Internal Flame

Chorus
Fire burning internally inside
Every time you look into my eyes
Crying tears only embers to the
Flame looking at the world as
They hit the pavement floor
Richie why are you crying for
There's so many things that you
Just can't quite ignore so many things
That we have to endure
People talking their slurs
You blink it becomes all but a blur

Verse 1:
Global warming brought that winter
Snow Texas becoming bitter cold
Just last week a kid fell to the
Snow the heart becoming heavy
As these stories begins to unfold
Senators taking trips overseas
When the worlds in crisis
Finding ourselves fighting Isis

Verse 2:
Taking the flaming torch and I'll
Ignite it because people don't
Know yet that we're all alone
We can't even shoot if anyone
Breaks into your homes that's
25 years to life death penalty
By the Axe 30 sentences to
The max you know I'm stating
The facts I carry heavy burdens
Upon my back until it cracks

Verse 3:
That's time you're not getting back
A stray bullet hit the room of a woman's
Home it hit her liver then when up to her
Heart when does all this violence cease
And the healing begins to start
All my life I heard that it'll get better
But I find the nation continuing to be
Pulled apart groceries are running dry
So many already died couldn't get
To the shopping carts in Knick of time
No water on the shelves
Dried up creeks tap's contaminated
That's just the revelations
Of Texas Legislations

Verse 4:
200 car pile up because people are not
Driving slow within the snow
Black ice upon the road not enough
Salt on the ice so many companies being
Sued at least 30 dead and hundreds
Wounded so much happened within a
Week I find myself in disbelief holding in
So much grief because I witnessed
The massacre life can be so unfair

Verse 5
It's hard not to go 'what if' but
If only I had the jaws of life
So I too can claw my way to that chunk
Of ice placing myself within their shoes
Since that night I hardly sleep
As that night plays on and repeats

Chorus
Fire burning internally inside
Every time you look into my eyes
Crying tears only embers to the
Flame looking at the world as
They hit the pavement floor
Richie why are you crying for
There's so many things that you
Just can't quite ignore so many things
That we have to endure
People talking their slurs
You blink it becomes all but a blur
