It's burning

It's burning

Everything inside of me's burning

I asked thee, take this cup

I asked thee, place me far

There with the children

There with the children

The children of bright eyes and missing limbs

There with the children

There with the children

But everything inside of me's burning for this


My soul and hearts have combined

And they are beating deadly fast

They are beating deadly fast

And I am intertwined with this

I will do this, I will burn

But I will not dare break

Everything inside of me's burning for this


I'm calling, I'm calling

Everything inside of me's calling and crying

But they won't see it but hear it

If they listen

I ask thee, I ask thee

Overfloweth my cup

Far and wide, far and wide

And I will be the river bed


Throw me 'round the world

Throw me 'round the world

Make it You, not me

Make it You, not me

I'm limp in Your arms

Throw me 'round the world


I want to carry those children out of the sunken ground

Here and there

I want to hold up the arms of the fathers

Here and there

Let me break the ties that bind the mothers

Here and there

Let me keep my wits about me

Keep my eyes on them

Here and there

Throw me
