lyrics: 
------- 
drifting upward,  
gently lifting, 
lazy on the wind. 
  
rollin' over,  
turning slowly,  
begingin in 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, 
finish in the start. 
  
in the begining, 
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, 
full reminders, 
sorted things remain. 
  
tooth and bone, 
i am blessed, 
i have left these things. 
  
because fire is bright, 
fire is clean, 
patient and divine. 
  
tooth and bone, 
charms and dust, 
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.
