How do you pick up the pieces
When they are shattered beyond repair
How do you hold it together
When no part of our life is still fair

Hope feels like a milestone around us
Dragging you right through the mire
Fear is a pain like a needle
Piercing and bringing the tears

And all we can see is the Black Fire
Insidiously bringing its friends
And all we can do is move forward
Hoping against hope till the end

And sorrow is a place where we live now
Sorrow for all that’s been lost
And all we can see is the Black Fire
Every day lived in desperate fear

And where is the help and the hindrance
Where is the path we can tread
Now we follow on a road so unspoken
And we start all our days filled with dread

And all I can see is the Black Fire
Bringing us down to our knees
And all I can see is the Black Fire
The Black Fire between you and me…
