Flames In the darkness, flames of fright, run, 
 Run, Into the night,

 Men of fear, men who fight through the night, 
 A fire fight.

 Sadness and pain as the heat and smoke devour 
 Natures beauty,

 Who's to blame for this destruction placed upon all 
 Good men?

 They run, they hide, but where to hide, animals,' 
 Creatures of all kind,

 Death comes to visit, to take away the Innocent 
 Without feeling or care.

 Fix your eyes to the tears' from those whom see the 
 Land die and die,

 Look to the sky, watch as It rises, a picture of 
 Sadness in the smoke.

 The wind will blow but there will be no trees for 
 It to pass through,

 The grass you will not see, the animals' are gone.

 Some men do not stand anymore, they disappear with
 This tragedy

That must be forever remembered, some day we will 

 Learn to love This land that was created.

 Sadness In the smoke above these hills' that burn 
 For the world to see,

 Eyes must be opened before It's to late, before this 
 Land goes away.

               Keith Garrett
