Arsonist’s Lullaby

  
“When I was a child I heard voices… Some would sing and some would scream

You soon find you have few choices… I learned the voices died with me

When I was a child I’d sit for hours… Staring into open flames

Something in it had a power… Could barely tear my eyes away.
All you have is you fire… And the place you need to reach

Don’t you ever tame your demons… But always keep them on a leash.” 

  

“When I was 16 my senses fooled me… Thought gasoline was on my clothes

I knew something would always rule me… I knew this sin was mine alone. 


All you have is your fire… And the place you need to reach

Don’t you ever tame your demons… But always keep them on a leash.” 

  

“When I was a man I thought it ended… Well, I knew love’s perfect ache

But my peace has always depended… On all the ashes in my wake. 

All you have is your fire… And the place you need to reach

Don’t you ever tame your demons… But always keep them on a leash.”
