Set the Fire to the Third Bar Lyrics
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
The distance from 'A' to where you'd be
It's only finger-lengths that I see
I touch the place where I'd find your face
My fingers in creases of distant dark...

To me this song is about long distance love.

Set the fire to the third bar is about being away from someone (who is possibly dead) and wanting them back so badly that you would burn down the town if you could see them again and not care about the consequences. It's a song about longing for someone who you used to know but you will probably never see again.
