  • Fire on the mountain
    Through the freeze
    Save yourself
    There's evil
    In the garden
    But you don't see it
    I can tell

    How do you sleep while
    The city's burning
    Where do you go when you can't go home
    How do you drink when
    There's blood in the water
    Where do you turn when
    The world moves on
    When the world moves on, on

    Fire on the mountain
    You can feel it
    Against your skin
    You're standing
    By the river
    Let the river
    Take you in

    How do you sleep while
    The city's burning
    Where do you go when you can't go home
    How do you drink when
    There's blood in the water
    Where do you turn when
    The world moves on
    When the world moves on
    When the world moves on, on yeah

    [Repeat: x2]
    Hell, I see smoke out on the horizon
    Mama, get your baby, take
    Her down to the water
    I view the wind like a promise broken
    I see the future but
    It's getting farther

    How do you sleep while
    The city's burning
    Where do you go when you can't go home
    How do you drink when
    There's blood in the water
    Where do you turn when
    The world moves on
    When the world moves on, hey
    When the world moves on
    When the world moves on
    When the world moves on
    Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah world moves on
    That world moves on, yeah Writer/s: ROBERT THOMAS
