Tom MacDonald – Ashes Lyrics

Ashes by Tom MacDonald


It’s rock-n-roll to me, there’s no controlling me
I sold my soul and stole the gold from royalty
I’m locked and loaded until the motor overheat
I’ll rock the boat in seas I’m not supposed to be
The Holy Ghost is in my broken bones
And Heaven only knows what bein’ broke awoke in me
The homes of those who tried to slow my roll
And throw me to the wolves will turn up burnt and smolderin’
I fillin’ the coffins with everything that I wanted
And then I’ll drag them behind me so they will not be forgotten
I hit the bottle so often that when I did hit the bottom
It didn’t even hurt even a bit but now I proceed with caution
And I’ve been haunted by rotten bodies, the path that I’ve plotted
Been full of haters and demons, I burn the bridge when I cross it
I got a dollar in my pocket that I’m savin’ just in case
I get to where I’m headed and I still need change

I feel the ghost of rock-n-roll take hold of me
An overdose of I don’t care what you believe
So f--- ’em all, I’m Jimmy Page, I’m Kurt Cobain
I’m Rolling Stones, lay Guns N’ Roses across my grave
Ashes to ashes mama
Ashes to ashes papa

There’s blood and guts to me, it’s mud and rust to me
That type of feelin’ when you love destructively
It’s claws are stuck in me, it promise luxury
If I said I trust you, you are dumb for trustin’ me
Hate me publicly, or wait for company
Or pray to God your Devil never summons me
Either way you don’t have s--- to say
With all the Tom MacDonald, you exist because of me
I’m fuelin’ the fire with little beautiful liars
They burn the brightest and I pull out every tooth with the pliers
They get a funeral suitable for the winners that ruined
All the truth in my music, I took the food out the fryer
I’ve been hell and back without a burn, my boots made of iron
I keep a cooler full of booze ’cause I’m a juvenile tyrant
I never lose I get with Lucifer and he knows who I am
So when you meet him say I said “What up” there’s zero survivors

I feel the ghost of rock-n-roll take hold of me
An overdose of I don’t care what you believe
So f--- ’em all, I’m Jimmy Page, I’m Kurt Cobain
I’m Rolling Stones, lay Guns N’ Roses across my grave
Ashes to ashes mama
Ashes to ashes papa

Breakout bands, they want no revenge
‘Cause f--- I got plans
All I need is my fans
With the world in my hands
I’m burnin’ the people who said that I can’t
I’m burnin’ the churches that worship the damned
Then housin’ the holy wherever I stand

I feel the ghost of rock-n-roll take hold of me
An overdose of I don’t care what you believe
So f--- ’em all, I’m Jimmy Page, I’m Kurt Cobain
I’m Rolling Stones, lay Guns N’ Roses across my grave
Ashes to ashes mama
Ashes to ashes papa
