I am born in the reeds, I'm an idea of magnitude
Giving birth to itself ad infinitum
I am Jefferson's torch in a bright, stellar majesty

Oh I'm burning, oh I'm burning, oh I'm burning
Yes I'm burning, oh I'm burning, yes I'm burning for thee

We were measured in the dark by timetabled tragedy
There's a real turn of age in disaster
Now I'm firing a well our politicians gave to ruin

'Till I'm burning, oh I'm burning, yes I'm burning
Oh I'm burning, oh I'm burning, yes I'm burning for thee

River run run run run run run run river through me
Through the mud mud mud mud mud
Let me feel, let me feel, let me feel you

Oh I'm burning, oh I'm burning, oh I'm burning
Yes I'm burning, oh I'm burning, oh I'm burning for thee

River run run run run run run run river through me
Through the mud mud mud mud mud
Let me feel, let me feel, let me feel you

Now come out from your cups, find your love in the doorways
Have a care to fill the vessel of your heart
Hold me tight through the storms
And the winds of revolution

And always burning, oh he's burning, oh he's burning
Oh he's burning, yes he's burning, oh he's burning
Oh he's burning, yes he's burning, oh he's burning for thee
