Fields of Flame burn across the land
Destruction torched by the Villain's hand
Not content to destroy your home .
To lay claim to all You own.
He's driven by lust, insanity and greed -
All under the banner "Oh! To be free!"
What will make him stop and listen -
To realise after it is all gone and missing,
When nothing's left - no more to steal
Who will provide his daily meal?
When his children are sick - tell me where
Will he go for medical care?
Where will his children go to school?
There are none ! Destroyed by this Fool!
The shops have closed - the grocery store
Has no food to sell here any more.
No money to spend - no work to do
Fields of Fire have done this to You!
The land's burned Black, now Barren and Bare.
Yet the Villain doesn't care.
He's been promised - told land is a right -
He's told just to take - and if need fight!
Don't work for what you want or need
Take enough to satisfy your greed!
So the Flames burn in your field of dreams
I wonder what it really means .
