Going Up In Flames

Spent hours by the fireplace
a den of ashes cold and grey
dust and darkness cracked and torn
took all my heat away

An ember slowly blossoms
a weak and tiny glow
A little light a little bit of hope
a way to something more

Ics fingers trembling
they reach for scars that torch old skin
onsuming all that’s dead and hurt
kindling fires deep within

It’s spinning fast around me
this whirlwind made of heat
From one small glow
a little light may grow
a hot and fiery flow

I’m going up in flames
I’m leaving you behind
Don’t dare to look behind me
cause I need to survive
I’m going up in flames

I’ll burn your memory to a cinder
put it where it belongs
I wish I could be kinder
but I need to be strong

Fire’s rushing through me
erasing every doubt
In due time I’ll reap what I have sowed
I’ll rise up from below

I’m going up in flames
I’m leaving you behind
Don’t dare to look behind me
cause I need to survive
I’m going up in flames

Shadows give way to fire
that burns the old remains
Everything old and dire
consumed by blazing flames
