One man stood from the rest, Was compelled to confess. CHORUS I’m gonna light me on fire. Flames of truth are burning me. I’m gonna light me a fire. The world will come to see, This truth that’s changed in me. The chapel ceilings austere. No man would dare question Rome. The superstition and fear, Was filled with fairies and gnomes. The door of Wittenberg, The truth was finally heard. I’m gonna light me on fire. Flames of truth are burning me. I’m gonna light me a fire. The world will come to see, This truth that’s set you free. I can not, I will not recant. I can not, I will not recant. Here I stand. Five centuries have come and gone, His flame has not been forgotten. On Sundays I sing his song, The mighty fortress is our god. With growing certainty, This truth prevails in me. CHORUS I’m gonna light me on fire. Flames of truth are burning me. I’m gonna light me a fire. The world will come to see, This truth that’s set you free.
