Fall Down (The Blaze)

I want to touch
The Universe
(It starts at the end of my fingertips)
Present it with the gift and curse
It gave me without knowing-
(No one controls the blaze)

I want to hear
The Universe
(It cries at the start of my day)
Present it with the meaning and tedium
It gave me without warning-
(Everyone forgets the blaze)

I want to destroy
The Universe
(It hints at laziness in every detail)
Present it with the love and hopelessness
It gave me without consideration-
(Someone will start the blaze)
