Take a gander at these lyrics, they are definitely cryptic and a bit bizarre:
Oh my loving brother, when the world’s on fire/Don’t you want God’s bosom for to be your pillow/Hide me over in the rock of ages/Rock of ages cleft for me”
This is the chorus to a song called “The Fire Song” recorded by the Florida Boys on the album Up Tempo, which is one of the LPs I picked up in Branson. Don’t get me wrong, the song is performed expertly, and it is really catchy. I just can’t get over the lyrics on the chorus. And to be honest, the FB’s sound just a bit too happy while singing the lyrics “when the world’s on fire.” Just thought these were some of the more bizarre lyrics I’d ever heard.
