[Verse 1]
Oh, sweet thing
Zion doesn't love you
And Babylon don't love you
But you love everything.
Oh, you saint
America don't love you
So I could never love you
In spite of everything

[Pre-Chorus]
In the dark of this place
There's the glow of your face
There's the dust on the screen
Of this broken machine
And I can't help but feel
That I've made some mistake
But I let it go
Ya Hey (x3)

[Chorus]
Through the fire and through the flames
(Ya hey x2, what do you eh ya hey x2)
You won't even say your name
(Ya hey x2, what do you eh ya hey x2)
Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Only "I am that I am"
But who could ever live that way?
(Ya Hey x2)
What do you eh? Ya Hey
What do you? you

[Verse 2]
Oh,
The motherland don't love you
The fatherland don't love you
So why love anything?
Oh, good God
The faithless, they don't love you
The zealous hearts don't love you
And that's not gonna change

[Pre-Chorus]
All the cameras and files
All the paranoid styles
All the tension and fear
Of a secret career
And I can't help but feel
That you see the mistakes
But you let it go
Ya Hey (x3)

[Chorus]

[Middle 8]
Outside the tents, on the festival grounds
As the air began to cool, and the sun went down
My soul swooned, as I faintly heard the sound
Of you spinning Israelite's
Into 19th Nervous Breakdown

[Chorus]

[Refrain]
Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Only "I am that I am"
But who could ever live that way?
(Ya Hey x2)
What do you eh? Ya Hey
What do you? you
