lyrics

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.
