"Fire in Freetown" as written by Gerald Eaton, Brian West and Keinan Warsame....
There is no way to write it there is no way to fight it
And I kick and scream but you got me despite it
And I got my pride so I begin to hide it
Like a fire in a free town you begin to lighten it

Aha aha aha
Sidii hogasha roobka
Ah ah aha you shine down upon me
Aha aha aha Sidii hogasha roobka aha aha aha you shine down upon me

By some higher order you keep getting bolder
By god or by country you kill like a soldier
By some widdle you sung little but scream mighty stronger
Like fire in free town you old magic spoiler.

Aha aha aha
Sidii hogasha roobka
Ah ah aha you shine down upon me
Aha aha aha Sidii hogasha roobka aha aha aha you shine down upon me

You place pins in my ribs and ask me to lie down
My pain is your pleasure but pleasure is all mine
You lend me your false ear and I lend you my false lines
Like fire in free town I'm fueled by your gold mine

Aha aha aha
Sidii hogasha roobka
Ah ah aha you shine down upon me
Aha aha aha Sidii hogasha roobka aha aha aha you shine down upon me

She pulled out her match and she burned down my home
Fire fire
She know it to touch me to turn me to stone
Fire fire
She come like a storm and she rained on my lawn
Fire fire
She pulled out her match and she burned down my home
Fire fire
She come like a storm and she rained on my lawn
Fire fire
She know it to touch me she know it I know
Fire fire
She come like a storm and she rained on my lawn
Fire fire
She pulled out her match and she burned down my home

    General CommentThis is a truly beautiful song, and definitely one of my favorites that he's done over the years. In case anyone is wondering, sidii hogasha roobka means 'like the falling rain' in Somali.

    General Commentbut i still don't get the gist of the song...is he talking about a girl? or a force? or literally just some girl who has power over him?
