Home in the valley Home in the city Home isn't pretty Ain't no home for me
Home in the darkness Home on the highway Home isn't my way Home will never be
Burn out the day Burn out the night I can't see no reason to put up a fight I'm living for giving the devil his due
And I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
Time is the essence Time is the season Time ain't no reason Got no time to slow
Time everlasting Time to play b-sides Time ain't on my side Time I'll never know
Burn out the day Burn out the night I'm not the one to tell you what's wrong or what's right I've seen suns that were freezing and lives that were through
Well I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you I'm burning, I'm burning,…
