Dreamless dorm ticking clock
I walk away from the soundless room
Windless night moonlight melts
My ghostly shadow to the lukewarm gloom

Nightly dance of bleeding swords
Reminds me that I still live

I will burn my dread
I once ran away from the god of fear
And he chained me to despair

Burn my dread
I will break the chain
And run till I see the sunlight again

I'll lift my face and run to the sunlight

Voiceless town tapping feet
I clench my fists in pockets tight
Far in mist a tower awaits
Like a merciless tomb devouring moonlight

Clockwork maze end unknown
In frozen time a staircase stands
Shadows crawl on bloodstain floor
I rush straight ahead with a sword in hands

Cold touch of my trembling gun
I close my eyes to hear you breathe

(Burn my dread
Burn my dread)

I will burn my dread
This time I'll grapple down that god of fear
And throw him into hell's fire

Burn my dread
I'll shrug my pain
And run till I see the sunlight again

Oh I will run burning all regret and dread
And I will face the sun with pride of the living

I will -
Burn my dread
(Yeah, Gonna burn your dread, Gonna burn your dread yes)
Burn my dread
(Whatever it takes, Uh, Yeah)
Burn my dread
(No doubt, Gotta take it out like this y'all, Uh uh)
Burn my dread
(One time for the mind)
Ay yo
(Drop - like - this)

There's no man's land
No man ever survived
Invisible hands are
Behind you just now
If you ever win that
Race against rage then
You'll be king 'cuz
It's no man's land
(For real)

The mask is in heavy rain
Ultimately slain
Make shadows slave
What we've done is in vain
Carrying AK-47, 24/7
But you've gotta live it persecuted by heaven

Comes from the direction, no - indication
You've got to, to let it move first
Let it out, let it down
Let it inside, let loose
Let 'em letting damn depressed -
Let's get it up

Then what'cha gotta do is -
Drop the hammer down
Drop rhyme, drop hammer
Digging like a labor

You've got blood all over,
Ash all over,
Spit it out, son, game's over

(Burn my dread)
Tear up your fear,
The end is coming near,
Spit it out like a spear,
I'll burn your dread
(Burn my dread)
No soul, robust
All dust, we bust
Justice to the man with no life

(Burn my dread)
Tear up your fear,
The end is coming near,
Spit it out like a spear,
I'll burn your dread

(Burn my dread)
No soul, robust
All dust, we bust

Justice to the man with no life


Persona 3 Reincarnation - Burn My Dread -Last Battle-

Last Battle "Reincarnation" version

(Burn my dread x2)
Got your bulletproof...
(burn my dread x2)
... vest?
(Burn my dread x5)

Fear not, jump in the fire
Got to burn the dread
Let my soul aspire
To a higher place
In this gaia case
No time to waste
Never close this case, man

Whatever you do, it's always gonna come back
So living by the gun's gonna get the gun clap
I ain't giving in,
Hell no, fuck that
If you got a problem,
Then stand up and say "what?"

Man's gotta do, you know
What a man's gotta do for life
The battle, yeah
Got a little robust since we first met
'Cause I have yet to put my fist down

It ain't easy, but never show my weakness
No way out of this, so you better seize it
Deep breath, talk to Jesus, pray to God
Still make my own way -
And I preach this

(Burn my dread x9)

I am the front man who used to be the nicest
Making my own rules, apply them for their guidance
Only top deuce in the game knows how to fight this
The fear of life, many choose to run away from it

On the straightaway, they get caught up
Grabbed - thrown down - smashed up
I'm afraid of what's to come
At the same time afraid of what I've become

No way out of this, so drop the bomb
Trace my trails and follow and that's done
One, two, three
And let me pop this right here and become number one

I may dictate but you know the shit's great
cause I think straight but my rhyme's half-baked
Know that sometimes you just gotta let it go
To the flow, to town on the microphone

(Burn my dread x9)
