[C]I thought the candle was gonna g[G]o out;
[Am]The wind was blowing and the doo[F]r was open,
[C]But the candle never went ou[G]t, n[Am]ever went o[F]ut.
[C]The wave found it's way to the sh[G]ore, I [Am]thought it was a ripple and noth[F]ing
[C]But the wave found it's way[G] all the way[Am] to the shore [F]
[G]Oh, I wanna[Am] burn thi[F]s hous[C]e. I [G]know, I[Am] wanna [F]jump in[G]to the fire;
[G]Oh, I've go[Am]t to tear [F]them [C]down;[G] the pinnac[Am]les of my [F]invisible e[C]mpire.
I know the gamble never works twice,
All the distractions at the table and the weighted dice
But the thrill of it feels so nice, you'd do it all again
But I look to the chips and lose,
I'm standing on the platform with my neck in the noose
And I know it's not my time, not my time.
Oh, I wanna burn this house. I know, I wanna jump into the fire;
Oh, I want to tear them down; the pinnacle of my invisible empire.
And if I do all the things I do, well I tell myself that I'm staying true
I'll never stop, you know I'll never stop, no I'll never think about it
Put an end to all this time, that I would spend with it on my mind
I never stopped, you know I never stop, you know I always wondered about
I wondered about the wonder.
Oh, I wear a rusting crown; I know this dynasty is falling.
The crowd shouts for another round; I see the ruin,
The spectacular, diamonds buried, icebergs, the minarets, and market-places
And signal fires of my invisible empire.
Oh, how long? Oh, how long? Oh, how long?
