Slipknot – Child of Burning Time Lyrics Video

Child of burning time
Child of burning time

My only consolation is all 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

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

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

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

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
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, lose it all today
