Fire In the Sky

The darkest of deeds
Have been done with the best intentions
Human beings always bleed
When great minds test their inventions

Pull the trigger, key the button
With your anxious, bloody finger
Bombs away, everyone
There’s no need for the cameras here

(Chorus)
The fire in the sky says we lost the war
Say what you will
But I won’t fight anymore
There’s no humanity in your intent
I won’t proceed with what you’re asking of me
I won’t feed the fire

Ready your weapons
Have them loaded and ready to fire
Salute the veterans
Don’t worry about their faulty wires

Nowhere is safe
From our inevitable intervention
There’s no region in space
That’s not the spark of our ambition

Plant the flag
Atop the most sacred of enemy grounds
Burn the Reichstag
But don’t report a damn thing you found

If you see something you don’t like
Then just duck and keep your head down
If you’re not in the mood for playing with knives
Just burn the goddamned place to the ground

The lyrics are pretty strong up until after the chorus, the two verses after it aren't too good, but it picks itself up with the last two.
Worst verse imho:

Fire in the Sky is also the title of my band's instrumental

It's probably just me, but I don't like "key the button". I would much rather use a word like "press" or "push", which also contrast with "pull".

(Chorus)
The fire in the sky says we lost the war
Say what you will
But I won’t fight anymore
There’s no humanity in your intent
I won’t proceed with what you’re asking of me
I won’t feed the fire

"Nothing is safe" sounds better than "Nowhere is safe". Also, I see what you did with "inevitable intervention" but I think it's too much crammed into one line. I would shorten that line unless you can make it work.

Plant the flag
Atop the most sacred of enemy grounds
Burn the Reichstag
But don’t report a damn thing you found

If you see something you don’t like
Then just duck and keep your head down
If you’re not in the mood for playing with knives
Just burn the goddamned place to the ground


For the most part, it's written very solidly.

I would change it to "A human being always bleeds", to make it flow better with the rhyme, but that just preference.

Pull the trigger and key the button
With your anxious and bloody finger
Bombs away everyone
There’s no need for the cameras here Great line!

Not sure how this would flow, here, unless you were going to slow down the tempo at this part. If you weren't, above are the changes I would make, simply prefence.

(Chorus)
The fire in the sky says we lost the war
Say what you will
But I won’t fight anymore
There’s no humanity in your intent
I won’t proceed with what you’re asking of me
I won’t feed the fire

Great chorus, but I would change "humanity" to "morality".

Ready your weapons
Have them loaded and ready to fire
Salute the veterans
Don’t worry about their faulty wires

I love this line.

Nowhere is safe
From our inevitable intervention
There’s no region in space
That’s not the spark of our ambition

Plant the flag
Atop the most sacred of enemy grounds
Burn the Reichstag
But don’t report a damn thing you found

I love this stanza, but I think some words should be added in places to make it flow better.

If you see something you don’t like
Then just duck and keep your head down
If you’re not in the mood for playing with knives
Just burn the goddamned place to the ground

Loving it.


Comments in bold.

Overall, I really loved it man. I like the refences and examples you scattered through it.
