"Shine" as written by Ulrich Schnauss and Robert Duncan Mcvey....
Shine,
So fragile
Try,
With such kindness
Self-regardless

Lie,
So truthfully
Unknowingly

Don't hide,
'Cause I'm on your side,
I'm on your side

Brighter,
Closer,
Such loss,
Such fear

So close,
We are
Not lost,
Not far

Shine,
So fragile
Don't hide,
'Cause I'm on your side,
I'm on your side


Brighter,
Closer,
Such loss,
Such fear

Stand off,
On fire
We touch
Desire

Jesus Christ
On fire
Desire
Jesus Christ on fire

I don't see you in my sky
I don't see you in my sky
I don't see you in my sky

Burnt out like faded stars,
We are
Burnt out like faded stars,
We are

If I could go right now,
So far
If I could go right now
So far

Burnt out like faded stars,
We are
Burnt out like faded stars,
We are

    General CommentJust a correction: It's NOT "Jesus Christ on Fire"

    It's "Jesus Christ, I'm on Fire. If you listen in a good pair of monitors or headphones you can hear this. The song is very stylized lyrically and there is a brever (reversed reverb) effect layered on the vocals that makes it difficult sometimes. And the way it is sung at that point, it most certainly at first sounds like "JC on Fire" because I'm & on are mashed up very quickly. Lyrically that wouldn't make any sense, and could be considered offensive. Kind of interesting that the addition of the word "I'm" makes it flow better lyrically. I'm sure Robert Duncan McVey new this when he wrote the lyrics.

    just a correction I figured should be mentioned.

    The rest of the lyrics looks on point everyone. Thanks for contributing. :)
