Ci†y On Fire™ was first just an idea of a side project for Aaron Lee Thompson to explore and experiment with music whilst in the already successful Christian hip hop group www.facebook.com/lifesavingdecision.
Aaron got the name from a 2007 film called "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" which is a 2007 horror musical film directed by Tim Burton. The Band name stuck with him for over 4 years until it was birthed after his best friend and band mate Kevin Beebe (Founder of Life Saving Decision) was killed by a drunk driver on March 6th of 2011. www.facebook.com/kevinbeebe
The meaning of "City On Fire" had never really surfaced until May 1st when Aaron got lyrics for a self titled song "City On Fire". The song takes place in a dark night of the soul. A man's soul is related to that of a City, with streets, buildings, rooms etc... As with all Cities there are really nice areas and then you have run down bad areas. God wants to expose all of those dark bad areas in your soul and consume them with Holy Spirit Fire. Once God cleanses you of the sin and darkness in your soul, you can then start changing the world around you, be it your town, your City, your state and even country. Through God you can set your "City On Fire".
