The Power of Fire (Musical Theme for November 22)

I’m not happy with the way I handled this theme, but it was either this or sit it out. I’ve sat out most of today on many levels, as my personal fire is in short supply today. Luckily, I won’t always feel this way. So I’ll post this, knowing tomorrow will be different, if not downright better.

Fire and Rain (James Taylor)

Set Fire to the Rain   (Adele)

I’m on Fire (Bruce Springsteen)

Mother Earth is Burning   (Aloid)

We Didn’t Start the Fire  (Billy Joel)

This Fire    (Franz Ferdinand)  

Songwriters: HUNTLEY, ALEXANDER PAUL KAPRANOS / MCCARTHY, NICHOLAS JOHN / HARDY, ROBERT / THOMPSON, PAUL ROBERT
Eyes, boring a way through me
Paralyse, controlling completely
Now there is a fire in me
A fire that burns

This fire is out of control
I’m going to burn this city
Burn this city
This fire is out of control
I’m going to burn this city
Burn this city
This fire is out of control
I’m going to burn this city
Burn this city
This fire is out of control
I’m going to burn it, I’ll burn it
I, I, I’ll burn it down
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/franz-ferdinand-this-fire-lyrics.html ]
Eyes, burning a way through me
Overwhelm, destroying so sweetly
Now, there is a fire within me
A fire that burns

This fire is out of control
I’m going to burn this city
Burn this city
This fire is out of control
I’m going to burn this city
Burn this city
This fire is out of control
Then I, I’m out of control
And I burn,

Oh, how I burn for you
Burn, oh how I burn for you
Burn, how I
Burn, how I
Burn, oh how I…

This fire is out of control,
I’m gonna burn this city,
Burn this city…

Raging Fire

Raging Fire
Can you see the licking flame
Waiting for its time
Its increasing energy
Preparing for the prime
Fed up with your boring prate
All senses gettin’ lost
Second to none our flame shall rouse
Just like a growing host
Raging Fire burning down the walls
Raging Fire the rebellion force
Raging Fire all across the land
Raging Fire fights in self-defense
The anger grows on and on
The young sand up and fight
No more lies and censorship
All oppressed sand tight
Knights of fortune and dictators
They can’t stand this heat
We know what we want from life
beware we break your greed
Raging Fire burning down the walls
Raging Fire the rebellion force
Raging Fire all across the land
Raging Fire fights in self-defense
Wake up break the silence
Come on join our league
We must stand defiant
To dethrone the breed
[Solo]
Raging Fire burning down the walls
Raging Fire the rebellion force
Raging Fire all across the land
Raging Fire fights in self defense
Raging Fire
