Fire Burning

by Keith Anderson © Andisongs
from the album Retrospective

Sha la, sha la, sha la, sha la, oh yeah

I was drawn into myself
Observing all this time
From every angle I could see
My people, you're meeting hell
Brothers have turned to crime
So they die from time to time
We'd like to ask you leaders
What have you got in mind

I see the fire spreading
It's getting hotter and hot
The haves will want to be
In the shoes of the have-nots
If the sign is on your door
Then you will be saved for sure
But if you are in pretence
You're on the wrong side of the fence
Oh yeah - you better believe me
People -
Believe, believe, believe me when I tell you

Another thing I saw in visions
Right in front my eyes
Sisters prostituting, selling away their lives
They get but very little pay
The ones who clean the mess
Minority who sits on top
Just rate themselves the best

But I see the fire spreading
It's getting hotter and hot
The haves will want to be
In the shoes of the have-nots
If the sign is on your door
Then you will be saved for sure
But if you are in pretence
You're on the wrong side of the fence
Oh yeah - you better believe me
People -
Believe, believe, believe me when I tell you
