lyrics

A house on fire it cannot stand
Unopened curtains cracklin’
We turn our eyes so we don’t see
Our friends inside on bed sheets bleed

A rootless tree will break and bend
It’s fall is swift at long year’s end
The ice’s weight, too much to bear
While neighbors watch with stoic stares

Gotta rain to snow
Gotta dig. to sew
Gotta prune to grow
Gotta hear to know

A man with weak hands softens blows
That bones would crack and wounds would grow
Scars will fortify our skin
The truth be known to end our sin

Gotta rain to snow
Gotta dig. to sew
Gotta prune to grow
Gotta hear to know

I’m on fire…
