I wake up in the morning, take big pharma lozenges,
Swallowing the juice of Israeli blood oranges,
Then I sit down and read the newspaper,
It tells me the enemy and lets me know the saviour,
This week's flavour, Asylum seekers,
As I lace up my blood-stained sneakers,
I turn on the television, what have I got?
The war rages on and it's only 8 o'clock

Fire, Fire, Well I wanna set the world on fire,
Fire, Fire, Yeah I wanna set the world on fire,
Watch it all burn down,
We can start again,
Fire, Fire, Fire, Fire!

They say it's just been invented,
And it's now in shop, heaven sent it
And cures in always just one drop,
So pay the doctor, to be the snipper
We want bigger tits, bigger, bigger, bigger, yeah!
This is how we use the greatest minds in science,
Not a cure for cancer, but a profit for giants,
They blind the clients with advertisements
If security heightens that ain't progress, it's violence

Fire, Fire, Well I wanna set the world on fire,
Fire, Fire, Yeah I wanna set the world on fire,
Watch it all burn down,
We can start again,
Fire, Fire, Fire, Fire!

And if you notice my grotesque, protest music,
The choice is yours, you can slate it or use it,
Fight the power? Man, we are the power!
Planting seeds in concrete streets and they flower,
Politics and love ain't meant to be sinister,
Primitive but I can't find anything simpler,
I float around the perimeter,
I only the follow to mob to lynch the Prime Minister

Fire, Fire, Well I wanna set the world on fire,
Fire, Fire, Yeah I wanna set the world on fire,
Watch it all burn down,
We can start again,
Fire, Fire, Fire, Fire!
(Watch it all burn down,
We can start again)
Fire, Fire, Fire, Fire!
Fire, Fire, Fire, Fire!

    The song is clearly slating the government and the world we live in.
    'we can start again' - we need to get our act together and improve our lives.
