I walked along the mountain side
And noticed thick, black smoke that filled the air, but noone cared
I raced towards the valley with my arms up screaming loudly
But it appeared noone could hear

I looked upon the bridge and saw the children
Standing lonely and lost and crying, their fear of dying
Their stranded in this old ghost town
Their parents are all underground and save from this fate

The problem with most people is
They think that if don’t know it’s alright to lose the fight
They strive to get security
But safety doesn’t matter in place of green, know what I mean?

Fire on the mountain spreading quickly towards the valley
It is a shame, it can’t be tamed
The rain can’t stop its rapid growth
The wind provides no antidote
It came, but who’s to blame

I fell into a fitful sleep and had a dream
That all had turned out right, at least for tonight
If wishful thinking is all I’ve got
I’ll cherish it right down to the last drop, until it stops

Fire on the mountain spreading quickly towards the valley
It is a shame, it can’t be tamed
The rain provides no antidote
The wind can’t stop its rapid growth
It came, but who’s to blame

Listener Guide

Analysis: A song built from a sales pitch, this was originally written as part of a trilogy. The Lyric is poetic and sound is adequate, but the melody never quite matured.
