Achilles

It’s a hard road back home
Clocks are ticking in my bones
And the signs never read the same way twice
I’m on a ghost train, heading nowhere
Have to say I’ve never been there
But a change might be nice

Hey, Achilles, don’t you know me?
I’m the one who can take you down
Take you down
Take you down

I know you well, no use to fight
I saw you in the cold white light
And I can’t fake it anymore
There’s no salvation, just musical chairs
And I can get that anywhere
So just nod in the direction of the door

Hey, Achilles, don’t you know me?
I’m the one who can take you down
Take you down
Take you down
Hey, Achilles, don't you know me?
I’m the one who can take you down
Take you down
Take you down

You thought no one could touch you
You thought you could push me harder
I’m afraid I know too much now
You gave me too much power
If you want to see tomorrow
Stand back and let me walk out
I’m fire; I’ll burn you
I’m fire; I’ll burn you
I’m fire, gonna burn you down
