Light the Flame

lyrics

The jungle cats will lurk
And I admire their footwork
No she don't disturb a thing
Leaves it just like when she came

The salmon leaps so high
Trying to get to the source
But he doesn't need a road map
To choose his own course

Unlike the flame
The ashes don't distinguish
What remains
All that was extinguished
Light the flame
That burns up everything
All the same
The wake of destruction
Is in the game

You know the rules just don't apply
When you're using loaded dice
The road to short comings
Is paved with oversights
And there's a name
That often goes unspoken
But the shame
Is when we don't acknowledge
Who's to blame
For each and every action
There's a way
To realize who's hurtin

Unlike the flame
The ashes don't distinguish
What remains
All that was extinguished
Light the flame
That burns up everything
All the same
The wake of destruction
Is in the game

Light the flame
Ignite me I'm on fire
Light the flame
Ignite me I'm on fire
