Fire in the sky.. by lowapproach Fire in the sky.. by lowapproach
When the dayís nearly over and evening is nigh
I sit on my porch and gaze at the sky
As the red fades to pink and the colors grow faint
Itís moments like this that I wish I could paint

If I was Namitjara or maybe Ken Done
Or maybe even a Darcy Doyle clone
Iíd look at the colors with an artistís trained eye
And capture forever the fire in the sky

As the sky turns from red, through yellow and blue
And a marvelous pallet of many toned hue
That changes so quickly as dayís last light fades
An ongoing picture of swift changing shades


Have no idea what those giant wooden structures are..
Thanks

Perfect placement of the sun. And yeah, the boldness of the colors is striking, to say the least.

Fire in the sky
out of the blue
and into the red depths,
Time for you and I
to try and fall asleep
in the bed they've made us,
All came crumbl'n down
tears in our eyes
as it rained confusion
the whole world has changed

I donít understand
how one can kill a man
in the name of peace,
thatís ridiculous

They say eye for an eye
so they fire from the sky
and they come out of nowhere
Time for you and I
to turn on the big screen
see whatís happnen'
And as those children die,
pawns in the game of
collateral damage,
The whole world goes mad

Standing here on quick sand,
the more we fight we sink
And vengeance gives us hope,
at least that what we think,
at least that what we think cause

As we make amends by
getting our revenge,
We sort nothing out,
just add to the doubt
and with God on both sides,
if death is justified,
whatever the name,
then we're all to blame

so as the spirits fly,
to honor those who've past,
we've got to get along,
while the time still last
Bury the hatchet deep
so we all can weep
and heal all this pain
so,so we can live again,
so,so we can live again 'cos

as we make amends by
getting our revenge,
We sort nothing out,
just add to the doubt
and God on both sides,
if death is justified,
whatever the name,
then we're all to blame
But I donít understand
how one can kill a man
in the name peace,
thatís ridiculous
But I understand
that I will defend
my family from
both sides of misery
