about

Baptism By Fire is a song about becoming entangled in a drug binge dream state. Forcing a shift in comprehending what reality truly is, and maneuvering around it the best you can.

lyrics

Have we been here before
Cause there’s footsteps on the floor
And there’s a skeleton crawling
Man, I’m sinking, I’m sinking
Come on, leave me alone
Will you please leave me alone
With that sad voice on the phone
Just come and see me
Or don’t see me
Come on
Rest my heavy heart down slowly
Good god damn what she’s stolen from my soul
I’ll die alone
It’s been a long day
Working on my sincerity
So why why why
Am I takin' my time
All my precious time
When there’s a time bomb
Strapped to my side
Didn’t want there to be
I never wanted to be
So why am I takin' my time up
On these terrible things

Oh have we been here before
And I hear one knock on the door
And there’s a pelican staring
Man, I’m sinking
Come on, leave me alone
Will you please leave me alone
With that sad voice on the phone
Just come and see me
Or don’t see me
Come on
Rest my heavy heart down slowly
Good god damn with these drugs took from my soul
I’ll die alone
