"Kill Your Fear"

"Into The Fire"

Mother teach me to walk again.
Milk and honey, so intoxicating.

I'm reunited.
Into the fire,
I am the spark.
Into the fire,
I yearn for comfort.

Open the doors that lead on in to Eden.
Don't want no cheap disguise.
I follow the signs marked back to the beginning.
No more compromise.

Free the water that carries me to the sea.
You I see as my security.

And into the fire,
I'm reunited.
Into the fire,
I am the spark.
Into the night,
I yearn for comfort.

I will stare at the sun until its light doesn't blind me.
I will walk into the fire until its heat doesn't burn me.
And I will feed the fire.
~ Sarah McLachlan (1992)

Fear and Pain are my only "higher powers," and I am slowly murdering the motherfuckers. I will have no power above myself.
