Burned From Above (1976) by William Mylar Real Mylar

I dig down in my suitcase for a piece of paper
To write in a letter, "I'm doin' alright."
Because I can't sleep I lay awake and I write. 
My bleak tomorrow was your oversight.
You  could've had me if you'd just look.
I had the courage to give you but you just shook. 

So live your false freedoms. The truth you won't know
Unless your learn to free yourself  of the love deep in your soul
Just remember what I said, "I don't cry when I go."
A buzz I just heard says, "Leave it alone".
But I can't. I've been burned from above.

Well he was just a lad when he found out
That he would always be misunderstood.
And he had learned that people don't want to think
When they promise all along that they would.
So he tried in vain to play their game
And help them whenever he could.

So live your false freedoms. The truth you won't know
Unless your learn to free yourself  of the love deep in your soul
Just remember what I said, "I don't cry when I go."
A buzz I just heard says, "Leave it alone".
But I can't. I've been burned from above.

One day he sneezed up some lightning like old man Deboree.
He cried himself some tears that shouted, "Hey, look at me!"
For the first time since a child, he had the ability to see.
I can't. I'm burned from above.
No, I can't. I'm burned from above.

You took everything, but your energy was my tool.
I gave myself completely, but you took me for a fool.
Well, you just have to live with that, cause that's my golden rule.
You can't. You've been burned from above.
No, we can't. We're all burned from above.
