Andy (on the demo): “From the sublime to the sublemon. This hastily knocked up recording from '83 finds me wrestling with alto sax, faulty guitar and pyrex bowl. I appear to be losing the contest.”

LyricsEdit

Great fire burning

You supplied the spark

Fires burning spreading through the ark

Eyes bring water


Great fire burning

Great fire burning through

Great fire burning through my house

Great fire burning through my house and...
