The Boys Who Build Fire

winter is cold, fire is warm
wood must be cut into the firmament
and lit beneath the storms
of winter

boys are alive, life is amazing
up on the mountain clouds are singing
just like the music
the music of boys who build fire

(chorus)
sorry
we are so sorry
we are your sorrow
we give you words
you cannot hold words
we are so sorry

spring is a promise, soon be upon us
we will be reaching up again
the days will grow longer
we'll sing together

they will build a fire, burning the choir
god is in the embers
and we will remember
the boys who build fire

(chorus)
sorry
we are so sorry
we are your sorrow
we give you words
you cannot hold words
we are so sorry

winter is cold
we are so sorry
fire is warm
we are so sorry
wood must be cut
we are so sorry
into the firmament
we are so sorry
and lit beneath the storms
we are so sorry
so sorry in winter
we are so sorry

spring is a promise, soon be upon us
we will be reaching up again
the days will grow longer
we'll sing together

we'll build a fire, burning the choir
god is in the embers
and we will remember
the boys who build fire
the boys who build fire
the boys who build fire
we will remember
the boys who build fire


In the video, Rodriguez said troops at a base in the valley were responding to a rocket attack and dispatched attack helicopters to the location they were told the rockets came from. He said the helicopters thought they were engaging insurgents, but it later turned out they were boys from a nearby village who were cutting firewood.
