lyrics

I build the highways. I build the roads. I move the earth. I carry the load. I build the bridges to connect the broken land. I did it like you said. I did it like we planned.

I build the engine. I lay the track. I haul the rail. I put it on my back. I light the fire to light the way. Build a world over a lifetime. Watch it burn down in a day.

Oh oh oh the fire again. For the children of men. Oh oh oh the fire again. Oh oh oh.

I get maybe five hours of sleep, and spend four hours on the train. My body aches, but I ignore the pain. You ignore my cries. You get all my disdain. I sound the whistle. Signal sent in vain.

My wife at home with a baby on the way. See my wife for maybe three hours a day. And I’ve got debts that no honest man can pay. Build a world over a lifetime. Watch it burn down in a day.

Oh oh oh the fire again. For the children of men. Oh oh oh the fire again. Oh oh oh.

Might not come tomorrow. Might not come today. But one way or another, there’s gonna be hell to pay.
