I lit a match today
I watched it burn away
All that I had, all that I've owned
All that I've wanted, all that I've known
I can rebuild bigger and higher
I can replace what I lost in the fire

I lit a match today
I watched it blow away
Yeah, they'll investigate
Sift through the mire
To determine the cause of this beautiful fire
Let ‘em speculate to their heart's desire
This wasn't arson, it's a funeral pyre

Let it all burn up to the sky
There is a freedom you cannot deny
I can rebuild, bigger and higher
I can replace what I lost in the fire

See the parade fall in line
Yeah, look at the diamonds in their eyes
Not just from the riches, nor from the gold
But from all of the spoils that they found in the coal
Let them feel the warmth of their newfound desire
As they dance through the ashes of what they lost in the fire

Let it all burn up to the sky,
There is a freedom you cannot deny
I can rebuild bigger and higher
I can replace what we lost in the fire

Ash and the candle, fortune untold
Blissful indulgence as the future unfolds
The wheat and the chaff will all burn away
With resurgence and splendor, listen as we sing

Let it all burn up to the sky
There is a freedom that won't be denied
I can rebuild bigger and higher
I can replace what we lost in the fire, yeah, oh!
Oh, what we lost in the fire
We will replace what we lost in the fire

Sing, sing! 2, 3, uh!
