And I take you down to the burning ground
And you change me up and you turned it around
In the wind and rain Im gonna see you again
In the morning sun and when the day is done

And you take my hand and you walk with me
Sometimes it feels like eternity
And I turn the tide, I get back my pride
And I make you proud, wont you say it out loud?

When I take you down to the burning ground
To the burning ground, to the burning ground
To the burning ground, to the burning ground

And I take you down by the factory
And I show you like it has to be
And you understand how the work is done
And I pick up the sack in the midday sun

And I pull you through by the skin of your teeth
And I lift the veil, I see whats underneath
And you return to me and you sit on your throne
And you make me feel that Im not alone

And I take you down to the burning ground
To the burning ground, to the burning ground
To the burning ground

Hey man, whats that youre carrying?
Feels like lead, it weighs a ton
Lets see if we can dump it by the side of the hill
Hey wait up, why dont you dump it on the burning ground?

Dump it down there, yeah, man, dump the jute
Hey, man dump the jute on the burning ground
Dump the jute? Yeah, you know, dump the jute, dump the jute
On the burning ground, on the burning ground

And you make me think what its all about
Sometimes, I know, gonna work it out
And I watch you run in the crimson sun
Tear my shirt apart open up my heart

And I watch you run down on your bended knees
By the burnt out well, can you tell me please?
Between Heaven and Hell, wont you take me down?

To the burning ground, to the burning ground
To the burning ground, to the burning ground

And you fall and pray, when you hear that sound
As were walking back to the burial mound
And you shake your head and you turn it around
And you see the flames from the burning ground

And you get down on your knees and pray
And I catch my breath as were running away
And I take the jute and I throw him down

On the burning ground, on the burning ground
On the burning ground, its on the burning ground
