These flashbacks attach then react,
Chemical duet, stacks facts in a flask,
Mixed & stirred to the point of no return,
Licked and burned, swallow what you yearned.
Believe in what you earn, igniting your inner sire
Degrees turn higher, seeing red with wildfire,
Trees burn lighter while nights on the spire,
Leaves learn to admire the flames of a fire,
