Fire for the hills pick up your feet and let's go.
Head for the hills pick up steel on your way.
And when you find a piece of them in your site,
Fire at will, don't you waste no time.

Another thought of the unaware,
Addiction in disguise.

With a drop of blood,
You will take them out, for me.

Fire from the hills pick up speed and let's go.
Fire for real, yeah shoot to kill with no aim.
Head for the hills yes eyes on the camp fire glow.
Creep up there like a white mink hiding in snow.

And outta black a figure forms a soldier in the sky.
With a drop of love, trying to set you free.

Run for the hills, pick up your feet and let's go.
We did our jobs, pick up speed now lets move.
The trees can't grow without the sun in their eyes.
And we can't live if we're too afriad to die.

Hold on tight, yes hold on tight you're too slow.
Fire at the breeze that blows these thoughts through our mind.
Hire only thieves to steal the thoughts from our heads.

    The song is about nihilism (to destroy things for no good reason, simply for the sake of destroying them).

    And once destroyed, anarchy prevails. Social disorder ensues and there is agression and violence from all sides.

    Then we look to the heavens for help - for a warrior to save us. And we struggle to regain the social know how to live as a society again by trying to fight the intangible forces that destroyed our order to begin with.

    All the while, we are picked apart by thieves who steal the fruits of our collective intellect as spiral into oblivion.

    It's reminiscent of war through out history from the perspective of a young soldier's emotions and thoughts of killing another in time of war. Drawing, possibly from: the War of 1812, American Revolution, Civil War or Spanish American War. The Black Angels are a band from Texas, they probably drew inspiration from Texas' war history, but for the most part, it is ambiguous, left up to listener to decide. Nonetheless, a very poetic and creative song with a sound reminiscent of the Doors, but with a new, fresh feel to it.
