"Fire In The Hole" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gordon Sinclair....
You triumphed over will
You had immunity to kill
You had your dreams fulfilled
And I love you still
But there's a power beyond control
There's a fire in the hole
Ah the nights are getting cold
All your secrets will be told
Turn your lanterns low

As long as you can dig up proof
As cold as water through the roof
Brutal as depicted truth
That kid's a fuckin goof
Turn your lanterns low
But there's a power beyond control
There's a fire in the hole
Yeah the nights are getting cold
All his secrets will be told
Turn your lanterns low
Alright

I'd like to stand up soon and show
I'd like to let some people know
I'd turn my bucket over
I'd turn my lantern low
But there's a power beyond control
There's a fire in the hole
Yeah the nights are getting cold
All my secrets would be told
Turn your lanterns low
Alright
Alright

    General CommentI think this song is about a person who has killed a person and then buried the body in the grounds, and now it is haunting his conscience.
    But theres probably lots of others meaning to this song, as other Hip songs have proved.

    General CommentThis song is about a neo-Nazi movement that sprung up around the time of the album; "triumphed over will" is quite likely a reference to the famous documentary produced by the party, Trimuph of the Will. Gord often calls this "the song of hate" during live shows.
