rope
Hang me up with the hope
That it won’t ever catch fire again


from Demos & Early Recordings, released September 4, 2019
