Living In The Fire

1992




You live in the fire.
It comes for you...
It seeks you out.
You... who would be perfect...
Unaffected by man
Unadulterated by the likes of woman
The fire comes for you.

You can have no real companion.
You are alone.
You yourself are the flame
That waves in the wind...
That hungers...
That consumes...
That conquers.

You burn...
You light...
You shine...
You have power to overcome all things
Yet are much consumed and beset.
But you are one like a prophet
Who sings...
Who stands...
Who lives and will die
In defense of your flame.

You stand alone
But you shine
You shine
Oh, yes, you shine!
