Mountain Fire

The water in the air moistens my clothes
But doesn’t quite soak through to my bones
If we wait till its dark perhaps we could grab a piece of the moon
But right now it feels like we’re caught in some strange kind of gloom

If we look, do you think we’d see them way down below
Waving their hands amid the orange of the fire’s glow
We should make a camp, and wait for the moon to show his face
Here on the mountainside, we can take solace in a warm embrace

Inis Bó Finne seems distant to me
From up here, do you think I could jump it easily
As you know, I’ve got a mighty spring in my step
Or would I fall and drown beneath some unfathomable depth?

There is a wildness abounding in the tense atmosphere
That is bubbling up between us and manifesting itself in some kind of manic fear
I am astonished by the evil in your scowl
And the eerie sound of your wolfing howl

You psyched me out with those incandescent eyes
I felt the burning bursting out of my insides
And we were both engulfed by flames
A result of your hypnotic rage

Our fire then quenched suddenly
With not enough oxygen to sustain our blaze indefinitely
We returned to our temporal state
And breathed the mountain air again
