burn, baby, burn
burn your disco inferno
down to the ground
dancing dancing
dancing the flaming fox-trot
spin me dip me in kerosene
fire burns so smooth
bright and high
high high enough to fall
crashing down with no parachute
no one to hold me break me
but i came up here alone
this was my sky-scraper to climb
i built a tower of rage
alone on my own
and i can come down
alone-i ain't no pussycat
i remember the colors' texture
flickering against the skyline's
geometric curves
i held the yellow in my hand
orange in my eyes
but the whitest-blue i saved for last.
dying fire,
i am at your mercymelted to my knees
in a city asleep in ashes-
ashes that burn hotter than its flames.
