Lets watch it burn
Lets watch it burn
Lets watch this city burn the world

Lets watch this city burn
From the skylines on top of the world
Till theres nothing left of her
Lets watch this city burn the world

My body doused in ash with two empty cans of gas
The only evidence they have is a police sketch of my mask
And it's hard at times to ask if you could save my heart for last
And it's hard to face the facts when the darkness fades to black

It's not just make believe, when they make me take a seat
And they put amphetamines in the air and make me breathe
So come on and grab your children, look out for burning buildings
And villains who pillage, they're killin' by the millions

And billions of people die for a lost cause
So now I pray to my nation destroyed under God
It's the end of the world
All my battles have been won but the war has just begun

Let's watch this city burn
From the skylines on top of the world
Till there's nothing left of her
Let's watch this city burn the world

The city looks so pretty do you wanna burn it with me?
Till the skies bleed ashes and the fuckin' skyline crashes
They catch us with the matches and ignite the flame
And all the hopes of a youth deemed fuckin' insane

They say take the pill, in God we trust, go and kill
God loves us as in life, as in death, breathing till there is no breath
I will not die in the night but in the light of the sun
With the ashes of this world in my lungs

But who am I to say let's all just run away
Grab your saints and pray and we'll burn this world today
It's the end of the world
As in Heaven, as in Earth, weve been dead since our birth

Let's watch this city burn
From the skylines on top of the world
Till there's nothing left of her
Let's watch this city burn the world

Let's watch it burn
Let's watch it burn

The city looks so pretty, do you wanna burn it with me?
The city looks so pretty, do you wanna burn it with me?
The city looks so pretty, do you wanna burn it with me?
The city looks so pretty, do you wanna burn it with me?

We'll use the trees as torches, do you wanna burn it with me?
We'll flood the streets with corpses, do you wanna burn it with me?
We'll watch the city fuckin' bleed, do you wanna burn it with me?
And bring the world to its knees, do you wanna burn it with me?

Let's watch this city burn
From the skylines on top of the world
Till there's nothing left of her
Let's watch this city burn

Let's watch this city burn
From the skylines on top of the world
Till there's nothing left of her
Let's watch this city burn the world

Let's watch it burn
Let's watch it burn
Let's watch this city burn the world
