Fire

Set the earth on fire
align us with the stars
grow your ladders taller
and branch out with your arms

The fact remains
that no one’s sane
and we can’t keep it still
Just take my eyes
and lead my gaze
along the ocean sky

Burn those witches
Hang those witches
Take the lady down

I can see the fire
from the bottom of this hill
gleaming rings of Saturn
among a mystery still

Inside the dark
our breath is warm
and damp against the glass
And fingerprints
like ghosts remain
a memory of this time

Burn those witches
Hang those witches
Take the lady down

At the universe end
there are so many stars
watching as we fall
And the cycle within
and the stardust inside
keep our bellies full

But you’re still setting fires
so that evolution fails
Can’t you hear our whispers
guiding peaceful sails

You navigate
a blind brigade
the coast is close at hand
The prospect of
our end in sight
a bloody seed remains

Burn those witches
Hang those witches
Blame Us Witches
Take the lady down
