Fire

Fire

Here I stand
You try to drain me of all my blood
Drain me of all my strength
But I feel the energy
Flow around
And I know
There's still a light in my eyes

And so I smile
Just because I'm not dead yet
Or is this what you would like me
To forget
When you debase the body with shame
You threaten me with flame
You've darkened my skies with your ash
Poison my Sun
And try to blind me with your gaudy sparkle
and flash

Am I mad
If I laugh to myself
Am I mad if I laugh
Crazed if I howl
For my lover
Or raise my arms
To greet a welcome breeze

Or if I smile
Just because I'm not dead yet
Or is this what you would like me
To forget
When you debase the body with shame
You threaten me with flame
You've darkened my skies with your ash
Poison my Sun
And try to blind me with your gaudy sparkle
and flash

Do you see the beauty
Of the coming night
Or only the death
Toward which you fly
Through the vision of a world
Falling down in ash
Do you even know
That you are dancing on someone else's back
Do you even know that you are dancing
Do you even know that you are

Side by side
With the wind at our feet
Dance out to the fire
Singing songs of five
Discordant choir
Come alive
And howl
