Let's watch it burn
Let's watch it burn
Let's watch this city burn the world 
Let's watch this city burn
From the sky lies the top the world Til there's nothing left of her
Let's watch this city burn the world 
Body doused in ash
With two empty cans of gas
The only evidence they have
Is the police sketch of my mask
And its hardly time to ask
If you can save my heart for last

And its 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 killing by the millions And billions of people die
For a lost cause 
So now I pray for my nation That's 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 sky over top the world Till there's nothing left in her
Let's watch the city burn away

The city looks so pretty Do you wanna burn it with me?
Till the skies bleed ashes And the fuckin' sky crashes 
We make ashes just with matches To ignite the flame And all the hopes of the youth Deemed fuckin' insane 
Take the pill
And go get drunk And go get killed Double dose
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 and the ashes Of this world in my lungs 
But who am I to say
Lets all just run away
Go grab your friends and pray
We're gonna rule the world today

(It's the end of the world)
It's the end of the earth We've been done since our birth 
Let's watch this city burn
From the sky over top the world Till there's nothing left in her
Let's watch the city burn the world 
(Let's watch it burn) [Repeat: x2]
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 use the trees as torches (Do you wanna burn it with me?)
Dot the streets with corpses (Do you wanna burn it with me?)
We 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 sky over top the world Til there's nothing left in her
Let's watch this city burn the world Let's watch this city burn
From the sky over top the world Til there's nothing left in 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
