Going Up When Everyone Else Was Coming Down
ike soldiers
Marching into their own demise
300 firemen ascended the stairs
We will never forget those who went up
When everyone else was coming down
Their fates swirled around them
A cloud of smoke before their eyes
Scolding blisters, intense, searing
Around them the smoldering remains, crashing down
Like soldiers they died for their country
They died putting out the fire
And how the fire blazes in our hearts
It burns with fury, rage, uncertainty and hope
Earth has its ashes and heaven its hearts
