Fire Line – Billy Strings Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It’s a careless wind that carries me across the great divide
From the wretched underworld to the place where fear resides
Behind the line you hold, you can only hold so long
When you see my forked tongue and you hear my twisted song

[Verse 2]
My sign is the fire line, uncontrolled
My bitter ruthlessness is a beacon to behold
Like cancer growin’, someday to die
Where the water’s flowin’, I’m gonna drain the river dry

[Chorus]
‘Cause it’s a poison dream
Keeps me runnin’ through the night
I’ll take it all, and then some more
By the dawnin’ of the sickly mornin’ light

[Verse 3]
Burn through the midnight oil and the bridges I can’t cross
Somehow, I’ll find myself in everything you’ve lost
We’ve seen it all before, but it comes as no surprise
Just like reflections of the fire in your eyes

[Chorus]
It’s a poison dream
Keeps me runnin’ through the night
I’ll take it all, and then some more
By the dawnin’ of the sickly mornin’ light

[Verse 4]
And when the work is done and the Devil’s called his time
You’ll feel a sterile breeze that blows through ashen pine
And you may ask yourself, “Where did the endgame lie?”
The question I might ask if I could stop to wonder why

[Chorus]
It’s a poison dream
Keeps me runnin’ through the night
I’ll take it all, and then some more
By the dawnin’ of the sickly mornin’ light
It’s a poison dream
Keeps me runnin’ through the night
I’ll take it all, and then some more
By the dawnin’ of the sickly mornin’ light
