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,…
