"Black Fire" as written by and Herman/theart Li....
We come from
Over the dark horizon sky
With twisted tales of sacrifice
To imagine or believe all the glory of the free

Hunting all day an endless cry
The things I've seen I can't deny
Sinners, saints all mixed in one
The dawn of time has begun

Why can't you see what they're doing to me
Is it fair that I'm dying in vain

Once in a land of sacrifice now only valleys of demise
Shadows of a pale blue moonlight ride the waves of entity

Why can't you see what they're doing to thee
Is it fair that you all die in vain

Ride with the steel and the power of the sword
Stand up and fight now and forever more
Rise through the night sky with daylight's desire
To be free there must be black fire

Through the day and through the night with dragons heart the warrior strikes
This is the day that they'll be known as my enemy

Why can't you see what they're doing
To what we believe in we rise through the pain

Ride with the steel and the power of the sword
Stand up and fight now and forever more
Rise through the night sky with daylight's desire
To be free there must be black fire

We come from distant lands we travel so far
Can you see the bleeding scar
The prizes of life we fail to win
'Cause we doubt the power within

Why can't you see what they're doing to
What we believe in we rise through the pain

Ride with the steel and the power of the sword
Stand up and fight now and forever more
Rise through the night sky with daylight's desire
To be free there must be black fire

Black fire

    General CommentI see Black Fire as a metaphor of what's hard. For example, asking a girl out for the first time would be 'black fire', as they put. The song is about doing what you think should be done, and not being afraid to express yourself. The other message in this song is "to be strong". 'Ride with the steel and the power of the sword, stand up and fight now and forever more. Ride through the night sky with daylight's desire, to be free it must be black fire'. This line is clearly saying: "Do what you think you should, always be strong, work to get what you want, and if you want what you truly desire, you must face pressure (or 'black fire').

    General CommentYou come to songmeanings.net to say the lyrics are literal? Whatever floats your boat, man.

    I see him talking about armed rebellion: "Stand up and fight now."

    "This is the day that they'll be known as my enemy" - no longer will he tolerate the injustice.

    The black fire is collateral damage, and the violent change to the status quo that comes from something like an armed rebellion. Is that the same as overcoming fear to ask a girl out? I don't know. I see it as closer to standing up for yourself, and not just dying without fighting. After all - is that really fair?

    General Commentwell i have to agree with darkwolf, these are real power metal lyrics wih doesnt really mean that much. its simply all about warriors and dragons and battles and all that stuff

    General Commentthis song is so fucking good if I could I'd have sex with it. I would agree with darkwolf that it isnt a metaphor. I'd say that black fire is like people dying. So hes saying if were gunna be free some people must die. If that makes any sense, i duno
