about

We are so happy to finally present, after many months of hard work, the #FACTORfunded video for our new single, Fires, Fires, Fires.
This song was written last year while the fires were burning in Fort McMurray. The song’s lyrics speak for themselves.

lyrics

I was listening to the radio
On the night after our last show
News of disaster
One after the other
Then interwoven melodies
Soft and personal
Heartbreaks and jealousy
Romantic misery
Sweet things
Escapist songs
Then a hit of reality
When the news comes on

How do you write a love song in times like these
Simple little love song in times when
Big troubles in the world, spinning round, just dumb it down
How to write a love song in times like these

I met you on the front lines
You were just like me
We lost another battle
Predictably
With fists clenched we carried on
You had never felt so strong
And I had never felt so weak
Something rushing over me

How do you write a love song in times like these
Simple little love song in times when
Big troubles in the world, spinning round, just dumb it down
How to write a love song in times like these

Do you listen to the radio
Fires, fires, fires
And where are we gonna go
If this thing transpires
And the violence
Is never caused by the anarchist
It’s cause someone wants control
Everybody wants control

How do you write a love song in times like these
Simple little love song in times when
Big troubles in the world, spinning round, just dumb it down
How to write a love song in times like these

Do you listen to the radio

Fires, fires fires
