See the fire and watch it burn
So many lessons we can learn
With brutal beauty, cleansing all
Into its spell we all could fall

All things are taken by its will
It’s thrilling for it’s never still
It hypnotises as it glows
But never kind or mercy shows

Uncompromising power so raw
It knows no bounds and has no law
An orange villain, no disguise
The closest witness also dies

Then treat with care this violent friend
He touches things, they’ll never mend
Respect him – he’s no fool or liar
His power is awesome, learn from fire
