The night of timeless fire is drawing near I flee, throughout the years of throe Watching through a mirror, as I fall apart I see a wreck, I'm burning
I see angels burning, falling down in ruins Looking down I see me, I'm my own enemy
Watching myself decaying, falling from high spirits I flee, throughout the ruins of me Longing for finding my way out Leaving myself, there's nothing left for me The ruins are about to crumble down.
The flame is dying by shivery winds of jet black skies It reflects hatred in my eyes
I see angels burning, falling down in ruins Looking down I see my ashes scattered around my grave
Angels whispering fire, no longer I'm alive Settled down I'm done with the trip to my kingdom come

"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
