The Fire Rains Down

The fire rains down across the west

Choking smoke and flames

The water rises with the wind

Drowning out our southern lands

 

The drums of war beat loudly

Behind the Nazi chants

Dreams turn into nightmares

None of us are safe

 

I don’t believe in Armageddon

That’s not my kind of God

This horror is not holy

And prayers are not enough

 

Breathe deep with battered lungs

And sing into the howling wind

Beat your hands in time to music

Keep heaven in your heart

 

The roots of love run deep

A taproot to our souls

Be like the mighty redwood

Staying strong amidst the flames.
