Driftin' upward, gently lifting
Lazy on the wind
Rollin' over, turnin' slowly
Beginning and the end

Fire is bright, fire is clean
Never so alive
Smoke is freedom, flame is mercy
I am free tonight

And I burn
I burn

Stoke the embers, cleanse the spirit
A prayer in every spark
Feel the lick of bad religion
The finish and the start

In the beginning we were smarter
And flame was heaven-sent
Through the ages we got stupid
Now we must repent

And I burn
I burn

Sift the ashes for reminders
Stony things remain
Tooth and bone unimpressive
I have left these things

Because fire is bright, fire is clean
Efficient and divine
Tooth and bone, charms and dolls
I am free tonight

I burn the air you breathe
I burn the air you breathe
I burn the air you breathe
I burn, I burn, I burn, I burn

LEWIS, TODD
