lyrics

Burning Cactus

V2. 1 Like a burning cactus across a plain
You thought you could go so long without rain
But the drought of love has paid its toll
Because the wind has not let the clouds roll
And let fall some softness on your thorns
To wet with forgiveness and let you mourn
Then to move forward and not dry up
Before bitterness in you erupts

I see you burning up on the inside
And the heat is gonna bring you down
Vultures are circling overhead and you’re smoldering on the ground
But the clouds start to form
The lightning it strikes
Your vision is lost by the rain in your eyes
Put out that burning man
Or he’s gonna burn you down

VS. 2 You stand there imagining what you could shout
With your thorns into your enemy as you shoot them out
But he’s carrying on along his merry way
As you grow much more brittle drying up in your hate.
Don’t you see what’s flaring up in you is in your control
Acknowledge all the hurt and pain and please let it go
Before some sparks form from the match you want to cast
Ignite in your own hand a captive to the past

I see you burning up on the inside
And the heat is gonna bring you down
Vultures are circling overhead and you’re smoldering on the ground
But the clouds start to form
The lightning it strikes
Your vision is lost by the rain in your eyes
Put out that burning man
Or he’s gonna burn you down

Bridge:
The Fire’s flaming up with the poison that you pour
Inside yourself- it’s your own solo war
That spite won’t touch the one who crushed you
Your “Right to revenge” will only char you through and through


I see you burning up on the inside
And the heat is gonna bring you down
Vultures are circling overhead and you’re smoldering on the ground
But the clouds start to form
The lightning it strikes
Your vision is lost by the rain in your eyes
Put out that burning man
Or he’s gonna burn you down
