lyrics

They build up a house just to tear down a wall and sometimes they watch it fall, watch it fall. Somewhere deep I know they’re gonna lose it in the end. It’s all a big distraction played like a bitter friend.

The fires burning red it’s fed by flames from deep below and sometimes they watch it grow, watch it grow. Well there just ain’t no way it’s gonna burn itself out, being fueled by resentment and fanned by constant doubt.

You can’t play with anger, no. Cause you’re gonna get hurt. You have to learn to let it go and bury it in the earth. Bury it deep in the earth.

The past will always haunt you if you cling tight with your hands and play old scenes over and over again. If change is gonna happen, you have to give a little time. Staying patient in knowing that the past is all behind.

You can’t play with anger, no. Cause you’re gonna get hurt. You have to learn to let it go and bury it in the earth. Bury it deep in the earth.
