lyrics

we arrived
travelling different roads
but we all took the same exit
it brought us here
to the middle of nowhere
cause nowhere is where we're wanted
and the roads merged
and bled into the water
so we ferried across it
past the shipwrecks
to the campsite
with the stone-ringed the fire pit

where someone lit a match
where there a spark
where we ignited
just before dark

we were just like a brush fire
dancing and dangerous
all of us like a brush fire
so energetic; aimless

on the grill:
carrots, broccoli, & tofu
in our hands:
wine and cigarettes
the smoke rose
into a sky so dark
you could see distant satellites
were caught up
in their hi-beams:
when the sky exploded with fireweed
and emerald green
of juniper nettles
slicing through the crisp air

like someone lit a match
for there surely was a spark
yes, something ignited
there in the dark

and it was just like a brush fire
dancing and dangerous
everything like a brush fire
so energetic; aimless

and the match was lit
and our eyes were opened
and there were sparks
in our muscle tissues

we were like a brush fire
dancing and dangerous
all of us so much like a brush fire
so energetic; aimless

like a brush fire
like a brush fire.
