about

Fire is a reflection on the American struggle for peace and equality in Milwaukee WI

lyrics

Pulled over in the night
Two men in a car near midnight
Waiting for a fire in Milwaukee

For a purpose yet unknown
But the bullets they were thrown
Starting up a fire in Milwaukee

Gasoline is burning bright
Silhouettes run in the light
And your heart breaks in two for another
Another mother sits at home
She is waiting all alone
Cause her boys not coming home tonight

They say "he had a gun"
They ask "why did he run?"
Driving with a stolen gun Milwaukee

But its really not the case
When the law gives to the chase
Is it Judge, Jury, and Execution in Milwaukee?

Gasoline is burning bright
Silhouettes run in the light
And your heart breaks in two for another
Another mother sits at home
She is waiting all alone
Cause her boys not coming home tonight

Gasoline is burning bright
Silhouettes run in the light
And your heart breaks in two for another
Another mother sits at home
She is waiting all alone
Cause her boys not coming home tonight
Cause her boys not coming home tonight
Why's her boy not coming home tonight?
