If my body was broken open and you could look inside
Would you only find flesh
Just the useless parts of an obsolete machine
Would there be any sign of life
Or would you only find death
Would there be any evidence of a human soul trying to escape
If a flame once burned within this shell
Set me on fire one last time
Is there a clear division of soul and spirit marrow and joint
Can the human body still give you glory even in death
May the ashes tell the story of what work was done within
May my soul pause to witness as this body goes up in flame
Set me on fire

    General CommentI love this song! The ending is SO AWESOME.

    Obviously this song is talking about what is inside a person (not literally, of course). Do they shine forth with life from inside, or death? If you cracked that person inside, what would they look like? Would it be full of life or decay? Very cool premise!
