World On Fire

Hurry, Hurry the world’s on fire
better go higher
or drown in the fire

I weep in suffocating fog
in pelting water
from ahead
that knows no life

Hurry, Hurry the world’s on fire
better go higher
or drown in the fire

It pelts my saturated clothes
but the fire around me is nothing g
nothing but warmth
and I reject it

Hurry, Hurry the world’s on fire
better go higher
or drown in the fire

No I’ll stay
with my water
and fire
and fog

Hurry, Hurry the world’s on fire
better go higher
or drown in the fire

Both water and fire and besieging me
hatred
and sorrow
but I ignore it

Hurry, Hurry the world’s on fire
and not so nice
to people who desire

Just water
Just fire
Just me
Just alone

Hurry, Hurry the world’s on fire
and not so mean
to people that are clean

No
but the chant continues
“Not me, not me”
but it ignores me

Too late, Too late the world’s on fire
and you didn’t go higher
so now you drown in fire.
