And that one got away

And this one it did not

And that one it was cold

And this one it was hot


And this one walks that way

And that one only jogs

And this one only works

No they never seem to stop


And this one likes to breathe

They do it all the time

And that one likes to grieve

I see it in their eyes


And this one never healed

And that one never hurt

And this one wears a tie

And that one wears a skirt


And this one always leaks

And it drives the neighbors mad

And this one always beeps

When the smoke comes off the pan


And this one likes to sleep

Yeah, they always stay inside

And this one likes to speak

A din of chatter in their mind


And this one breaks away

All that's left is just a chain

Just a chain, just a chain

Ah-hah-uh


Fire, fire, fire

Emancipation


Liar, liar, liar

This is out nation


Fire, fire, fire

Emancipation


Liar, liar

Oh –


The thing you threw away

Is now what you need the most

You stumble with the words

With which once you used to boast


In the corner of your eye

You catch your longest lock of hair

It's twisted off the side

And it feels like it could tear


The pleasantries are done

Your shoelaces untied

The tender part of skin

Stitched and sutured long the sides


In the corners of your eyes

All that's left is just a chain

Just a chain, just a chain

Ah-hah-uh


Fire, fire, fire

Emancipation


Liar, liar, liar

This is our nation


Fire, fire, fire

Emancipation


Liar, liar, liar

This is....


And I can't see too well

See you too well now


But I will ring my bell

Ring it far and LOUD


And all your strings are pulled

Pulled and cut away

As autumn leaves, they fall 

That one got away...


The sound of


Fire, fire, fire

Emancipation


Liar, liar, liar

This is our nation


Fire, fire, fire

Emancipation


Liar, liar, liar

This is our nation


Fire, fire, fire

Emancipation


Liar, liar, liar

This is our nation


Fire, fire, fire

Emancipation


Just a chain, just a chain


Of wires
