this song is especially dedicated to all the men at Engine 73 in the South Bronx, but also to all the FDNY.

We all draw our own conclusions
But you may not have seen the men lining up in blue
And we all know someone who knows someone who
But you may not have one - who's coming home to you from...

There, the fire is still burning
There you are still digging through,
There, every day you are standing
Everyday you are falling
and you have your brothers waiting there for you

Every man there is somebody's baby
And someone's tender heart to rest upon
Every man among you held his head up high
Walked into the sky
You think of them as gone, but there are...

There, the fire is still burning
There you are still digging through,
There, every day you are standing
Everyday you are falling
and you have your brothers waiting there for you

I don't think about the bigger picture
I don't think about you coming home
I don't think about how fragile we all are
I don't think about flesh and bone...

There, the fire is still burning
There you are still digging through,
There, every day you are standing
Everyday you are falling
and you have your brothers waiting there for you
