Clockwork Bird - Wood Doesn't Burn Lyrics


Clockwork Bird – Wood Doesn’t Burn Lyrics

Astronauts got to the moon, surgeons can perform complicated surgical procedures,
We created the internet,
A civilization´s dream of having access to all knowledge…
Yet most of us, don´t know how some “simple” things work…
Fire, that´s where civilization started,
When we were able to make light into the darkness,
To scare the beasts away, to warm up, to find comfort…
But where is this comfort leading us?
Overcrowded cities, consuming our lives in senseless jobs,
In an endless quest for money, creating needs and fake fantasies,
Then feeding them, never fulfilling them…
We need to start the fire of revolution,
But first, we need to understand fire…

I just came here to tell you
That wood doesn’t burn
Are the gases expelled
When heated the ones that actually burn

We are only flesh and the city heats us,
And our dreams fuel it´s fire
What else do we need to realize
We are not comfy we´re simply burnt

Tinder and dry leaves are key to start a fire
Not only mass and a spark I also need air,
And you´re standing on my neck
I shouldn´t fall asleep with a fire going,

But it looks like everyone sleeps
I really want to sleep and my lids weigh a ton,
But it looks like i won´t sleep
I hear voices but nobody´s here

Beware of the girl with wooden eyes,
Seduces with just one look
A trippy trip to modern life,
What it´ll take for you to wake up

Tinder and dry leaves are key to start a fire
Not only mass and a spark I also need air,
And you´re standing on my neck
I just came to remind you that it takes a lot of work to stand alone
