My hearth is warm this evening and safe thanks to a new fire screen from my family:)

LARRY AND HIS FLASK - "Log, Hearth And Ash"

There are others in this house, I hear them calling from the outer rooms
Log, hearth and ash under stale kerosene fumes
Footsteps in the saddening snow lead me farther from this place
Second chair drums keeping swaggering pace

But there are few who know where I'm going
And few who know where I've been
Not again

I've burned my desire, placed it upon the pyre
Seen the floors cave in and our hearts swell within
Turned water into piss, felt sodden and soiled from a wretched kiss
Filled an ocean with tears, all within just 27 years

Spare me the compassion that other men might show
All has been lost in the harvest moon glow
With hateful embers in my chest, I'll go wandering through the night
With godspeed I'll travel downward hence the light

But there are few who know where I'm going
And few who know where I've been
Not again

I've burned my desire, placed it upon the pyre
Seen the floors cave in and our hearts swell within
Turned water into piss, felt sodden and soiled from a wretched kiss
Filled an ocean with tears, all within just 27 years

The pages of my time-worn life, written in blood
The skin will peel, the wounds won't heal
Awaiting the flood

I've burned my desire, placed it upon the pyre
Seen the floors cave in and our hearts swell within
Turned water into piss, felt sodden and soiled from a wretched kiss
Filled an ocean with tears, all within just 27 years
