Fire Walk With Me (REM #5)
water forms into rain
she's dancing in the fire
freeing embers in the wind.
rain in river glows
dives into a crystal lake
water reborn into rain
spirits fly through the sky
slowly dissolve into the night.
her dress dispelled to blaze
the tulle scattered embers as she spins.
in flames a ballerina dress
gliding on the water is the lady of the lake.
water floats reborn to rain
spirits soaring through the night
dancing swiftly through the sky,
under stars’ glow, she is shining
the city bursts aflame
and soars away in
fiery cinders stolen by the wind.
water reborn into flame
spirits drifting through the sky
red eyes glowing in the night.
fire starts to roar,
man in the mask sells roses by the shore,
flames on frozen waters.
alone the ghost boat wanders.
see the lady of the lake
look how she glows,
watch where she goes,
walk through fire crackling,
wind leaping through a sea of smoke.
mask is melting, rose is dead,
whispering voices surrounded his head.
the water frees and the flames roar
to form music down by the shore
mask is gone, a siren's song
is calling through the tunnel.
fire blazing on the river,
fire burning overnight,
fire overthrowing shadows
cascade the road to death with light.
spirits hide in hollow trees
their laughs floating through the breeze
as boat floats on silent water,
dead rose, it floats alone.
fire water, water fire.
nautical chandeliers will pave the way
to the very end of all days…
