raining fire

from the depths, i'll try to explain
that this is just a different kind of pain
i tear my thoughts apart, shove the pieces down my throat
hiding the demeaning things that i have wrote  
but the words, they just wont go away
it seems this emptiness is here to stay
 
escape is my new desire
but it's raining, raining fire
the earth is closing
closing around me
escape is my only desire
but there's only one way out and it's raining, raining fire
 
this not feeling thing
is a new kind of pain
it stands in my way
blocking my escape
and all the while
i try to swallow, but my mouth fills with bile
polluted with the bitter taste of crumbling ashes, i try not to scream  
and now my demon has me
it's hands around my neck
like a vise....my soul shattering in the wreck
as i lay face down on the ground
i still can't bring myself to make a sound
as the fire within me wakes
manifesting from my own mistakes
my very essence explodes
through a series of encrypted codes
leaving me an empty shell
to fight my way through a new kind of hell
 
escape is my new desire
but it's raining, raining fire
the earth is closing
closing around me
escape is my only desire
but there's only one way out and it's raining, raining fire
