The end of Fire goes into a jam, one rift of which is from the begining of Scarlet. the rest is bobby fuckin with his wah pedal and the drums getting louder. it is definitely a fade out tease, not scarlet. They make it seem like the rhythm devils are getting their time, but then it goes quiet and brent shines through the weirdness with the first chords of Don't need Love. Just my opinion, I really don't think that the post fire jam should be called Scarlet.
