Lyrics
:

Let me put my arms around you 
Give me refuge in your soul 
I have drunk from fire water 
Free spirits rising in the world 

The new moon rises from the darkness 
Lord I need a healing prayer 
Give me a medicine for fever 
Give me the cure, give me the cure so I can see

Raw 
Burnt back to the bone 
Raw 
You gotta leave this child alone 
Raw 
I ain't got no home 
I�m Burnt right back 
Burnt right back to the bone 

I am falling, I am falling 
Feels like I�m fixin' to die 
Wild, wild horses could not drag me away
From this earth to heavens gate

Raw 
Burnt back to the bone 
Raw 
You gotta leave this child alone 
Raw 
I ain't got no home 
I�m Burnt right back 
Burnt right back to the bone 

Running like a river 
Rolling like a train 
Free spirits rising 
In the world today 

Free spirits rising in the world

Raw 
Burnt back to the bone 
Raw 
You'd better leave this child alone 
Raw 
I ain't got no home
Raw

Raw 
Burnt back to the bone 
Raw 
You'd better leave this child alone 
Raw 
I ain't got no home
Raw

Running like a river 
Rolling like a train 

Raw
Why don't we do it
Why don't we do it
Why don't we do it in the raw

You'd better leave this child alone
Come on baby
Come on baby

Mike Peters Notes
:The title track, the theme, the attitude. This is the heart of The Alarm in the nineties. Laid bare for all to see. Rising from the confusion of a year of change, personal tragedy and triumph. “Free spirit rising in the world today”. This track sets the scene for the whole album, acoustic and electric. I wanted a song that would cut to the bone, a song that would reflect an attitude. We’ve all grown older and wiser in a very short time, and with experience we’ve learnt to see through the confusion that surrounds us. We certainly won’t be taking any bullshit anymore and hopefully we won’t be giving any out.
(Shelter official fanzine, 1991)
