I listen to him roar
I hear him daily stomp his feet
Above me on his floor
He spews his venom on the world
No matter whom you are
He doesn’t care whom he burns
Or if he leaves a scar
For the dragon only knows one thing
He cares only for himself.
The raging dragon licks his wounds
and blames the passing world
for everything his flaming tongue
brings back on him:
For every charred ember,He does not see
For all the soot in his life,
For all the darkness he dwells in.
That he is the source
Of his own misery.
And the Dragon R-O-A-R-S!
