"Dig For Fire" as written by and Charles Thompson....
There is this old woman
She lives down the road
You can often find her
Kneeling inside of her hole
And I often ask her
"Are you looking for the mother lode?"
Huh?
No.
No my child, this is not my desire
And then she said

I'm digging for fire
I'm digging for fire
I'm digging for fire
I'm digging for fire

There is this old man
Who spent so much of his life sleeping
That he is able to keep awake for the rest of his years
He resides
On a beach
In a town
Where I am going to live
And I often ask him
"Are you looking for the mother lode?"
Huh?
No.
No my child, this is not my desire
And then he said
I'm digging for fire
I'm digging for fire
I'm digging for fire
I'm digging for fire

    General CommentI think it's like
    "Are you looking for treasures?"
    "No, I'm looking for destruction."
    Digging for fire...fire has always been something we've depended on, yet so dangerous. Isn't digging for it a way of saying that you desire your own destruction? And enjoy it.

    I love this song.
