lyrics

The legend of the firebird
Is one of transformation
If you dare to take the journey
And you give the wolf his due

Let the flame inspire
For you are your own creation
Throw your fear upon the pyre
And let it rise as something new

So you think you don't burn bright enough?
I tell you it's not true

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down
Throw your fear upon the fire and burn it down
Throw your voice out to the wind
Feel the heat upon your skin
As you hunger, so begin
Burn it down

Last night you were dreaming
But you cannot quite remember
It's all dark and misty-seeming now
Like patterns in the sand

Wake to comets streaming
Kindled from a lonely ember
All your wishes colored gleaming
Are the stars held in your hand

Let them soar and let them smolder
May they never fall to land

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down
Throw your fear upon the fire and burn it down
Throw your stars into the sky
Let the darkness hear your cry
Teach the cinders how to fly
Burn it down

Voices whisper, "never"
Fear the fire will turn to ash
And they would hold you back forever
To protect you from the pain

A single blazing feather
Holds the heat of all your passion
Bring your head and hands together
Only hear the heart's refrain

Burn away the haunted shadows
It's your love that will remain

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down
Throw your fear upon the fire and burn it down
Throw your heart into the song
Feel the rhythm hot and strong
And the fire will sing along
Burn it down

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down
Throw your fear upon the fire and burn it down
Throw your heart into the song
Feel the rhythm hot and strong
Hear the fire sing along
Burn it down
