Overkill – Who Tends The Fire lyrics

WHO TENDS THE FIRE
WHO KEEPS THE TORCHES LIT
WHO FILLS YOUR EYES WITH SMOKE
SO YOU CAN'T SEE
I NEED THE FIRE
I NEED THE TORCHES LIT
TO SEE THROUGH ALL THE SMOKE
COVERING ME
CHORUS
I HAVE SEEN THE FIRES BURNING
BURNING THROUGH THE NIGHT
I HAVE WATCHED THE TIDES A TURNING
AND THEY GO FROM DARK TO LIGHT
WHAT IS THIS MEANING
WHAT DOES THIS WRITING MEAN
WHERE DO I GO
WHAT DO I DO FOR NOW
PROPHECES ARE FOOLISH
THEY NEVER LAST
THEY NEVER SPEAK THE TRUTH
SO WHY ARE THEY CALLING ME NOW.
CHORUS
I DON'T KNOW CAUSE I CANNOT SEE
ALL I'M SURE IS GOTTA BE
I'M NOT SURE THAT I'M EVEN ME
BUT I KNOW THAT I GOTTA BE
YES I KNOW THAT YOU'RE GONNA DIE.
BIRTH, LIFE, DEATH, IS THE REASON WHY
SAVE THOSE FEARS THAT YOU'RE GONNA CRY.
CAUSE I KNOW THAT YOU'RE GONNA DIE
YES I KNOW I CANNOT SEE
AND I'M SURE THAT I GOTTA BE
ALL THESE VOICES ARE KILLIN' ME
BUT THEY SAY THAT I GOT
SAY THAT I GOT
SAY THAT I GOTTA BE ME.
WHO TENDS THE FIRE
WHO KEEPS THE TORCHES LIT
WHO FILL YOUR EYES WITH SMOKE
SO YOU CAN'T SEE
I NEED THE FIRE
I NEED THE TORCHES LIT
TO SEE
CHORUS
