Be The Flame

from Dystopian Days by Eddie Cohn



I miss the world we had
I miss the beauty before
Just maybe
We walked the earth with dinosaurs

Like a flame at the shore
Love’s weighted down
Mothers and sisters should rule and crown the world

Used to be the flame
We used to be the flame

China stole all the lives and drugs
And beat up minds in the psycho ward
You have to be there to find out what they have in store

We used to be the flame
Used to be the spark
It’s time to show them who’s in charge of it all

Testimony you try
To light the candle that shows
How much you wanted to end the world and start a war
She’s a single force
She’s got hate on her side
She wants to end the world

And be the flame
Won’t you be the flame
Start a war
Be the flame
Won’t you be the flame
Be the flame
Try to go
Be the flame
(Why’d you go)
Be the flame
Wont you be the flame
Be the flame
Why’d you go
Why’d you flee
Be the flame
Won’t you be the flame
