There is fire on the mountain,
and nobody seems to be on the run.
Oh there is fire on the mountain top,
and no one is'ah running.

I wake up in the morning...
tell you what I see on my TV screen :
I see the blood of an innocent child,
and everybody's watching.

Now, I'm looking out of my window,
and what do I see ?
I see an army of soldiers that're
marching across the street, heh...

What did they say to make you so blind,
to your conscience and reason ?
Could it be love for your country,
or for the gun you use in killing ? So...

There is fire on the mountain,
and nobody seems to be on the run.
Oh there is fire on the mountain top,
and no one is'ah running.

Heh, Mister Loverman !
Can I get a chance to talk to you ?
'cause you are fooling with a dead man's corpse,
and you don't know what you do. Oh...

So little Lucy turns sixteen,
and like the movie she's been seeing,
she has a lover in her daddy.
She can't tell nobody...
'till she makes the evening news.

For there is fire on the mountain,
and nobody seems to be on the run.
Oh there is fire on the mountain top,
and no one is'ah running. Oh yes.

One day the river will overflow,
and there'll be nowhere for us to go

    There is fire on the mountain and nobody seems to be on the run.
    Oh there is fire on the mountain top and no one is a’ running.

    I wake up in the morning - tell you what i see on my tv screen
    I see the blood of an innocent child and everybody's watching.

    Now, i'm looking out my window and what do i see?
    I see an army of a soldier man marching across the street, hey...

    Hey mr. Soldier man, tomorrow is the day that you go to war
    But you are fighting for another man’s 'cause
    And you don’t even know him

    What did they say to make you so blind to your conscience and reason?
    Could it be love for your country or for the gun you use in killing?

    So there is fire on the mountain and nobody seems to be on the run
    Oh there is fire on the mountain top and no one is a’ running.

    Hey, mister lover-man can i get a chance to talk to you?
    'cause you are fooling with a dead man's corpse and you don't know what to do.

    So you say you have a lover and you love her like no other
    So you buy her a diamond that someone has died on
    - don’t you think there’s something wrong with this?

    Tell me, who’s responsible for what we teach our children?
    Is it the internet or the stars on television?
    Why oh why? Why oh, why oh? Oh!

    So little lucy turns sixteen and like the movie she's been seeing
    She has a lover in her daddy - she can't tell nobody till she makes the evening news.

    For there is fire on the mountain and nobody seems to be on the run.
    Oh there is fire on the mountain top and no one is a’ running. Oh yes.

    One day the river will overflow and there'll be nowhere for us to go
    And we will run, run... Wishing we had put out the fire, oh no...

    For there is fire on the mountain and nobody seems to be on the run.
    Oh there is fire on the mountain top and no one is a’ running. So yeah, yeah, yeah!

    There is fire on the mountain, (fire in africa) and nobody seems to be on the run (everywhere,in the city)
    Oh there is fire on the mountain top and no-one is a’ running (no-one is a running)

    There is fire on the mountain (fire, fire, fire) and nobody seems to be on the run….
