LYRICS

We didn’t start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world’s been turning
We didn’t start the fire
But when we are gone
Will it still burn on, and on, and on, and on
We didn’t start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world’s been turning
We didn’t start the fire
No we didn’t light it
But we tried to fight it
We didn’t start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world’s been turning
We didn’t start the fire
No we didn’t light it
But we tried to fight it..

We can end the fire deep within us. It started a long while ago. No one started the fire, we brought it on as a choice for us to put it out. Why are we not ending the fire, only because we have got used to the fire. Turn on the water from your mind, allow your feelings to guide the flow of water to the fire. End it now…

Over escarpments
a prayer of wonderment
inestimable hearts
proclaim a
burning flame
minds own gethsemane
ashen faces
flushed with graces
eyes serenely ablaze
with emendation
to change the
remnants of love
that still remains
in the sobriety of pain.
