Fire In A Untame Place 

I am a fire in an untamed place 

Light and heat to nurture the grace

Like a badger caged in the night 

You might thrash and bite out of freight 

But you feel through these feet

My roots run deep 

A tree to shelter from the storm

A fire to keep warm

But I won’t dissipate into ash

If I go you know I’m coming back 

The eternal return of the whisper of the wood

In these concrete landscape you know we stand where forests stood

I’m sat in a tree by a river

Who knows what boundlessness will deliver 

In this place of signs without symbols 

With no identicals or anything to resemble 

Each gust of wind is unique 

So abandon the bleak

Because you are the wind and the fire and the rain and the roots of the tree

Born condemned to be free

Immersed in the world, full of what is beautiful and wild

So run free child 

Dance upon the earth from your birth for all that it’s fucking worth

Like a song bird in flight 

Singing to chase away the night
