Fire ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #82

When we’ll go up in flames
Flicker in the moonlight
Staying on the outside
City burning in fires
We watched it burned and sighed

When we’ll go up in flames
We’re hunting silhouettes
Always feeling the warm
In the dark corners, too
Will there be some storm?

When we’ll go up in flames
We’ll stay where we are safe
Try to keep ourselves cool
Keep ourselves together
Try not to be such fool

When we’ll go up in flames
Sneak on the edge of dark
Smoking in total black
City in full chaos
Won’t be turning aback*
