Favorite Quote:
"The poets leave hell and again behold the stars."

I think you know
That I’m lying when I smile
I hope you know
That I’m thinking all the while
I’m going to burn

My morbid dreams
My alternate reality
My half baked
Sickness caked
Backup plan
I’m going to burn

Because my life has already washed away
I’ve already put my future aside
And gotten off the ride
I’m going to burn

This world is full of options
But it only has one for me
To take to the shadows
And whispers of the past
I’m going to burn

Please let go of my hand
Let me slip into the sand
My fate was predetermined
My soul was set on this
Since I left the cocoon
I’m going to burn

Yes, you heard
I’m going to burn, burn, and burn away
Take my memory
And let it burn with me
Slowly, slowly burn with me
I’m going to burn
