It Hasn’t Even Been a Full Week

WE SET OUR WORLD ON FIRE

we set our world on fire
playing carelessly with flame
now we watch the burning pyre
knowing this was not a game

playing carelessly with flame
we ignited quite the blaze
knowing this was not a game
not a cure for our malaise

we ignited quite the blaze
thought we’d burn our discontent
not a cure for our malaise
this was never our intent

thought we’d burn our discontent
now we watch the burning pyre
this was never our intent
we set our world on fire
