Track Name: Matchstick
Strike of the lightning
Strike of a chord
Strikes me so funny
When caution’s ignored
Strike a hard surface
And the head makes a spark
Rapid combustion
That drives back the dark

Matchstick, tell no one
I am undone
Armor burned away
Free to betray
Friction of matchstick
Friction in clouds
Thunder and lightning
And screaming of crowds

Play on performance
Play over time
Play on emotions
Like whiskey and wine
Play simulation
A pale effigy
A hot burning star
Where your eye used to be

Matchstick, tell no one
I am undone
Armor burned away
Free to betray
Friction of matchstick
Friction in clouds
Thunder and lightning
And screaming of crowds

Burn like a sinner
Burn like a fool
Burn like a candle
That melts in a pool
Burn like a bushfire
Consume hearth and home
Burn off redemption
At last you’re alone

Matchstick, tell no one
I am undone
Armor burned away
Free to betray
Friction of matchstick
Friction in clouds
Thunder and lightning
And screaming of...

Matchstick, tell no one
I am undone
Armor burned away
Free to betray
Friction of matchstick
Friction in clouds
Thunder and lightning
And screaming of crowds
