lyrics

------------------------
Our fire is the same
Our fire is the same
All fire is the same
The fire is the same.

The Leaves no longer sheltering us from the heat and rain,
lie all around turning brown waiting to live again.

And our fire is the same.

These stones we throw will never burn but together they may spark,
So I'll place my anger in your hands and let's see what we can start.

Cause our fire is the same.

It's not the ground that makes quake,
but the burning work beneath the plate.
The soil is just the messenger for what the fire has to say.

And our fire is the same.

Noble pine may flash spectacular when it lights at last,
But the underbrush and stunted shrubs and disappointing failed trunks
Nurture the inferno till its time
and it's time

And our fire is the same.
