The Sky is on fire

Cooley-Controlled-Burn6

Oblivious, this world,

Beautiful lies a-layering

It’s raining bullets, war is waging

Smile-stamped face so they cannot tell

The sky is on fire, the sky is on fire.

 

Deceitful, porcelain face,

Cracks of secrets, concealing

Battles of the heart, pieces need mending

Break a leg, you actor, so they cannot tell,

The sky is on fire, the sky is on fire.

 

The rose flower, asunder.

Slowly I crumble, all is not well,

Fighting a battle as I wander

But they cannot tell,

They see not my hell,

The sky is on fire

The sky is on fire.

 

Disconcerting, these voices.

Louder, the chaos so overwhelming

It’s a tug of war in my head ensuing,

Bottle it up, human, so they cannot tell,

The sky is on fire, the sky is on fire.
