I come to you with strange fire
I make an offering of love
The incense of my soul is burned
By the fire in my blood

I come with a softer answer
To the questions that lie in your path
I want to harbor you from the anger
Find a refuge from the wrath

This is a message, a message of love
Love that moves from the inside out
Love that never grows tired
I come to you with strange fire, fire

Mercenaries of the shrine
Now who are you to speak for God?
With haughty eyes and lying tongues
And hands that shed innocent blood

Now who delivered you the power
To interpret calvary
You gamble away our freedom
To gain your own authority

Find another state of mind
Reach out to grab hold
Strange fire burns
With the motion of love

When you learn to love yourself
You will dissolve all the stones that are cast
Now you will learn to burn the icing sky
To melt the waxen mask

I said to have the gift of true release
There's a peace that will take you higher
I come to you with my offering
I bring you strange fire

This is a message, a message of love
Love that moves from the inside out
Love that never grows tired
I come to you with strange fire
Fire, fire
Come to you with strange fire
