To all my readers: ado and many thanks for over a year to writing. I bow and say goodbye to the Matrix realm of fan fiction.

"Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and your greatest weakness."

I touch the fire
And it freezes me
I look into it and it's black
Why can't I feel?
My skin should crack and peel
I want the fire back

Now through the smoke
She calls to me
To make my way across the flame
To save the day
Or maybe melt away
I guess it's all the same

So I will
Walk through the fire
'Cause where else can I turn?
I will
Walk through the fire
And let it -

The torch I bear
Is scorching me
Buffy's laughing, I've no doubt
I hope she fries
I'm free if that bitch dies
I better help her out

'Cause she is
Drawn to the fire
Some people...

She will...

...never learn
And she will
Walk through the fire
And let it

Will this do a thing to change her?
Am I leaving Dawn in danger?
Is my Slayer too far gone to care?

What if Buffy can't defeat it?

Beady eyes is right, we're needed
Or we could just sit around and glare

We'll see it through
It's what we're always here to do
So we will
Walk through the fire

So one by one
They turn from me
I guess my friends can't face the cold

What can't we face...

But why I froze
Not one among them knows

...if we're together?

And never can be told

She came from the grave much graver

So one by one
They come to me

First, he'll kill her, then I'll save her

Everything is turning out so dark

The distant redness as their guide

Going through the motions

No, I'll save her, then I'll kill her

But what they find
Ain't what they had in mind

Walking through the part

I think this line's mostly filler

What's it gonna take to strike a spark?

It's what they have inside

These endless days

She will come...

Are finally ending in a blaze me

And we are
Caught in the fire
The point of no return
So we will
Walk through the fire
And let it
Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn
