lyrics

You were burning up, weren't you?
I saw the light of flames
Licking at the back of your pupils
Smoke pouring from your nostrils
Bright glow in your throat

I used to wonder how you could be strong enough to contain such a thing.
But I didn't know that it would slowly sever the connectors
that kept ya tethered to truth,
That the receptors that would tell you
things were moving too fast were being reduced to ash
You weren't built to restrain that sort of passion

You meant to keep this private
But it was just a matter of time
Before it would find its way
Through your lips to that girl you kissed,
She just needed a spark to start
You both tried to hide it but you cant keep firecrackers quiet
Even children don't play with flames.

I already knew how it would end.
The next time I saw you
Your walls had burned down
Eyes hollow
Charred lips
Coughing clouds of soot
Earthquakes of hate shook you
Continents crumbling
Trying to fault her, running away.

I don't mean to say so in such a sharp way,
But you got what you paid for, Michael
Next time, I hope you don't ignore the smoke signs.
