"After the Fire" is a song by Carole & Tuesday The recorded version is entirely sung by them, while their "Grammy Scene ver." version of the song features guest vocals from Crystal.

Background and Writing

The song was written by the duo after they were selected to perform at the opening ceremony for the Mars' Grammys. To up the ante since they were the opening act, Crystal agreed to perform the song with them. The song is ultimately performed on Episode 22.

The song is about hope and new beginnings, wanting to fix the current mess that Mars' is in right now: Political terrorist attacks, immigrants being arrested and taken to Earth against their will, etc.

When asked what would be the theme of the song in episode 22: Just Like Heaven, Crystal answered:

The world is set to start changing rapidly and, as far as I can tell, not in a good way. It feels as if we’re heading for a world where you have to live quietly in the darkness. There are musicians who express how the world is, but I’d rather have a song about a light in the darkness.

Lyrics

The version listed here will include the portion sung by Crystal in the "Grammy Scene ver." of the song.

キャロル&チューズデイ(Vo. Nai Br.XX & Celeina Ann) x クリスタル (Vo. Lauren Dyson) 「After The Fire」 歌詞


[Verse 1: Nai Br.XX]
Glowing touchpaper
Your sparks fly all around
Out of controlling
You burn me to the ground

[Pre-Chorus: Nai Br.XX & Celeina Ann]
Where you gonna turn when
Your whole world is burning?
This is the beginning
Don't give up

[Chorus: Nai Br.XX & Celeina Ann]
'Cause after the fire, new maps are drawn
Nothing to cry for, new dreams are born
Out of the ruins, flowers will grow
People rebuilding, stone by stone
After the fire, fire, fire
After the fire, fire, fire

[Verse 2: Lauren Dyson]
The sky is glowing
Above the ruins
The walls are falling
A new beginning, beginning


[Chorus: Nai Br.XX, Celeina Ann & Lauren Dyson]
After the fire, new maps are drawn
Nothing to cry for, new dreams are born
Out of the ruins, flowers will grow
People rebuilding, stone by stone
'Cause after the fire, new maps are drawn
Nothing to cry for, new dreams are born
Out of the ruins, flowers will grow
People rebuilding, stone by stone
After the fire, fire, fire
After the fire, fire, fire
