Burning Peace - Lyrics by Vert

Burning peace like wilted flowersblowing winds turn the hours
DEATH by BREATH you smell the flames smokedark shadows pass over
It's all burning away awaypeace it falls away away todaylove turns to lust in your eyesyou fall into your graveto block away God's skysa punished soul still held to its liesdiesburning burning peace away away today
