When we were young and lost and found
and we had sprouted from the ground,
and Lord, to save us from the wet,
came into all our chests to set
Our Hearts on fire!
our hearts on fire!
our hearts on fire!
our hearts on fire!

When we were young and lost and found,
and we had sprouted from the ground,
when we were old and we were dead
You set our hearts on fire and said
"I made you live to burn alive:
Smoking hearts and forest fires,
so you can set all others ablaze!"

Wake up dead man, from your sleep,
from the fires of hell to the waters of peace
throw your heart into His arms,
these weakened ribs won't hold us long

When we were young and lost and found
and we had sprouted from the ground
the Lord, to save us from the wet
came into all our chests to set
