Burn for this

Bury me hastely no sunshine for me
Love lost im hurting im to blind to see
The shame of this deed is to heavy to hold
Throw me to the wolves im burdened and old
  Surely ill burn for this 
  Surely ill burn for this
Soaked in this guilt like wet clothes on my soul
Surely burning for all the lies that ive told
Hello old friend i welcome your blanket of flames 
Your dark black eyes and your numerous names
  Surely ill burn for this
  Surely ill burn for this
Ive lost again and my fates in your hands
Your words like hammers smash my heart into sand
Broken and ill from this life of sin
As you look down at my end with a *****eating grin
  Surely ill burn for this
  Surely ill burn for this
I cry out god save me it does me no good 
Hes never there when you think that he should
For i am a man alone with temptation
Appetite for the wicked a deadly sensation
  Surely ill burn for this 
  Surely ill burn for this

    I loved the imagery. Particularly the line, "throw me to the wolves . . ." Wow. Broken and ill . . . Then you followed up by making me chuckle with, "he's never there . . ." Nice one. I enjoyed this.
