The first Forthcoming Fire song ever written! A new and longer version appeared on the band's first full length album "Ekhnaton" in 1992. This version was never released again after the EP went out of stock and has never been available as a digital download before.


Open your eyes, wide open your mind
Blazing perception, how easy to find
Glowing new hope, unbelievable
Towers fall, unforgettable

A new awakening, a new kind of freedom
This is the burning of mental fire
Behold the glowing of a new mankind

This is the end of the night
This is my longing for light

Witness the rising of a blazing phoenix
The ashes of the old days is dead and gone
Do I hear time sound of a new crescendo?
I welcome time morning and a glowing new sun

Now, you may see, behold, what ever will be
Mother, what have you done?
You cry ’til our kingdom will come
Lord, renew the face of our mother nature

Don't waste the chance to light your fire
Don't cover your light in front of me
A new born hope is rising higher
Til the end of the night
We're gonna be free
