Fire Suite 1

I remember that dance
On the roof of my car
When St. Lucy's mad torch
Put away our best bar

Say we drank
And we prayed
Some just sat like a choir
Came the smoke
In the night
Came the heat
Came the fire

Ember glow lagered ash
I was pissed as a fart
Stricken some dumb plum numb
We was broken at heart

Say we drank
And we prayed
Some just sat like a choir
Came the smoke
In the night
Came the light
Came the fire

Say we drank
And we prayed
Some just sat like a choir
Came the smoke
In the night
Came the heat
Came the fire

Say we drank
And we prayed
Some just sat like a choir
Came the smoke
In the night
Came the light
Came the fire
