Slipknot – Child of Burning Time

Child of Burning Time

[Intro]
Child of burning time
Child of burning time

[Verse 1]
My only consolation is lies
The apex of my consequence is dying here tonight
Winter hasn't ended, and it always looks like rain
I can't remember anything, anything
Inside the absolution, we succumb
And appetites are bittersweet, I think I'm going numb
A chance to give up Avarice has marked my one regret
The child of burning time is gone, he hasn't come back yet

[Bridge]
Oh…
Oh…

[Verse 2]
Before I tell my story, please consider who I am
I missed my window years ago, I'm doing all I can
A tragedy is commonplace, but in the end, they go away
My skin is still the only stain I'm left to wear in shame
I cut my name, into my heart, I'll tear it all apart

[Chorus]
I beg you, burn me away
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I saved
Burn me away
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today

[Refrain]
I'll burn away
I'll burn away
I'll burn away
I'll burn away

[Verse 3]
My isolation is my course
The effect it has on life itself is a cancer on its source
I rue the moments spent between the fetish and the flame
Until this war is over, I won't ever lose my rage
I cut my name, into my soul, I guess I'll never know

[Chorus]
I beg you, burn me away
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I saved
Burn me away
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today
Burn me away (burn me away!)
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I saved
Burn me away (burn me away!)
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all, lose it all today

[Guitar Solo]
