Last night I saw a fire burnin' on
The palace lawn o'er the land
The humble subjects watched in mixed
Emotion

Who is burnin'? Who is burnin'?
Effigy
Who is burnin'? Who is burnin'?
Effigy

Last night I saw the fire spreadin' to
The palace door
Silent majority weren't keepin' quiet
Anymore

Who is burnin'? Who is burnin'?
Effigy
Who is burnin'? Who is burnin'?
Effigy

Last night I saw the fire spreadin' to
The country side
In the mornin' few were left to watch
The ashes die

Who is burnin'? Who is burnin'?
Effigy
Who is burnin'? Who is burnin'?
Effigy

Why? Why? Why?
Effigy
