A heart of stone, a smoking gun
I can give you life, I can take it away

A heart of stone, a smoking gun
I'm working it out
Why'd you feel so underrated?
Why'd you feel so negated?

[Chorus]
Turning away from the light
Becoming adult
Turning into my soul
I wanted to bite not destroy
To feel her underneath
Turning into the light

She don't think straight
She's got such a dirty mind and it never ever stops
And you don't taste like her and you never ever will
And we don't read the papers, we don't read the news
And it's never enough, we will never be fooled

[Chorus]

And if you feel a little left behind
We'll wait for you on the other side

And if you feel a little left behind
We'll wait for you on the other side

I'm on fire
Cause you know I'm on fire when you come
Cause you know I'm on fire
Cause you know I'm on fire so stub me out

Cause I'm on fire
Cause I'm on fire
Cause I'm on fire
Cause I'm on fire
