"Fire Fire" as written by Sameer Bhattacharya, James Culpepper, Jared Hartmann, Kirkpatrick Seals and Lacey Nicole Sturm....
Almost thought we made it home,
But we don't know this place at all,
That's enough now dry your tears
It's been a long eleven years

Fire, fire fire!
Fire from the tongues of liars,
You're ashamed of where you're from,
Crying 'cause your father's drunk
We can't die because we're young
At least that's what we heard in a song

Fire, fire fire!
Fire from the tongues of liars,
Fire, fire fire!
Fire from the tongues of liars

You're ashamed of what you've done,
Crying 'cause your father's wrong
Trying to be something new,
You'll feel that you had something to prove

What you confuse for glorious fire
This fire from the tongues of liars,
What you confuse for glorious fire
Is fire from the tongues of liars

This fire from the tongues of liars
(Fire, fire)
Fire from the tongues of liars
(Fire, fire)
Fire from the tongues of liars

Fire, fire fire!
Fire from the tongues of liars,
Fire, fire fire!
Fire from the tongues of liars)

You're afraid of who you are
Crying 'cause your father's done
Dreaming 'til you hit the truth
You'll find that you've nothing to lose

You'll find that you've nothing to prove

    My OpinionMy first impression of this song was about fathers who refuse to take up responsibilities and how it affects their children... I know its a bit obvious since all she says is Crying cause your father's gone or drunk or wrong, but still it reminded me a lot of myself... You tend to want to believe that everything will be normal (What you confuse for glory's fire) but what you believe to be normal tends to be false (is fire from the tongues of liars)... The kids tend to want to be completely opposite of their fathers (trying to be something new, you'll feel you have something to prove). That's just my opinion.

    Also, it's not Clinging to your youthful truth... It's either Dreaming til you hit the truth or Grieving til you hit the truth.

    My InterpretationWhen I first heard this song I thought of the war going on over seas. It's been 11 years since the 9/11 attack. And the "fire from the tongues of liars" could be refering to the lies the presidents have been telling and thngs they are hiding.

    My InterpretationWhat you confuse for glory's fire
    Is fire from the tongues of liars

    In my opinion Lacey is aware and condemning the sweeping craze of false manifestations through the church. So many people getting "slain" or "drunk" on the "glory" are either being led by mass hyposis, peer pressure to fit in, or actual demonic powers.

    My OpinionI honestly believe this song was about the tragedy that happened in 2001 which was 11 years ago ... and when she said " Fire From The Tongues Of Liars " I kinda figured she was referring to the secrets the presidents and higher authority (Illuminati) kept from us to know because ignorance is bliss ......but the thing about this song that throws me ALL OFF is when she said things about crying cause your father's drunk , wrong or gone . flyleaf is so complex which makes me LOVE them dearly .

    General CommentThe whole song reminds me of the bible verses James 3:5-6
    I love Flyleaf for this reason; they usually write songs based off of a verse, and write a story around that.

    My InterpretationI think the father in this song is the father of her country (the president) and the song is called "Fire Fire" because one fire means is passion and the other means weapons fire. "Fire from the tongues of liars" is lying about the glory in war.

    General CommentI think everyone is thinking way too deep into this. I don't think it's about politics or the church. I think it's about what the words say: an alcoholic/deadbeat father, and the struggles of the child. I don't know why everything has to be a huge metaphor.

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about people that have a voice because of fame or have a large amount of support by people somehow. Despite them having authority when they speak, and despite them being listened to, they are not really true people and what they say doesn't represent truth. They have "fire" in their tongues cuz they have a voice that can impact but since what they say isn't true they have "tongues of liars" idk not completely sure on this song meaning - just my take on this song

    General CommentThis song is about all the false preachings and powerhungry people that make you question your faith. Most people don't understand the religion they practice, and tend to get mixed up with right and wrong. The repeated line "crying cause your father's..." is referring to God, and the fact that people are confused at or angry with him when really, something else is causing certain issues in your life. That's just my opinion...
