Well I walked outside on the earth that remains And let the greedy crows pick at my brain With forgiveness and gratitude for their primitive ways And with a thought lingering on the break of day

Even the palest light lingers in the mind Alluring, warm, radiantForever glowing, calling. Until our fragile consciousness is broken-And then taken. Drawn in too close, we burn

Through the years my heart had been stifled The childhood songbird lost its voice And the feathers of its wings were plucked Until all that was left was withered
I used to shine bright, I was warm and comfortable. I was hopeful. I loved myself.   But over time I began to falter. I slowly began to dim, I began to turn to black.

crackling amber flame, consuming all that it can reach. tears of wax bubble down the sides, heat radiating from a lonely source. the wick curling in withering pain,

A cumbersome, catatonic existence can burn at my handsand I'll keep the torch with me, an old friend caught between young palms,ash and emotion make me stand:

Don't let it go Fight the urge to die Always needing more, Reaching and fighting for more Let it burn Don't let it go Fight the urge to die
