In time when dinosaurs walked the earth
When the land was swamp and caves where home
In an age when prize possession was fire
To search for landscapes men would roam

Then the tribes they came to steal the fire
And the wolves they howled into the night
As they fought a viscious angry battle
To save the power of warmth and light

Drawn by quest for fire
They searched all through the land
Drawn by quest for fire
Discovery of man

And they thought that when the embers died away
That the flame of life had burnt and died
Didn't know the sparks that made the fire
Were made by rubbing stick and stone

So they ploughed through forest and swamps of danger
And they fought the cannibal tribes and beasts
In the search to find another fire
To regain the power of light and heat

Drawn by quest for fire
They searched across the land
Drawn by quest for fire
Discovery of man
