"Start The Fire" as written by David Wayne Carnell, Craig Stephen Wells and Kurdt York Vanderhoof....
Break down the walls of forever.
Pull down hard on the lever.
Let them know that you can turn the key.
Though they try to hold us down.
Turn it up, that chainsaw sound.
I just love to see my parents flee.

So you see that they're all going nowhere.
Everybody's staring into space.
Start the fire.
Bring down the hammer.
Start start the fire.
Burning on forever.

Now I see the storm clouds a coming.
Can you feel the juice, it's a hummin'.
Feed the power cables into me.

Like a ship that's built for destruction.
I'm a metal man of construction.
And I'll fire my cannons, one by one.

So you see that they're all going nowhere.
Everybody's staring into space.
Start the fire.
Bring down the hammer.
Start start the fire.
Burning on forever.

    General CommentLooking at the lyrics of this song, which i first heard in 1986, and checking out the line "Turn the key", it sounds like it may be about nuclear war. They also use the lyrics "storm clouds", "seeing my parents flee". Yep. Sounds like nuclear war tune. Awesome tune, whatever it really means!
