I am breathing fire

I am giving in

To each and every single urge

One more pious would call sin

I am breathing fire

Surrender is so sweet

I am denying all the truths

As I keep the liars close to me

I am breathing fire

I am drawing in the heat

I am burning so bright that

Darkness is a feat

I am breathing fire

There is no promise I won't break

I am stealing hearts and glasses

And leaving chaos in my wake

I am breathing fire

And the ashes I leave behind

Are all that's left of what you knew

I'm not the person that comes to mind

I am breathing fire

I am happiness exposed

What everybody good denies

I'm what you crave the most

I am breathing fire

It's really quite mundane

But you may tell it otherwise

If only to keep sane

I am breathing fire

my excuses are a lie

when all I really tell you is

"it seemed a good idea at the time"

I am breathing fire

When you say I'm going to hell

All I can do is smile and think

"Oh dear, you know me so well"

I am breathing fire

I am running free

I have escaped your holy bonds

Your good intentions can't catch me

I am breathing fire

It is burning through my soul

It's strange that though I feel such heat

I am perceived as cold

I am breathing fire

I am laughing in your face

I'm not buying all your arguments

Of "kindness wins the race"

I am breathing fire

I don't require aid

I don't care how well meaning it is

When you rain on my parade

I am breathing fire

And loving it to death

I'm drawing in my reason to live

With every scorching breath

I am breathing fire

Your wishes are not commands

Why should I care if I am selfish?

I'm tired of your demands

I am breathing fire

I can make you melt

Make you burn like me with just a touch

It's like nothing you've ever felt

I am breathing fire

No matter how you push

I'll never calm the blaze myself

I can't give up the rush

I am breathing fire

I will kill me, I am sure

So I'm living fast and hard enough

That I'll never want for more

I am breathing fire

Taking any dare

And though I know that I'll get burned

I just can't seem to care

I am breathing fire

And I know that it won't last

I'm having all the fun I can

Taking chances before they've passed

I am breathing fire

And when I stop to think

I'm pretty sure that this is why

Dragons are extinct.
