I Came for Fire

I turn up like midnight

Like the edge of town

Of all the loose matches

I'll move among the found

In fact they'll call me sire

As I rise to the crown

I came for fire

A stickup, a cave, no sound

 

Quiet the sirens

Down every dead end seed

Let in to the sun way

The eye teeth

The diet white tiger 

I force her to feed

I came for fire

My shade grows long against the trees

 

Lift the trumpet

Lead the unicorn

Into the night

No more forlorn

The tower is wired

To fall to a thorn 

I came for fire

I put it to each, all form

 

 

Just one second

Before we end

And back to the stars

Return again

I can hear the choirs 

From inside the curtain

I came for fire

If I go I know I come back again

Or I stay for love

 

I came for fire

I stay for love

I came for fire

I stay for love

I came for fire

I stay for love
