10. Forest Fire

See You
by Josh Wilson


He’s not bulletproof
Don’t let him fool you
His laugh is a lie
He’s dying inside
From the sticks and stones somebody threw

Our tongues are like matches
Our ears are like trees
Our words are like sparks
On dry summer leaves
It doesn’t take much
For the flames to rise
And turn a soul
Into a forest fire

She’s not half as strong, no
As she’d like to let on
She smiles, but she knows
She can’t take one more blow
From the hate that she’s heard for so long

Be careful
Be careful what you say

Behind the Song:
"“Forest Fire” is a fun, swingy sort of tune, with a serious lyric. I think mixing it up like that makes you pay more attention. It’s about the power of words and how they can do a lot of damage, so be careful what you say. Also, we wanted to work fire into the song somehow, so the loop at the beginning is made from matches and matchboxes and everything to do with fire. Paul Mabury blew the match out to get that sound... the whole first part of that song is all those sounds." - Josh Wilson
