Bone of my blood
Flesh of mine wound
With rope tied around
In the fire I stood

It raged all around me
Oh the comfort I drew in chaos
It was all I could hope to be
All I had been for eons

Shh…turn it off…close your eyes
Shh…turn it off…close your eyes

Beast of my burden
Carrier of mine guilt
Started smaller than a verdin
Now look at what we built

I turned to the sky
The water overwhelming
In the flames I drowned
In the flood I was burning

Shh…let it go…close your eyes
Shh…let it go…close your eyes

Breath of my lungs
Fruit of mine mind
Suffer we as one
How cruel how unkind

My ropes came undone
I drew it in, I was breathing
They hailed, the battle won
Deep down, a fire still seething

Shh…free yourself…close your eyes
Shh…free yourself…close your eyes

-Chiseche
