Mad at Gravity

Reign of Fire - Burn!

I love both: the movie and the band. Mad at Gravity only released on single album but it is one of the best debut albums ever in my opinion. The movie Reign of Fire has always been one of my all time favorites for the costumes, plot idea and execution.

Here is a live song / video compilation from Mad at Gravity / Reign of Fire. This is NOT the original traler.

Mad at Gravity was only active between 2000 and 2003 as singer and song writer Lynn Johnston buggered off for reasons of artistic differences with the band. Two of their songs got really famous as they were selected for the Hollywood flick Reign of Fire featuring Christian Bale and Matthew McConaughey (in my opinion his best performance ever!).

Lynn remained idle for the longest time (really sad this) and only comes out of the hole these days with some self recorded clips. Voice is still there and he's still got it but a new album doesn't seem to be in the works very soon. Below one of his latest feeds, enjoy.

Lyrics:

 

These embers burn down low
And with my face aglow
You are all I know
Set this place on fire
Let the flames rise higher
As they reach the ceiling
At your feet I'm kneeling
Drawing ever near
My cause revealed as clear
Yes I burn for you here
Set this place on fire
Let the flames rise higher
As they reach the ceiling
At your feet I'm kneeling
With every trailing plume
Know it bears me home
I would give it all
Yes, I would give it all...(x3)
Set this place on fire
Let the flames rise higher
As they reach the ceiling
At your feet I'm kneeling
With every trailing plume
Know it bears me home
Let it burn....(x2)

These embers burn down lowAnd with my face aglowYou are all I know
Set this place on fireLet the flames rise higherAs they reach the ceilingAt your feet I'm kneeling
Drawing ever nearMy cause revealed as clearYes I burn for you here
Set this place on fireLet the flames rise higherAs they reach the ceilingAt your feet I'm kneelingWith every trailing plumeKnow it bears me home
I would give it allYes, I would give it all...(x3)
Set this place on fireLet the flames rise higherAs they reach the ceilingAt your feet I'm kneelingWith every trailing plumeKnow it bears me home
Let it burn....(x2)
