Until The World Burns

This song was created for Game of Bands round 172 : "Elements Part 2 - Fire"

Lyrics:

The smoke in my blood,
it's all I know.
The world - is so unclean.
Am I the only,
one who sees it?
Sanitize with kerosene.

Don't expect to make me sweat,
I was born in heat-.

Engulfing.
Everything I see-.
Won't sleep.
Until the world is burning-.
Haunting.
That it's my normalcy,
but I can't sleep--^
(1) 'til it burns before me--!
(2) 'til it's cleansed before me--!

Ever since I was a child,
you engulfed me,
the way you dance so slow...
Red dress, red hot,
didn't stand a chance..
against your temperature-~.

I don't have too many regrets,
since all my shame's been burned away-,

Engulfing.
Everything I see-.
Won't sleep.
Until the world is burning-.
Haunting.
That it's my normalcy,
but I can't sleep--^
(1) 'til it burns before me--!
(2) 'til it's cleansed before me--!

Don't expect to make me sweat,
I was born in heat, forged in it-.
Don't listen to my therapists,
they'll get inside your brain~.
Always stuck on, "Why?"
instead of dousing it,
and it only fuels my need for flames...
---

Engulfing.
Everything I see-.
Won't sleep.
Until the world is burning-.
Haunting.
That it's my normalcy,
but I can't sleep--^
(1) 'til it burns before me--!
(2) 'til it's cleansed before me--!
[Exit]
