And so was the plight of man for generations
Their souls remained frozen
Enslaved in darkness
Until the day that fire fell from heaven
Those who witnessed the blaze took up torches
And carried them into all the earth
Bearing witness that fire would be the key
To undoing the enemy’s grasp on their souls
Yet there were those who refused to believe
Since they had not seen the source of the blaze with their own eyes
Still many others left all they had behind
They took up torches and carried the flame
I will carry the flame to the end of the earth with me
This fire that burns forever is the only thing that sets me free
They marched deep into the depths of the earth
To reclaim their souls from the enemy

    General CommentThe second of the quadrilogy of The Physics of Fire songs. The first three lines recount the history of mankind after the fall of Adam and Eve and before Jesus' first-coming as a time of darkness and the repeating metaphor of their souls being frozen from sin. "Until", is a key transtional pharse in the quadrilogy. Before this transition, there is an overall feeling of hopeless are man had fallen with no hope of salvation. Yet this fire falls from the heaven. This fire is Jesus, the only one who can thaw us from the ice of sin. It coninues to describe his followers as the ones to "take up torches and carry them into all the eath". They are also to share to the world the remedy for removing the enemy's grasp on their life. This carryinig alludes to Jesus' parable of being lights in a dark world. Yet still there are people who refuse to accept because they had not seen themselves. But even in the midst of unbelief, there were those who left the things of this world and pursued to reclaim their soul, stolen by the enemy and sin. Story continues with Epoch of War (The Physics of Fire Pt. 3).
