In the eyes of the Watcher the gleam of flames / Reflecting pictures of the years gone by / Time makes no difference the sleep won´t come / And tomorrows daylight is hiding around / This lonely mind, eyes still awake / Taking a swig now and then / Poking the fire with the rod / Seeking the truth behind the blaze / Where lost all the glory days? / Vanity just remains in his own wishing well / Pre-chorus: / Has learned to fear the fire of life / Has burned his hands so many times / In the shelter of smoke he is feeling home / Chorus: / Mindrust -watching the embers / Time passes his eyes in flow / Grand failure, betrayal, denial / The pain to swallow / Tarred waiting to burn / The glow stays until it fades / Dying weeping and slow / Before the rain comes falling / So the fire does not forever burn / And before the rain he has to learn / Pre-chorus: / The lesson of life we all have to die / Ashes only stays under our names / If believed Kingdom come before all is gone / Is the chance to reborn who´ll need the fire? / Chorus: / Gives him protection from the outside world

    General CommentI think this song is about a man who is afraid to live life(represented by the fire) because life has "burned his hands too many times"(he has had too many negative experiences), so he just stares at the fire as life goes by. But the man has to learn that life is short and if he continues to be afraid of being burned, "the rain will come falling" (death). Not too sure about the rest though (I'm too lazy right now). The opening to this song is so powerful. Kalmah rocks!
