A Pleasure to Burn 03:58
Pleasure to Burn Walk with me beneath the orange-lit sky like Kerosene and the matchstick in your mind Do you mind, do you mind if I ask you about the moon? I've got time, I'm just seventeen, skipping like a loon And have you ever held a word more beautiful than birth? Through the fire soot and sear calling forth your very worth? Now in beauty could you yield your theocracy of fear? Talk with me I fear that I'm alone The hounds of hell, they haunt me where I go Are you near, are you near? I feel them closing in... I am here, I am here, in the sovereignty of skin. And I have held a word more beautiful than birth Through the fire, soot and sear calling forth my very worth. Now in beauty I will yield... this theocracy of fear.
