Lyrics

(Source: Universal Mother)

She took my father from my life,
Took my sisters and brothers on.
I watched her torturing my child.
Feeble I was then, but now I'm grown.
Fire on Babylon,
Oh, yes, a change has come.
Fire on Babylon,
Fire,
Fire,
Fire.
She's taken everything I liked.
She's taken every lover on.
And all along she gave me lies,
Just to make me think I loved her.
Fire on Babylon,
Oh, yes, a change has come.
Look what she did to her son,
Fire,
Fire,
Fire on.
Life's backwards, life's backwards,
People turn around.
The house is burned, the house is burned,
The children are gone.
FIRE!
FIRE!
Fire on Babylon,
Oh, yes, a change has come.
Fire on Babylon,
Fire,
Fire.
Fire on Babylon,
Oh, yes, a change has come,
Look what she did to her son,
Look what she did to her son,
Fire,
Fire,
Fire.

Produced by Sinéad O'Connor, John Reynolds, and Tim Simenon

The energy possessed by Sinead's vocals on Fire was almost impossible to contain, but we managed to trap it on tape somehow.
