Looking Out For Love
Just Be Careful
When You Turn That Key
And Don't Turn
Don't Turn The Knob If
You Think It's Going To
Really Burn

Burning Your Hands
Are You Burning
On Your Own Front Door?
Yeah Burning My Hands
No I'm Not Playing
No I'm Not Joking
I Think Someone's
Trying To Settle A Score

Absolute Power
Can Lead To Absolute Betrayal
Now, I'm Not Laughing
But Be Careful
When You're Still A Fool
Well It's Still Me Here Trying
Trying To Help
Help You With Your Right Tool
Yes It's Just Me Who Is
Trying To Stay Cool
And Yet,
I'm Not Even Close To You

Do Your Dreams Always Work Out
Even In Another Time?
Why Don't You Just
Keep Drinking
Keep Drinking Your Own Pathetic Stale Wine

I'm Not Playing, I'm Not Shaking
With You Any More
I'm Not Going Down
Yeah I'm Not Going To Burn For Any Score
Haven't We Seen All This Before
Behind Your Door?
Yeah, Haven't We Seen It All Before

Now Look At Your Hands
Touch Your Face
Yeah Look At Your Own Eyes
Those Eyes Do Tell
Now Tell Me Who's Burning

I've Already Tried Cooling You Down
But Yours And Even My
Wishing Well Has Already
Gone Bone Dead Dry
Yeah That's Why You Haven't Heard
You Own
Alarm Bell

Now You're Burning
Yeah Now Burning
Burning In Your Empty Cell
Burning Yourself All The Way To Hell

666 Is Just A Number To Me
Some Choose It For This
Some Choose It For That
People Living In Reality
Already Know That Shit
Our People Don't Worry
Yeah We Just Laugh At Your Ignorance,
It's Just Your Own Deluded Epileptic Fit

No Worries
Yeah No Concerns About Little Fire Ants
Like You
But Maybe Only A Select Few
Yeah Maybe Some Of Those
Little Monkeys
Never See
Never Be Free

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
