"This Lonely Fire" as written by Karl Kippenberger, Phillip Knight, Tom Larkin and Jon Charles Toogood....
There's a streetlight faded for the day
There's a bombsite to be swept away

I will take the day off
I will take the day
Let the worry dissolve
Gonna celebrate
I will take the day off
I will take the day
I will take the day off

Because I've done everything you told me to
There's no need to act surprised
All my life I've done what I was meant to do
Never thought about asking why

And your own desire will let you know that it's true
There's a lonely fire replacing the old with the new

Replacing the old with the new (x4)

As the city fills with light and noise
While the whole world waits to be destroyed

I will take the day off
I will take the day
Let the worry dissolve
Gonna celebrate
I will take the day off
I will take the day
I will take the day off

Because I've done everything you told me to
There's no need to act surprised
All my life I've done what I was meant to do
Never thought about asking why

And your own desire will let you know that it's true
There's a lonely fire replacing the old with the new

Replacing the old with the new (x4)

I can't remember my own name
It's been forever, now I'm back again

And I cannot believe all the things we deny
Waiting for others to make it right
Even when it was clear the dream wasn't true
Wouldn't admit to the one thing left to do

Replacing the old with the new (x4)

There's a streetlight faded for the day
There's a bombsite to be swept away

Because I've done everything you told me to
There's no need to act surprised
All my life I've done what I was meant to do
Never thought about asking why

And your own desire will let you know that it's true
There's a lonely fire replacing the old with the new

Replacing the old with the new (x4)
