The scream’s the same
Paint it all down with fire
How long ‘til I forget the name
Just paint it all down with fire
I face my face, colored twice…
Composed and poignant
As bad as I can be
Pieced together so tragically
Blood soaks the sleeve
Tell-tale and informant
Paint it all down with fire
Just paint it all down with fire
Mirror glance…a second hit at
When eyes meet, person and reflection
No longer nostalgic for whom we use to be
We have a bullet for that desire
Silver laughs as we become forgotten
Skin and confrontation
We’ve come to kill that desire
No looking back…flesh of the rumour
Paint it all down with fire
Leave no trace…murder of portrait 
At the end we trade bullets for the fire
At the end we are killed by that desire

    This is fan-fucking-tastic. Every line is raw and real and it builds into the culmination of a brilliant end. Totally amazed, I love this.
