She's hoping for adventure that got missionary ways
Could start in the jungle, feel this way
Search for an answer over land and over seas
All the mountains of promised opportunities

I cried out but you were lost in a corporate position
So money's the solution curing all that ails the nation
But what about the heart of man the spiritual needs
I'm staring at the starlight and I just can't quite believe

That I'm lost in the fire so close to the wire
Got to survive so close to the wire

The soul needs attention like the body needs to breath
The banks want investment, so who are we?
Cultures are dying but gold reserves are safe
Can't live in this jungle but can't escape

Whatever happened to the dreams we shared together?
A taste of wine, a moonlight song that lasts forever

Lost in the fire so close to the wire
Got to survive so close to the wire

Feel the expectation written in the ways
Each move of a man gives away

You look good to me sat in your ministry position
An image for the masses making serious decisions
Talk about, sham about for all the world to see
Your rhetoric's a quiz game and a mystery to me

'Cause I'm lost in the fire so close to the wire
Got to survive so close to the wire
So close to the wire
