peace through fire

crack my skin to fall from grace
lose the boy that once made haste
to sit back and enjoy a life
of nothing more than taking pride

while I'll throw myself to the lion
you'll enjoy your child
commit yourself to this peaceful lie
and you'll believe this is your line

I'd rather be torn apart
than fight half a war
seeking what I desire

until the last breath
lost to death
I'll find peace through fire.

It's not like you this one.
The rhymes, the style, the ebb and flow of light and shadow.

It looks like a song by a pop band.
NO offence intended.
just plain and dangerous honesty.
Damn feeling!
