Flames Rising

() = second voice, fainter but still distinct (like the voice of the inner self)
120 BPM (or 96BPM, I haven't decided which I like better)
industrial/trance w/organ and cello or viola undertones and heavy electric bass
Key of D Minor

Flames Rising
Spoken *woman's voice, whiskey soft whisper*:
What are you afraid of?

Verse:
Fading thoughts, never found,
shadows call (haunting sounds)
taunting (screaming) tortured (dreaming)
Raze it down (to the ground)

Clutching at my stolen soul
life spinning (out of control)
falling (burning) trapped (turning)
Strike a match (no more cold)

Chorus:
I'm building a pyre
(flames rising higher)
watching the world die
(a secret desire)
I'll scorch the sky
(writhing in my fire)

Verse:
Echoes twisting in my mind
I'm leaving (you all behind)
slipping (mumbling) sleeping (stumbling)
Being you (left me blind)

Chorus:
I'm building a pyre
(flames rising higher)
watching the world die
(a secret desire)
I'll scorch the sky
(dancing in my fire)

Spoken over bridge *woman's voice*:
What are you *fades* (build a pyre)
What *fades* (flames rising higher)
What are you afraid of?

(in my fire)

Verse:
Where shades in twilight tell
Spectres smile (and demons dwell)
Thunder (forming) lightning (storming)
Reigns unfettered (in my hell)

When did my reality slip
When did I (lose my grip)
Chasing (grasping) breathless (gasping)
smoke on the air (blood on my lips)

Chorus:
I'm building a pyre
(flames rising higher)
watching the world die
(my only desire)
I'll scorch the sky
(writhing in your fire)

My only desire
