Lets set this city ablaze
Burn down the monuments and
Build mountains in their place
Where we can see everything
We could start a fire
And I'll shine in its light
It shines so bright ?with burning eyes?
Well the story's ending
This is the last time we will ever bleed to feel alive
Could ?? at this rehearsal
Your hollow hands rekindle
This is the last time we will ever bleed to feel alive
Could ?? at this rehearsal
Your hollow hands rekindle
The last time we will ever bleed to feel alive
Catching the fruits of our labor
Holding our hearts in our hands
Waiting for you to sound a prayer in the form of an anchor
Reply by holding you up in a ??
Lets set this city ablaze
We'll learn to start a fire.

    General Commentthis song is about pure INSPIRATION and HOPE. "We can start a fire" meaning, we can inspire, we can give hope. it's as simple as that. FSF is the BEST!!!!!!

    General Commentlet’s set this city ablaze
    we’ll burn down the monuments
    and build mountains in our place
    we could see everything
    we could start a fire
    and all shine in its light
    shine so bright we burn in eyes
    and heal the stories ending
    this is the last time
    we will ever bleed to feel alive

    consider this a rehearsal
    your heart of hearts rekindled
    catching the fruits of our labors
    and holding our hearts in our hands
    waiting for you to sound a prayer
    in the form of an anchor
    replied by holding you up
    in red skies bound by love
    let’s set this city ablaze
    we’ll learn how to start a fire
    shine so bright we burn in eyes

    General Commentany idea on the...
    "catching the fruits of our labors
    and holding our hearts in our hands
    waiting for you to sound a prayer
    in the form of an anchor..."
    part.

    i'm not too sure about it. FSF rocks, saw them not long ago. crazy there was literally 50 peple there, mayyybe. i was about 3 feet from Jon and the rest of the guys and they still put on a great show.
    take it easy guys... and girls lol

    General CommentThis song is about God. All the members of Further Seems Forever are Christians, and viewed from that perspective the meaning of all the lyrics becomes quite clear

    General Commentblindsuperhero, perhaps if you listened to what the band said, instead of being so fundamentalist and forcing your belief bias into their song you'd know they are not a christian band:
