about

This was never going to be one of the main songs on the album. It was only ever filler, a random demo that sort of fit in thematically that I decided to throw in to fill space. Not a big a deal, not a great song, and okay one that I wrote in five minutes. I’d probably find something to replace it with later.

lyrics

Is it something unforgivable
This thing that ends my life
Under star light and explosions
With my fingers on the light

I could pull the trigger
I could end this nightmare quick
Wash my hands mercy clean
Sink my teeth into this

If I could I'd light the match
If I'd the choice then I'd set light to the sky

Is it something that's unquenchable
The thirst we have for blood?
Cos we stained the whole world red with it
Like we stained our only sun

I could push the button
Watch the sky fall in
I could wash my hands mercy clean
sink my teeth into this
If I could I'd light the match
If I'd the choice then I'd set light to the sky

What would you say if you woke up to live as a slave?

If I could I'd light the match
If I'd the choice then I'd set light to the sky
And watch it all burn
