So we burn

She won’t listen

So we burn

This silence like sulfur

Leaks

And we crouch

In the fumes

In the fumes

In the fumes

We light a match to see

Then up in smoke

She won’t listen so we die

Or just go crazy

Drop off the deep end

And can hardly swim

This silence burns our ears

Raped by silence

Victims become victimizers

Fire burns

We die and kill

She won’t listen

So we’ll kill

When they come to take us

Then they burn us all

A family

For we must suffer

When none hear

The rush and roar

That consumes

And swallow the screams

No one listens

So we eat fire

We drink fire

We smell fire

We be fire
