My Burning Heart Is Not Your Desire

-

Comin' home to a lost rust inside my heart

That lays restless in the dusty art

That sets me apart from the world

As the world explodes

__one more time in my mind

And before my eyes

__I see myself die

I don't need to know the truth

I just need to get over you

-

I'm not about to complain

You won't see me just waste away

You are the garbage of my life

So I don't want you back

-

You don't have to pick me up

If I fall

__you're just not enough

____to pick me up

You don't have to

Oh no

__I'm not yours

You don't have to

Oh no

__you're not mine

Goodbye

-

Rustling in the leaves that refuse to fall here

I never knew I could forget beer

The bare minimum that was my

Addiction, sometimes

__when I could not get high

And before I knew

__it, I lost dear you

Now you'll never know the truth

But I can't get close to you

-

I'm not about to complain

You won't see me just waste away

You're the garbage of my life

So I don't want you back

-

You don't have to pick me up

If I fall

__you're just not enough

____to pick me up

You don't have to

Oh no

__I'm not yours

You don't have to

Oh no

__you;re not mine

Goodbye

-

__say goodbye to your dying clown

__I will never come around

__in pieces we will fall apart

__and everything will turn to art

__as I throw you up and ev'rything

__you'll always stay away from me

__just keep on gettin'

__keep gettin'

__gettin'

__gettin' away from me

__I know I never meant a thing

__that's not something

____that you need to show me

__'cause I already know

____I was not enough

__or just too much

__you don't give a fuck

__well, that's all I seem to know

-

I'm not about to complain

You won't see me waste away

You are the garbage of my life

So I don't want you back

-

You don't have to pick me up

If I fall

__you're just not enough

____to pick me up

You don't have to

Oh no no

__no no

____I'm not yours

You don't have to

Oh no no

__no no

____no no

You're not mine.....
