"Fire" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Amir Davidson, Ryan Christopher Shuck and Anthony Valcic....
No need to hear your voice
Or see your face
To know that you are with me
No need to kiss your lips
Or hold your hand
To know that you can feel me
I know that you can feel me

When I look to the stars
I know just where you are
You're looking down upon me
(You're looking down upon me)
When I look to the stars
I know just where you are
You're looking down upon me
(You're looking down upon me)

No need to get locked up
Inside the past
I know that isn't changing
No need to let you go
Or say goodbye
I know that you'll be waiting
Know that you'll be waiting

When I look to the stars
I know just where you are
You're looking down upon me
(You're looking down upon me)
When I look to the stars
I know just where you are
You're looking down upon me
(You're looking down upon me)

On the other side!

On the other side!

I've got to
Find a way
To keep my pain from burning
Down to the bone
I've got to
Find a way!
To keep my pain from burning!
Down to the bone!
Down to the bone!

When I look to the stars
I know just where you are
You're looking down upon me
(You're looking down upon me)
When I look to the stars
I know just where you are
You're looking down upon me
(You're looking down upon me)

    My InterpretationI think this song is about someone who's lost a loved one and is contemplating their situation. Is there life after death, will I ever see you again? That person may also still be grieving the loss. But then they're answering their own questions; they're looking down upon him or her (like Chaz himself maybe, lol). I love this song to death also!! This whole album rules.

    General CommentFrontman Chester Bennington told Artistdirect.com: "'Fire' is the only song (on the album) where I didn't go directly to something with me, but after I wrote it, it actually related to me. In a lot of ways, that song is about doing some soul searching and trying to feel that greater power out there in the universe–knowing you're connected to that. Some people feel like it's a sad song about losing somebody and having them look down on you. You always imagine, after someone passes, that they're up there looking down at you and watching over you–that brings comfort to people as well. In that way, I think that song does connect in many different facets. Every song on this record is about a specific thing that happened to me–that I dealt with over the past four or five years."

    General CommentI love the song, but these are the wrong lyrics. It should be "When I look to the stars I know just where you are, you're looking DOWN UPON ME. And "No need to GET LOCKED UP INSIDE THE PAST", I know it isn't changing".

    General CommentI couldn't help noticing that this song has many references that could be looked at from christian direction

    "No need to see your face or hear your voice
    To know that you are with me" That COULD mean God
    Also
    "When I look to the stars
    I know just where you are
    Your looking down upon me" Seems to fit in theme

    However I also like lbooqieq's idea of song being "about someone who lost a loved one"
