Dance in the Ashes


Theres a fire growing, but you didnt light the match

theres a fire growing, but you didnt light the match

There’s no way of stopping now, its spreading too fast

so let it burn, let it burn,  let it all burn down

 

This building we called holy yeah its all coming down

this building we called holy yeah its all coming down

and G-d wont come and save it, so you better get right out

and let it burn, let it burn, let it all burn down

and in the ashes we find love

 

The library is tinder, and theres no use saving it

the libraries now tinder, there no use saving it

The books are tales of pain and fear, from years of harmful shit

so let it burn, let it burn, let it all burn down

 

Theres a gospel thats buried, deep inside these walls

There’s a gospel thats buried, deep inside these walls

you see love’s truth: its fireproof, so theres no need for pause just

let it burn, let it burn, let it all burn down

and in the ashes we find love

 

Your heart is at the center of this temple on fire

in a building built by hurt and guilt that desperately requires

a pyroclastic moment of destructive prophecy

to show you love is all around, waiting for you to be

 

dance free in the ashes

Live free in the ashes

get lost in the ashes of what you once believed

dance free in the ashes

live free in the ashes

get lost in the ashes, where grace can set you free
