Pack the bag again, another wave goodbye
Another time zone, another sleepless night
She said "I don't want you leaving again"
But they've dug the hole in life: debts to be paid
Scars on the land and on the mind
Short term gains, what did you sacrifice?
Fuelling a fire that'll burn out long before it should
Eight hours from the place that he calls home
Doesn't see the kids; the first times or the love
She calls and says "I miss you being around"
He says "it'll be worth it in the end"
Draining the life, the earth and the man
It’s no way to live, there’s no one that can
Just fuelling a fire that'll burn out long before it should
