Backseat Arsonist - A Visionary Ash

This song was created for Game of Bands round 251 : "Randomly Generated IV"

Lyrics:


Oh,
Am I in control?
You lit a fire,
yet I'm still cold

I don't know why you drag me along, boss me around,
Bury my feet in the sand, kick me when I'm down,
Say you're right, I'm always wrong,
You immoral, I hold my tongue
Said we could be close forever,
But you lit a match when I just wanted to ruffle some feathers


Backseat driver but you won't listen,
Watch a building burn and crispen,

You have no regrets, I got a heavy conscience,
You got your head in the clouds, my guilt makes me dishonest,

You rope me in to tie a noose,
I need to pull away from you,

They say distance makes the heart grow fonder,
But never seeing you again makes me stronger


Oh,
don't you know,
I'm sick of this show,
Control me when I'm close,
No more

I gotta get away,
Build myself up from this sorry state,
Extinguish all your iniquitous flames,
Anger and fire I must tame,
Said we could be close forever,
But you lit a match when I just wanted to ruffle some feathers,


Backseat driver but you won't listen,
Watch a building burn and crispen,

You have no regrets, I got a heavy conscience,
You got your head in the clouds, my guilt makes me dishonest,

You rope me in to tie a noose,
I need to pull away from you,

They say distance makes the heart grow fonder,
But never seeing you again makes me stronger


I never knew,
Being alone could feel so good,
You burned my life down to ash,
But I can build something brand new,
Nothing can weigh me down,
I'm stronger not dragging you around,
Without you I can be me,
No more backseat arsonist,
Rise from the ashes as a visionary


Shackled no more,
I gained control,
Hate no more,
I get by on my own

I don't need you to listen,
I got my own life, to your dissatisfaction,
I do my best to right my wrongs,
I see the light of a new dawn,
You wanted to be close forever,
But you lit a match when I just wanted to ruffle some feathers


Backseat driver but you won't listen,
Watch a building burn and crispen,

You have no regrets, I got a heavy conscience,
You got your head in the clouds, my guilt makes me dishonest,

You rope me in to tie a noose,
I need to pull away from you,

They say distance makes the heart grow fonder,
But never seeing you again makes me stronger
