Planet Arson

It started with a match
Just a slender, brittle flame
Just enough to scratch
Burning trails into your name
Then it grew into a fire
And consumed the world within
For it's fuel is my desire
And it's fury is my sin

[bridge]

The sparks are flying upward
As your tears are raining down
But they won't quench the fire
It's too late to stop me now

[chorus]
I'll torch the world
Bring the planet down to ash
I'll burn the earth
Till the sky itself turns black
At the end of days
I'll set the world ablaze
Now there's no turning back

You thought that I was broken
Yeah you thought that I was tame
But now your planet's smoking
Cause you can't escape the flame
As the world crumbles to embers
And what's left of us is torn
In my ashes just remember
That the phoenix is reborn

The sparks are flying upward
As your tears are raining down
But they won't quench the fire
It's too late to stop me now

I'll torch the world
Bring the planet down to ash
I'll burn the earth
Till the sky itself turns black
At the end of days
I'll set the world ablaze
Now there's no turning back

Wow, I really love this - there's so much depth to it, and yet it's totally satisfying even at the surface level. Great job!
