lyrics

Sit by the fire and I’ll tell you a tale
Of something quite close to our hearts
Through thoughtless struggle we try to prevail
But this I would like to impart:
That when it comes to our oldest beliefs
In foundation there lies a flaw
To challenge with anger, to fight to survive
Is to hammer your head on the door

But it seems a little strange
That we refuse to change
Yeah I find it a little odd
That we can’t seem to learn
It’s like holding up the mirror
It’s holding up the mirror
It’s holding up the mirror
It’s like holding up the mirror

The lovers were loved, the haters were hated
That’s how the fairytale was
By disillusionment we have been baited
To feel justified in our cause
When the storm comes, batten down the hatches
Lock all the doors to the night
With tinderbox nerves and, and the striking of matches
Fire unto fire we will fight
Fire unto fire we will fight

But it seems a little strange
That we refuse to change
Yeah I find it a little odd
That we can’t seem to learn
It’s like holding up the mirror
It’s holding up the mirror
It’s holding up the mirror
It’s like holding up the mirror

What we do to each other, we do to ourselves
So it’s been said and it’s true

Isn’t it obvious?
It should be obvious
I think it’s obvious
Isn’t it obvious?
It’s obvious!
It’s obvious!
It’s obvious!
It’s obvious!
