A fire in the attic is an expression I heard in a song. At the time that i listened to this song, I had a ton going on in my life, lots of stress, I interpreted this lyric into feeling like the fire was my stress and the attic was my head. There is always something chaotic and serene about fire, it can destroy, sure, but it can also cleanse. Thus the look on the girls face is calm, a calm through the chaos makes the chaos calm.
