Fire in the Blood

He climbs to the cab in the hour before dawn.

He fires the rig and he's moving on

with a dark cargo he carries along.

Death rides with him and it rides in front.

There's a fire in his blood that can't be denied

burning him up on the inside.

How long before the marks of the curse start to show?

Mercy, mercy on his soul.

The woman he left in the room upstairs

counts the change and she strokes her hair.

She looks so good, lying warm and bare.

You couldn't tell as she's lying there,

there's a fire in her blood that can't be denied

burning her up on the inside.

How long before the marks of the curse start to show?

Mercy, mercy on her soul.

Slowly, so slowly, it takes a life

and some don't know they're already dying.

It's out of control and no one knows yet

how fast and far the flame's going to spread.

There's a fire in the blood that can't be denied

burning them up on the inside.

How long before the marks of the curse start to show?

Mercy, mercy on their souls.
