standing outside the fire

standing outside the fire
i look in to see my friends
i wonder where they’ve been
since i’ve been
standing outside the fire

standing outside the fire
i wonder if something’s wrong
i’m not there with them
why are they inside while i’m
standing outside the fire

standing outside the fire
i see the turmoil and dysfunction
of all of those inside
why must it happen to them when i’m
standing outside the fire

standing outside the fire
i here my friends plea for freedom
why can’t they have it
i’ve got my freedom right here
standing outside the fire

standing outside the fire
i’ve got so much more
but why aren’t we equal
i can’t help it that i’m
standing outside the fire

standing outside the fire
i don’t want to go in
i’ll stay right here
right here where i am
standing outside the fire
