Consumed by fair…


Let yourself fly

As the world slowly dies
Consumed by fire
All I know is desire
To know if I did was right….

If my life’s choice was good enough
To slowly dim the fire
With the melody of a life’s journey
That began so long ago….

As I stay here
Observing how little we have left
I look to you…
Up in the sky…
Wondering if I could so something more
With what you gave me
In the Genesis
Where music and life ensued

In a cage they placed me
In a cage I stood
Until they opened it up
And spread my wings I did so
And shared my light with everybody that observed
Thinking of you…
In every step of the way….

With that deathly hallow
I unfolded
Receiving him like a lost friend
Be still my heart
I’m coming towards you…
With that minor chord in C minor
Slowly dying …
As I step outside
And fill my valor…
