American Aquarium – The World Is On Fire lyrics
[Verse 1]
She looked out the window and said, "The world's on fire"
That's when I laughed and poured her a glass of wine
We just stared at the TV tryin' to find some meanin'
Hopin' that we'd wake up from this dream
Sometime tomorrow

[Verse 2]
Well the night came and went, not a damn thing had changed
That's when I saw a tear fall from her eyes
She said, "What are we gonna do? What's this world comin' to?"
For the first time in my whole life
I stood there speechless

[Chorus]
The load is heavy and the road is long
And we've only begun to fight
We just can't give in, we just can't give up
We must go boldly into the darkness
And be the light

[Verse 3]
So I packed up my car and went lookin' for answers
To the questions weighin' on my mind
When did The Land of the Free become The Home of the Afraid?
Afraid of the world, afraid of the truth
Afraid of each other

[Verse 4]
This ain't the country my grandfather fought for
But I still see the hate he fought against
Give rest to the tired, give mercy to the poor
Give warmth to the huddled masses
And I'll show you freedom

[Chorus]
The load is heavy and the road is long
And we've only begun to fight
We just can't give in, we just can't give up
We must go boldly into the darkness
And be the light

[Verse 5]
I got a baby girl comin' in the spring
I worry 'bout the world she's comin' into
But she'll have my fight, she'll have her mama's fire
If anyone builds a wall in her journey
Baby, bust right through it

[Chorus]
The load is heavy and the road is long
And we've only begun to fight
We just can't give in, we just can't give up
We must go boldly into the darkness

[Chorus]
The load is heavy and the road is long
And we've only begun to fight
We just can't give in, we just can't give up
We must go boldly into the darkness
And be the light
