lyrics

Broken bottles and a burnt out smoke
Bitten nails and a brittle hope
Counting tiles on the bathroom floor
Flinching as she hears the creaking door

Fire, lay down in the fire

Cuts burn bright on a face so pale
Tells a twisted little fairytale
Hides the damage just as best she can
And she'll forgive her ever loving man

Fire, lay down in the fire

Her own mother barely even blinks
Look at everything this bastard brings
Four solid walls and a leak-less roof
My girl the bottom line's the only truth

Fire, lay down in the fire

Desire, to lay down in the fire

Out looking in, it's a pretty picture
In, looking out, just a worthless bitch and
He's just a man, does what he can he's not a monster

Fire, lay down in the fire

She falls asleep in a burning room
These four walls will become her tomb
From the grave let the blossom bloom
She falls asleep in a burning room

Fire, lay down in the fire
Desire,

Leaned from her mother so she
Lay down in the fire
He broke her spirit so she
Lay down in the fire
She lit a cigarette and
Lay down in the fire
She always hoped for something better
