Wall of Fire

Ray Davies, released on Phobia, © Davray Music Ltd. 1993

.

Standing at the end of the horizon

Looking at another setting sun

Nature gave us all these toys to play with

But we've abused them, each and every one

They stretched the chord, snapped the wire

Lit the fuse but can't retire

We're going to the wall of fire

Tip-toeing on the great high wire

Let's have a real fire

.

The city slickers built the great illusion

Now they're the first to crumble in the sun

Now we're going through the wall

Let's see the flames before we fall

We're going through the wall of fire

Let's have a real fire

Tip-toeing on the great high wire

Through the wall of fire

.

We drove on many rocky roads together

Through the storms and hurricanes we rode

Unified so no one could destroy us

We stretched the bounds

But always kept the code

Liberals shout and cause concern

Forget next week while we all burn

Let's run right through the wall of fire

Let's have a real fire

Death-defying while the flames grow higher

Through the wall of fire

Let's go through the wall of fire

Running through the wall of fire

.
