“The Heart of a Phoenix”

Resisting the love
Crucifying the dove
Like the storm clouds above
I wage war with this tug
 
Dancing in flames
Sweating out the pain
Like the wheels on a train
I spin on towards insane

Breaking the yoke
Cutting the rope
Like the bird caged without hope
I burn these dreams up in smoke
 
Swallowing pride
Fighting fire inside
Like the Phoenix I’ll rise
My heart branded but alive
