lyrics

I will tear the pages
From this book of blood
Release them to the flame
Release them to the flood
I will tear the pages
From this book of pain
Release them to the storm
Release them to the rain

Flame of light within me
Flashing into sight
Flame of light within me
Burn the book tonight
Flame of light within me
Incinerate and scorch
Flame of light within me
Put it to the torch

All the words that fill me
The knives inside my head
Coloring all I see
Tearing me to shreds
The war I’m always fighting
All I’ve ever known
The book that I’ve been writing
Graven into bone

(2x)Flame of light within me

The curse that I have carried
Too heavy now with age
Should have long been buried
Banished from the stage
I will pull the language
Darkening my hours
I will end the damage
I will destroy its power

Flame of light within me
Flashing into sight
Flame of light within me
Burn the book tonight
Flame of light within me
Flashing into sight
Ignite the words that plague me
Burn the book tonight
Flame of light within me
Incinerate and scorch
Wither chains that bind me
Put them to the torch
Flame of light within me
Burn the book tonight
Flame of light within me
Give it to the light
