Arsonist's Lullabye Lyrics
anonymous Sep 30th 2018 report
The fire within humans is the holy spirit which is energy and is eternal. You then throw the ego in the mix which in a way may be someone's demons-we are then forced with few choices and how we react all depends on if we have our demons on a leash. We all have good and bad inside us in which we have to struggle with on a daily basis. Humans need to understand that it's ok to have negative feelings and by all means we should feel them but then let them go and move on. I think this song is telling us that somehow we see peace through all the ashes we have burned in our wake when actually we need to bring ourselves into 1 with mind, body, and soul working together instead of alone!
Arson is a crime of intentionally, deliberately and maliciously setting fire to certain things and an arsonist obviously is the one who commits it.
This song speaks about such arsonist's coming to terms with himself, of realizing he was stuck in a particular world and always will be. I highly believe that the fire is a metaphor for the world of violence and that the man in this song is someone who is attracted or drawn to it in a John Wick sort of way. He acknowledges that the attraction to violence will always be there. It cannot be destroyed, but it must always be subdued.
