The Burning Song

Read it as if you rap

It’s all getting pretty crazy
It started making me dizzy
I keep hearing every then & now
I did something bad & very wrong
Even though we agreed upon
That I’ll be cool & calm
But I failed to follow
I was supposed to swallow
Irritation & frustration
Dissertation on relation
Confrontation & aggression
Patterns taking over
I’m losing the ground

Seems I’ve gone crazy
So now here I’m again
To take the blame
And a pinchful of shame
Facing the consequences
Of the sequences of mishaps
Perhaps I am the only one
Who’s all over the place
But I simply can’t stand
In one by one space
It seems I’m that crowd
Suffocated & passing out

I hear you loud & clear
You tell me I’m getting there
Where I don’t really care
Don’t even give a damn
But you don’t understand
I can’t always be tamed
Look first in the mirror
Before you even quiver

Now it’s burning high
There’s hue & cry
Emotions of rage & fear
You’re getting ready to disappear
You see me now so tall
It seems I’m changing my form
I’m this scary dragon size
Spitting fire & murder eyes
Just want you to hear me out
So I scream at you pretty loud
But the shield you’ve put on
No, you can’t hear me at all
In your eyes I’m this bloody form
But in reality I’m simply torn

You’ve been trying to tell me
I am the only one freezing
I need desperate upgrading
Coz I’m that psychopath
Losing the only true path
The person you want me to be
The new version of me
My new design won’t be mean
I might come out pretty clean
Would take the toughest hit
And some other sorts of shit
But it can’t be just me
It is the way you see
Feel the things going with me
Don’t shut the doors so rapidly

Now try to hear me out
Gonna speak a bit loud
Enough of dissing
Saying dis-dat & hissing
I might be completely wrong
But who’s always spot on
So let’s start this all over
Let’s not use no cover
You & I are this loving pair
Sometimes covered in many layers
Perhaps marinated in deep pain
But it’s just a superficial coat
We aren’t no shadow ghosts

There’s always the darker side
But look at the beautiful sight
The intense radiant light
The blue & clear sky
If I’m the one with fire
Be the water on me
If you’re that very storm
I’ll come to you with peace
Let’s be naked & true
Remove the layers & the glue
But one thing is crystal clear
If I’m this heart
Then you’ll always be the beat
So let’s start all over my dear
Coz I’m you
And you’re me
