When I knew the place was burning, I knew I'd need a ride
Eight floors up, I worked and watched the smoke and cinder fly
Then we met up at Cutters

I knew right then I'd be lit long before the fire died
But I didn't know I couldn't treat you right until I tried

I get it from my mother or from her family's side
This pining through the day and pacing endlessly at night
Or maybe from my father

The day that I was born I knew that something wasn't right
But I didn't know I couldn't treat you right until I tried

What kind of man can't clear his own bars he's set himself so low?
But I knew the place was burning
