Last night
I saw a fire burning 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.

Last night
I saw the fire spreadin' to
The countryside.
In the mornin',
Few were left to watch
The ashes die.

Why?
Why?
Why?
Effigy.
