English term or phrase: fire walk with me
It's from Twin Peaks, from this rhyme (I would appreciate the whole rhyme, but it's a bit longish. That phrase will do):

"Through the darkness of future past; The magician longs to see; One chants out between two worlds; Fire, walk with me.

I'll catch you with my death bag; You may think I've gone insane; But I promise; I will kill again."
Vesa Ahola
