Anthems

Every now and then, I've posted a mention of some song that just lights me up for some reason.

This is another one. Something about the power behind it. It's one of those songs that sneaks up on you...eight bars of quiet simplicity, and then BAM, it hits like a wave. Good pervasive undertones, nice counterpoint on the bass drum, deep guitar line; one of those songs that is best heard at extreme volumes.

Lyrics: Time To Burn, by The Rasmus

Come on
Fear of the dark tears me apart
Won't leave me alone and time keeps running out

Just one more life, I'm so sick and tired
Of singing the blues, I should turn my life around
Come on

Tell me why do I feel this way
All my life I've been standing on the borderline
Too many bridges burned
Too many lies I've heard
I had life but I can't go back
I can't do that, it will never be the same again
And I know I don't
Have any time to burn
Come on

They follow me home, disturbing my sleep
But I'll find a place, place where they cannot find me
Maybe I'm lost, and maybe I'm scared
But too many times I've closed the doors behind me

Tell me why do I feel this way
All my life I've been standing on the borderline
Too many bridges burned
Too many lies I've heard
I had life but I can't go back
I can't do that, it will never be the same again
And I know I don't
Have any time to burn

Leave it all behind
Cross the borderline
Face the truth, don't have any time to
Have any time to burn

Tell me why do I feel this way
All my life I've been standing on the borderline
Too many bridges burned
Too many lies I've heard
I had life but I can't go back
I can't do that, it will never be the same again
And I know I don't
Have any time to burn

Tell me why do I feel this way
All my life I've been standing on the borderline
Too many bridges burned
Too many lies I've heard
I had life but I can't go back
I can't do that, it will never be the same again
And I know I don't
Have any time to
Have any time to burn
Come on
