"Skies On Fire" as written by and Angus Mckinnon Young Malcolm Mitchell Young....
Why don't you hang up,
Won't you back up
Will you pack up and head for higher ground,
I know you and, you know me,
Tell me what it is you want it to be
What you want to be,
What you need in me,
Hey hey hey

[Chorus]
Skies on fire,
Flames burn higher,
Skies on fire,
Flames get higher

I know you, now you know me,
Tell me what it is you want it to be,
In the rain, in the streets,
You're amazed by all the things that you see,
Tell me what I see, how's it got to be,
Yeah yeah yeah

[Chorus]

Hey you look in the sky, skies on fire
Look in the sky, flames burn higher,
Skies on fire,
Flames get higher,
Skies on fire,
I know you and you know me,
Tell me what is it you want to be,
Flames burn higher,
Skies on fire

    General CommentFirst comment for an epic song. One of my favorites in the album. Reminds me of Deep Purple's 'Smoke on the Water'

    General CommentWheres all the comments for this? People need to lay off the screamo/emo/pop punk/indie crap and start to appreciate new releases from classic bands like this. One of my favs from the new album.

    My first post here, so might as well go with an easy song, im sure its about sex and rock and roll like most AC/DC songs.

    General CommentKind of reminds me of "Come Together" by the Beatles....the Bass sounds simular and the lyrics are even kinda close "He say "I know you, you know me"
    One thing I can tell you is you got to be free"

    that song describes somebody Imagine to be a rockstar, with hair to his knees, got to be a joker he just do what he please...maybe the lads in ACDC enjoyed the beatles like everyone else and kinda think of themselves when they hear that song inspiring them to kinda write a little something of their own to keep what they think is good music alive
