lyrics

Pleasure to Burn

C C


C B A A
Walk with me beneath orange-lit

C B A A
skies

C B A A
like Kerosene and the matchstick in your

C B A A
mind

C B A A
Do you mind, do you mind if I ask you about the

C B A A
moon?

C B A
I've got time, I'm just seventeen, skipping like a

F#
loon

* A*
And have you ever held a word
E
more beautiful than birth?
A
Through the fire soot and sear
E
calling forth your very worth?
A
Now in beauty could you yield
C A E
your theocracy of fear?
**

Break
C C




C B A A
Talk with me I fear that I'm
C B A A
alone
C B A A
The hounds of hell, they haunt me where I
C B A A
go
C B A A
Are you near, are you near? I feel them closing
C B A A
in...
I am here, I am here, in the sovereignty of
F#
skin.

**
* A*
And I have held a word
E
more beautiful than birth
A
Through the fire, soot and sear
E
calling forth my very worth.

C A E
Now in beauty I will yield... this theocracy of fear.
D C A
