Song Lyric Sunday 11/5/17 – Fight Fire With Fire

Sorry, this is going to be a quick post and run for Song Lyric Sunday this week. It’s NASCAR Playoffs weekend at Texas Motor Speedway and I’m on the go with very little time to blog. As such, this is what you get. I promise I’ll be back to normal next week when I’m not running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

Still though, fire is an appropriate topic – it’s still pushing 90 degrees F (32 degrees C) this weekend in No Limits, TX so it’s still quite the fireball – can’t put my “Davy” Dukes away for the year just yet now can I? Alas, this was the first song that came to mind for the prompt and I featured it before on a free-form SLS (that got no attention so it’ll be fresh for most) but it is what it is. It’s a little bit out-of-character for this band which is known for somewhat lighter music while this song is really heavy and hard-rock type, but it’s a great song nonetheless.

Here then is “Fight Fire With Fire” by Kansas (written by Dino Elefante and John Elefante):

There’s a hole in the wall
With a light shining in
And it’s letting me know to get up
It’s time to begin

Oh there is nothing to lose
‘Cause it’s already lost
In a runaway world
Of confusion
I’m not gonna take it

That’s why I’ll fight fire with fire
Oh I’m burning inside and my heart is a-cryin’
Fire with fire
And I don’t want to lose this flamin’ desire

Standing alone
In a crowded room
I can feel a chill in the air
I’m shakin’

I’m miles away
I want to cry out loud
I want to fight ’til the end
And I won’t let ’em take me alive

And you know I’ll fight fire with fire
Oh I’m burning inside and my heart is a-cryin’
Fire with fire
And I don’t wanna lose this flamin’ desire

Fire with fire
Oh I’m out of control and I want you to know I’m fightin’
Fire with Fire
And I’m never gonna lose this flamin’ desire

Fire with fire
Oh I’m burning inside and my heart is a-cryin’
Fire with fire
And I’m never gonna lose this flamin’ desire

Fire with fire
I’m out of control and I want you to know I’m fightin’
Fire with Fire
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa 
Fire

There you have it. I’m back to the racetrack. Have a good Sunday and keep cool!

  1. For some reason, my youngest son is a huge Kansas fan. We listened to them on the way home from dinner last night. I hadn’t heard this one before, though, so thanks for sharing. I liked that it was a little more rock than what I’ve heard them do. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
