​Set Afire

This song is by Kiske-Somerville and appears on the album Kiske-Somerville (2010).

From the day we met
I could tell you were suspicious
Right down to the core
Of what I want, who I am
And what I'm not

Every page was blank
Wherein the answers sank
But I'm no open book to analyze
Or pick apart

Set fire to the vow you break
Liar, you're only escaping
Your fire was your own mistake
I'm charred, scarring
Set afire

When your eyes turned black
And the river ran malicious
In the blistered night
I was sound asleep
So I let my anchor down

Climbed onto your shores
Seeking shelter and warmth
Then the sirens screamed their
Jagged threats into space

Set fire to the vow you break
Liar, you're only escaping
Your fire was your own mistake
I'm charred, scarring
Set afire

Crawl over the starboard side
With your knife in your teethSink it deep this time and twist
A scarlet kiss

She'll never know what hit her
When the pirate has come
Sink it deep and move along
You're never wrong

Speak and make your peace

Carve your name in me
And practice skillfully
The seditious acts you can't control
So dry your eyes
I disbelieve your every word

Do you feel the shame
Set your silence aflame
Of the treason making me believe
I'm the one?

Set fire to the vow you break
Liar, you're only escaping
Your fire was your own mistake
I'm charred, scarring
Set afire
