lyrics

This life has sucked you dry your an empty little cup
You spend every drudging moment trying to fill yourself up
A brilliant wildfire, waiting for someone to release it
But Infinity overflows the thoughts that think it
Shake the hand of unbridled freedom, now you’re a slave to passion
A never-ending circus of irrational actions
Martyr to your senses, marching into a sea of desire,
Knowing it may kill you, yet nonetheless inspired

Set yourself on fire
Set yourself on fire
Fire Fire
Fire Fire
Fiiiiiiiiiiirrrreeee
When there’s nothing left to burn
You have to set yourself on fire!

You may detest,
Say the ashes of your actions left you a misanthropic wreck
You may hide under your covers, and feel you failed the test
But let forest of your failures fuel that fire beneath your breast
Cause the black smoke will rise you, free you and revive you,
The burning of the firebird births a firebird anew,
A kerosene ablution, your both the shroven and the shriver
When there’s nothing left to burn you have to set your self on fire

Set yourself on fire
Set yourself on fire
Fire Fire
Fire Fire
Fiiiiiiiiiiirrrreeee
When there’s nothing left to burn
You have to set yourself on fire!
