The Lyrics

Wildfires blackening
Oh so much of our land
Nature's own balancing,
Yet, greedy's her hand

Burning Down,
More and more
Burning Down,
What God grew
Burning Down, turning to ashes,
Hills and valleys, we knew

Burning Down, Burning Down,
Burning Down, turning to ashes,
Hills and valleys we knew

In California, Wyoming, and Idaho
In Arizona, and in Utah, too

Burning Down, in Colorado
High flames red and blue

Burning Down, Burning Down,
Burning Down, turning to ashes
The good land we knew

Moments of carelessness,
Just a spark in the drought
Campfires, wrong places,
Then, not put out

Burning Down,
More and more
Burning Down
What God grew
Burning Down, turning to ashes
Hills and valleys we knew

Burning Down, Burning Down,
Burning Down, turning to ashes
The gardens God grew..
