Lament for the Dragonchicken

The fire within me is the fire burning you.
There’s a fire in your heart and your other organs too.
You were a dragon, a chicken dragon,
You were a dragon now you’re a fire.

They’ve killed him.
I thought that dragonchickens weren’t rare,
But it turns out that they’re now extinct,
Dragons and chickens are each in surplus,
But it turns out that they rarely breed -
No dragons and chickens take it slow.

But now we’ve gone and killed the last one,
And we probably shouldn’t have done that.
(Sorry about that.)

He’s dead now.
We’re sorry that we lit the match,
And covered you in kindling,
And coated the kindling with gunpowder,
And covered that in petroleum,
And covered that in explosives,
And set fire to the surrounding forest,
And we probably shouldn’t have done that.
(We are shit dudes.)

Hey, look - there’s a fire burning you.
There’s a fire in your heart and your other organs too.
You were a dragon - a mighty dragon,
You were a dragon now you’re a fire.

Fire in your heart,
Fire tears you apart,
Torn apart by fire,
Fire in your brain,
Fire causing pain,
Pain caused by the fire.

You were a dragon.
I mean a god damn dragon.
You were a dragon.
A fuckin’ dragon.

Everybody now!
Drag drag drag drag draggy drag dragon ,
Draggy drag drag drag swaggy lagwagon,
You drag me into the fire.
