FIRE DOWN BELOW song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

Dancing every night
as if that would make it right
ten thousand years of slavery
only 200 that are free

They say all men are brothers
come from different mothers
one skin is like the other
you know that isn't so

Martinique is built
on top of a volcano
when the lava breaks
there's only one way it can go

someday the dam will burst
and the mountain it will blow
cause everybody knows
there's a fire down below

Eustatius and Saba Nevis
Saint Lucia St Vincent
Kick 'em Jenny Pelee and
Granada

Martinique is built
on top of a volcano
and everybody knows
there's a fire down below

When you're in the bread line
you might as well be dead blind
though you've committed no crime
they won't let you in the dough

Martinique is built
on top of a volcano
when the lava breaks
there's only one way it can go

someday the dam will burst
and the mountain it will blow
cause everybody knows
there's a fire down below

I see this as a metaphor for the oppressed who have waited for so long for justice and always get the shaft. Lots to think about in this song.
