Great fire burning
Fores burning spreading through the ark
I'm animal and panicking
Your glance a match on the tinder wood
Bring water

Great fire burning through
Great fire burning through my house and heart
Great fire burning
Fires burning spreading through the zoo
I'm animal and panicking
No round of drinks can extinguish this
Bring water

But it's never been as hot as this
Memories of old loves crack and blister

You never spoke but I understood
Eyes bring water
