Burning Through The Night

Let me go, let me go, let me go now
I am young and growing older,
deaf and dumb and
my heart is ever colder
and the night is dark, and deepening,
so let me go, let me go, let me
burn through this town.
Let the fire reach the heavens,
Don’t you dare touch that dial-
let the heat warm your faces,
let the flames lick your smile
let me burn it all down.
I am the ember and the flicker,
the roar and the smoke,
I will consume all I can and
beat the dark away,
and when you see what the night was covering-
You will hurt for the darkness,
you will yearn for night,
and pray.
