The Lyrics

"Fawkes is a phoenix, Harry. Phoenixes burst into flame when it is time for them to die and are reborn from the ashes." - Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore.
Though my life's been very long
Never want to douse my flame
It's not as if I could, because
'Twould reignite in spa-ades

Long-lasting
Hist'ry keeps on passing
I'm a phoenix, fun'ral pyre'sFrance
My life re-lighter
Said I'm a phoenix, bird on fire
Quick respawn timer

Lost count of the number of lives
I've lived, been a lo-ot, man
Each with it's o-own friends I-I've lost
I try not to ge-et sad now

Forgotten
When I was born, sod it
I'm a phoenix, can't expire
Age still gets higher
Well, as a phoenix, kinda tired
Bein' on fire

Phoenix

I'm pond'rin'
How long I've been wand'rin'
I'm a phoenix, flyin' higher
Consumed in fire
No emo phoenix, I'm just findin'
These thoughts enlight'nin'

Don't think the cycle will stop
If it did, that would be lame
No longer would people look up
"A phoenix! What the he-ey? Wow!"

Wait, what is
That burnin' smell? Got it
I'm a phoenix, I know fire's
My endin' timer
Well, newborn phoenix, feelin' lighter
So I'll fly higher

Phoenix, wreathed in fla-ames

I feel so light-hearted
New life has been started
Old baggage departed
Train of thought forgotten
Who cares, it was borin'
Can't fly while I'm snorin'
New flight route, I'm plottin'

"A phoenix is a majestic and magical bird. While it appears healthy and happy most of the time, every so often it must renew itself by shedding all of its feathers and bursting into flame. Rather melodramatic, if you ask me. It then rises from the ashes, fresh as a daisy. All just a normal part of the life cycle of a phoenix." - Princess Celestia
