All around us fire burns on
Unacknowledged by anyone
And who's to know now which side won
Every one of us held a gun

And we sing 'Ooh, wow'
'Ooh, wow'

Hung together in our rooms
One side is me, one side is you
And carefully now one steps through
Inspects the evil side of youth

And we sing 'Ooh, wow'
'Ooh, wow'

Then altogether our hearts might
Reach for something that's out of sight
That moves around us in our lives
Yeah it moves around us in our eyes

And we sing 'Ooh, wow'
A message
'Ooh, wow'

Then one by one and side by side
Of the earth but out of time
The enemy won't let arms lie
No the enemy would rather die

And we sing 'Ooh, wow'
'Ooh, wow'
The ice age
'Ooh, wow'
'Ooh, wow'

    General CommentI think this song is about the "end of the world" or at least an apocalyptic event where people don't realize the Earth/universe is going to end except for two young people in love. They see the world ending: the corruption, lying, wars, hunger, etc (the fire burs on unacknowledged etc) and yet nobody does anything drastic to fix it. They kill themselves together and someone walks in to find them and see the evil side of youth that brought the two to kill themselves rather than live until the end.

    Peoples' hearts all reach towards the end, something that's out of sight; existing but not tangible. The last verse is the end, one by one and side by side everyone escapes earth and time and life.
