lyrics

read all the words in this book before,
thought i'd discover something more,
peace for the soul, food for the mind,
lessons learned left behind.

burn this city, burn this city
burn this city to the ground

how did this all happen so fast?
started ahead, finishing last,
thoughts of a slowly aging man,
fading away wasn't part of the plan.

burn this city, burn this city,
burn this city to the ground,
the ground...

it all falls down
it all falls

i don't know how this started
i don't know what went wrong
i'm left here broken hearted
i'm crumbling to the ground

burn this city, burn this city,
burn this city to the ground,
the ground...

it all falls down
it all falls

somebody said it would end this way,
brick to dust and night to day.
somebody said we're supposed to die,
nobody told me exactly why.

burn this city, burn this city,
burn this city... down.

it all falls down
it all falls...
