lyrics

There was no moon the night your brother crashed the car near Knox’s Dam
No drugs, no booze, just dumb black ice and minor scrapes and some whiplash
But your beautiful neck has been funny since then, though you had it fixed by Sibsi’s dad
I am here to protect you now;
I was not then and I wish I had

Now I’ll be your ambulance and your doctor
I’ll be your paramedic team
No need to telephone a hotline
You just need to telephone me

Me, me, me

You were just six when you were sent to the corner store all on your own
You had a list: milk, eggs and bread; you felt so grown-up two blocks from home
Then you froze as a man burst in with a knife to the throat of Mrs. Kim
With his hands in the cash he stared and he grinned and told you to forget about him

Now I’ll be your vigilante
I’ll be your police
No need to telephone a mountie
You just need to telephone me

Me, me, me

You fought a war when you were young against all things lame, dull and unfair
You were outnumbered and outgunned with blood on your boots and mud in your hair

I’ll be your rebel forces
Your guerillas and your mercenaries
You don’t need your military
Now that you have me

Me, me, me

The Burning Hell is the ongoing musical project of songwriter Mathias Kom and multi-instrumentalists Ariel Sharratt and Jake Nicoll, often including additional comrades and collaborators.

Their densely populated genre-shifting songs are packed with an abundance of literary, historical, cultural, and pop-cultural forebears, heroes and villains, subjects and objects, stories and hooks.
