about

A special thank you to Bec Todd, Abraham TIlbury, Chris Richards, Zinia Chan, Zac Caughey, Tristan Hoogland & Matthew Agoglia for their guidance and support. To my mum for always being there for me.

“World On Fire” was originally recorded at Doggett Street Studios in 2013, as part of the Independent Music Project. The final version was then mixed and produced by Stephen Carmichael at his home studio.

lyrics

I'd rather give my love
To a time machine
To tick back the years
To the boy I used to be
I'd rather loose myself
Living for a dream
Won't be pushed to the ground
You won't take my breath from me

I breathe
I breathe

I won't be fooled by the lights
I won't be fooled by the aura of your love
This love is physical
Please don't hold me

Chorus

The world is on fire
The world
The world is on fire
The world is on fire

I was the person
I was looking for
In the wasteland
Of empty churches
What are we living for

You don't have to be a young man
To survive the war
Living for our body's intentions
While we lie dying on the floor

Chorus

The world is on fire
The world
The world is on fire
The world is on fire

Coda

We fight, our right
To love and loose
Whoever we choose

(repeated)
