"My Burning" as written by and Phillip Whitman Elvrum....
Flame upon Flame upon Flame
Reaching out to wrap around
My reaching arm
That's how life got to be among my friends

I wanted her so bad
I waited around in a burning down house
Hoping for phone calls

Totally scalding and scarred
I woke up in a pile of ash

Grave beyond Grave beyond Grave
Stretching out to horizons
On all sides
That's how life got to be among my friends
Dead or alive I buried them all

I wanted her so bad
As revenge for my burning I burned the whole world
And was warm for a little while

    Flame upon flame upon flame
    Reaching out to wrap around my reaching arm
    That's how life got to be among my friends

    I wanted her so bad
    I waited 'round in a burning-down house
    Hoping for phone calls
    Totally scalded and scarred
    I woke up in a pile of ash

    Grave beyond grave beyond grave
    Stretching out to horizons on all sides
    That's how life got to be among my friends
    Dead or alive I buried them all

    I wanted her so bad
    As revenge for my burning I burned the whole world

    *Note: stanzas/line breaks ambiguous
    And was warm for a little while
