lyrics

Two years ago today
My house was filled with flames
I lost a family fortune
And the house where I was raised
I only left this phonograph
To remind you I'm ashamed
You can't expect to smell
Your family burn & ever feel the same.

I was lost and I have been ever since
Around my heart I built a barbed wire fence.
I was lost and have been since the day I left
This tragedy I kept has helped me lose,
My home, my family, & all my friends.

It's the call you never want to take
It's all the apathetic games they play
And so I built a wall inside myself
To hide my lonliness and shame
I only wish I could've been there
When her dress was just a blaze
I could've ran and brought the water back
And pulled her from the flames unscathed.

I was lost and I have been ever since
Around my heart I built a barbed wire fence.
I was lost and have been since the day I left
This tragedy I kept has helped me lose,
My home, my family, & all my friends.

All my friends, If I was lost
I know they'd seek me out.
& all my friends would put me out
If I was burning down.
