There's truth beneath the floorboards, there's hope in brick and stone
They tell me just to shut my mouth, leave well enough alone
But I think maybe all that's needed is a match and gasoline
'Cause I don't think that any one of them believes that there will be a reckoning

But I will see this city burn

Still good shepherds scattered but they're far between and few
And the sheep's skin that the wolves all wear, so thin I see right through
And I think maybe all that's needed is some gas and open flame
'Cause I don't think that any one of them believes that fire can erase their names

But I will see this city burn
I said I will see this city burn

We will burn it down and
Build it again, what was buried in flame
Burn it down and
Build it again from the bricks that remain

I love this city, but I've set and numbered its days
I love this city enough that I'll set it ablaze
I love this city, but I've set and numbered its days
I love this city enough that I'll set it ablaze

There is truth beneath the floorboards, there's hope in brick and stone
They tell me just to shut my mouth, leave well enough alone
But I think that maybe all that's needed is some flint and hardened steel
'Cause I don't think that any one of them believes the revolution's real

We will burn it down and
Build it again what was buried in flame
Burn it down and
Build it again from the bricks that remain

We will burn it down and
Build it again what was buried in flame
Burn it down and
Build it again from the bricks that remain

I love this city, but I've set and numbered its days
I love this city enough that I'll set it ablaze
I love this city, but I've set and numbered its days
I love this city enough that I'll set it ablaze

I love this city, but I've set and numbered its days
I love this city enough that I'll set it ablaze
I love this city, but I've set and numbered its days
I love this city enough that I'll set it ablaze

And it will burn
Watch the city burn
It will burn
