World on Fire

lyrics

Fiery skies, smoke's on the wind. I want to make it stop but I can only cough. Darkness filters out the light, chokes hope's fading glow, our spirits, sinking low. The world is on fire, but it's really nothing new. The world's been on fire, it's just now reaching me, reaching you.

The storms keep on pummeling. Our hearts can't take the pain, only change remains. Luck of birth can only last so long. We're dust, destined to join the ashes of the past. The world is on fire but it's really nothing new. The world's been on fire it's just now reaching me, reaching you.

Nothing gold can stay, everything fades away. Nothing gold can stay, so hold me for today.

So we breathe and love the ones we're with. Follow the tao, we only have right now. The world is on fire but it's really nothing new. The world's been on fire, it's just now reaching me, reaching you, reaching you.

Nothing gold can stay, everything fades away. Nothing gold can stay, everything fades away. Nothing gold can stay, so hold me for today
