Calm The Fire

  • Calm the fire do not fight anymore
    They don't know what they're saying they don't know anything at all
    For all that matters is you know that this is not their fault
    All the places we should never go
    Lost between the cracks something wicked waits below
    And all I'm saying there are some things better left unseen at all

    It's been so long it's tearing me apart
    I cannot understand or comprehend
    Where we went wrong. Now we've come so far
    The madness in our hearts will never end

    'Cause I've seen it all
    I can't fight it anymore
    If I had burned forevermore
    Is there nothing left to save?

    'Cause now more than ever what we need
    Is love to replace all the obscene
    Something good and something beautiful if only we could see
    That now more than ever what we need
    Is a little love

    Is there no more have we gone too far?
    There's nothing I can do to make you sway
    To see the blood running through our hearts
    No different from the blood we've come to hate

    When I close my eyes
    I dream that we are colorblind
    And now you know you can't deny
    Only ignorance to blame

    'Cause now more than ever what we need
    Is love to replace all the obscene
    Something good and something beautiful if only we could see
    That now more than ever what we need
    Is a little love

    Now let it calm the fire that burns within your heart tonight
    For some are too blind to see the world as it's meant to be

    When I close my eyes
    I dream that we are colorblind
    And now you know you can't deny
    Only ignorance to blame

    'Cause now more than ever what we need
    Is love to replace all the obscene
    Something good and something beautiful if only we could see
    That now more than ever what we need
    Is a little love Writer/s: MARK TREMONTI, MYLES KENNEDY, SCOTT PHILLIPS
