How did we lose this great raft
Everything burns in our past
The balance we broke
Left us running through smoke
You're at the blue light of the flame

As the earth melted the poles

As the light turns to dark
But the light shines through

Yes when the hurricanes came

We have all injured file
We feel our desire
You kneel at the blue light of the flame

Happy on rescue
Somebody left you
Looking to the blue light of the flame
