Ashes to the Wind

This song is by Manfred Mann's Earth Band and appears on the box set Odds & Sods: Mis-takes & Out-takes (2005).

We're gonna build us a fire
It's gonna circle the earth
Burn all the worn-out lies
They handed us since birth
Burn the poison from the fruit
Burn the evil from the root

Scatter the ashes to the wind
Scatter the ashes to the wind
Scatter the ashes to the wind
Scatter the ashes to the wind

We're gonna build us a fire
It's gonna light up the sea
Burn all the cages down
Set the people free
Burn the poison from the pen
Evil from the hearts of man

We're gonna build us a fire
It's gonna light up the blue
Love is a torch of (right?)
Let's start living the truth
And burn the poison from the fruit
Burn the evil from the root

Scatter the ashes to the wind
Scatter the ashes to the wind
Scatter the ashes to the wind
Scatter the ashes to the wind
