I am the sun that shines, I give you life,
the loving hands that hold you close and guide your sight.
I am the soft promise of a kiss,
I am the friend whom you’ll never have to miss.
I am the new venture for which your heart burns,
the feeling of being wanted, and the reward that you’ve earned.
I am the warm bed that comforts you in the night,
I am the soft security of the hallway light.
I am the buzz you feel in your fervent mind,
the careless whim in which you’re entwined.
I am the feeling of falling free,
the permission for you to be all you can be.
I am the burning hope in your soul,
the wind beneath your wings, your ultimate goal.
I am your thoughts, free as a bird,
Your safest place, those comforting words.
Crash it all,
crash it all down to earth.
I am the cut that stings,
I am the hour hand that strikes,
I am the frostbite in your fingers,
the vicious dog that bites.
I am the black moon in the black sky,
the shiver of panic they see in your eyes.
I am the knife in the dark, the dream that dies,
I am the muffled scream, the sickening lies.
I am the world of debt crashing down on your shoulders,
the angry blade that makes you feel colder.
I am destruction, famine and war,
I am the fracture that rots to the core.
I am the violent slash of the wrist,
I am the grip in which you struggle and twist.
I am the wound that cannot mend,
the final step at the cliff edge, the absolute end.
Burn it all,
burn it all away.
Repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat.
