James Songbook - 3. 1996

1996

I have seen the fire
Destroying everything in it path
In its blazing wrath

I have seen the fire
Bringing terror as its might
As it consumes the night

I have seen the fire
Slaying friends and lovers
Strangers and brothers

I have seen the fire.
Out of control consumning souls
Hell on earth a mass funeral pyre

I have been burned by the fire
With scars that don't show
The loss it still burns and stings

Friends and lovers I can not replace
I am haunted by their familiar faces
ashes and memories that I hold dear
Are all thats left of those times and places

I have seen the fire and the funeral pyre
When I saw the lights go out on my generation
And horror and confusion gripped the nation
Consumed in a viral conflagration

I look to my right and look to my left
at the lonely, empty spaces
I walk where we walked and talk where we talked
in the lonely empty places
and wonder to my self why am I still here
the smoke it still stings my eyes
Someone must be left to remember
The year that innocence died.
