I Turn My Back to the Fading Flame

I try to stay strong

I do the best I can

But I am, after all

Just a flesh and blood man.

The years have gone by

Pages turning in my life’s book

Each chapter has the same ending

No love caught on my well baited hook.

The flame is dying, dying inside of me

And I don’t know if i want to die out

No one else gives a damn about it

Of this I have no lingering doubt.

Fuck love and its promise of salvation

Fuck it all to a hot, damning hell

I am going to live on well without it

Let the hope of it fall down a bottomless well.

The flame is dying, dying inside of me

And I will do nothing to slow its demise

I’m done dreaming of a fire renewed

I’m tired of all of tormenting inner lies.

Goodbye to you the fading flame

I’m turning my back on you for good

And I feel no shame, no no shame.
