Inside This Volcano

It’s so hot inside this volcano
I’m wondering why I came
I guess it’s the red glow that drew me
Like a moth is drawn to a flame

But now that I’m here, I don’t like it
That lava is way too near
I’m sweating so much I feel dizzy
Is there poisonous air in here?

True, it’s neat I’m inside of a mountain
Liquid rock’s an amazing sight
But some things are way better in pictures
From this close I’m afraid I’ll ignite
