"After the Fire" as written by and Andrew Ross Mcmahon Mark Carl Stolinkski Williams....
Why dream?
We’re breaking out of this machine
Lets bathe the walls in gasoline
and watch the fires go

We’ll burn this house
We’ll raze the fence that keeps us in
The cabinets and the medicine
Beds like box cars in a row

And when the wave comes sweeping
The cold blood sleeping in your veins
Your veins
After the fire
The sun comes crashing
Through a could so black and full of rain
Of rain
After the fire
I swear one day
You will forget them locking us away
Away
After the fire

Locked in
The days will end as the begin
With yellow moonlight on your skin
This madhouse, it’s no home
Let’s go home
Get the matches
Cut the phone

And when the wave comes sweeping
The cold blood sleeping in your veins
Your veins
After the fire
The sun comes crashing
Through a could so black and full of rain
Of rain
After the fire
I swear one day
You will forget them locking us away
Away
After the fire

We were dancing with the ashes falling
We were singing by the open flame
Let it burn
Tomorrow is another day
We were dancing with the ashes falling
We were singing by the open flame
Let it burn
Tomorrow is another day

When the wave comes sweeping
The cold blood sleeping in your veins
Your veins
After the fire
The sun came crashing
Through a could so black and full of rain
Of rain
After the fire
I swear one day
We will forget them locking us away
Away
After the fire
We will forget them locking us away
Away
After the fire
