By
when did the world turn to fire?
it used to be so cold,
so dead.
the only heat that ever came
was from the toys they built for war,
showering kisses of hot lead.
when did we scorch the sky?
it used to be, fight or die
and vicious winters chewed the cold
and our fingers turned to ice.
the only things to kiss were frozen lips
and our mouths filled with snow
in dead cold.
when did the world turn to fire?
