(Repeat verse pattern again)

A forest fire,
Nibbles at your veins,
Crawls up your arm, runs away with your mind,
And burns dry thoughts like leaves


Chorus: play once through

Verse 2: Repeat same pattern as first verse twice


Eyes stare up, 
But something's in the way
In the Bible, only angels have wings
And the rest must wait to be saved.

A dry tongue,
Screams at the sky,
But the wind just breathes words in
As a strange bird tries to fly.


(Repeat Chorus)


Verse 3: Play verse pattern three times through


Pieces of us die everyday
As though our flesh were hell.
Such and injustice as children we were told that
From God we fell.

Where are my angels?
Where's my golden one?
And where is my hope now that my heroes have gone?

Some are being beaten,
Some are being born,
And some can't tell the difference anymore.


(Repeat Chorus Twice...second time singing one ocatve higher)
