Liar, liar the world's on fire
Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?
Fire, fire burning higher
Still got time to turn it all around

Now I ain't one for speaking out much
But that don't mean I don't stay in touch
Everybody's trippin' over this or that
What we gonna do when we all fall flat?

Liar, liar the world's on fire
What we gonna do when it all burns down?

I don't know what to think about us
When did we lose in God we trust
God Almighty, what we gonna do
If God ain't listenin' and we're deaf too

Liar, liar the world's on fire
Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?
Fire, fire burning higher
Still got time to turn it all around

Don't get me started on politics
Now how are we to live in a world like this
Greedy politicians, present and past
They wouldn't know the truth if it bit 'em in the ass

(Whatcha gonna do?)
Now tell me what is truth?
(Whatcha gonna do?)
Have we all lost sight
(Whatcha gonna do?)
Of common decency?
(Whatcha gonna do?)
Of the wrong and right?

How do we heal this great divide?
Do we care enough to try?
Liar, liar the world's on fire
What we gonna do when it all burns down?

Billy got a gun, Joey got a knife
Janey got a sign to carry in the fight
Marching in the streets with sticks and stones
Don't you ever believe words don't break bones

Oh, can we rise above?
Can't we show some love?
Do we just give up
Or make a change?
We know all too well
We've all been through hell
Time to break the spell
In Heaven's name

Liar, liar the world's on fire
Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?
Fire, fire burning higher
Still got time to turn it all around

Liar, liar the world's on fire
Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?
Fire, fire burning higher
Still got time to turn it all around

(Liar, liar, the world's on fire)
(Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?)
(Liar, liar, the world's on fire)
(Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?)
Show some love (liar, liar, the world's on fire)
(Still got time to turn it all around)
Let's rise above (liar, liar, the world's on fire)
(Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?)
Let's make a stand (liar, liar, the world's on fire)
(Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?)
Let's lend a hand (liar, liar, the world's on fire)
(Still got time to turn it all around)
Let's heal the hurt (liar, Liar, the world's on fire)
(Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?)
Let kindness work (liar, liar, the world's on fire)
(Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?)
Let's be a friend (liar, liar, the world's on fire)
(Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?)
Let hatred end (liar, liar, the world's on fire)
(Whatcha gonna do)

Liar, liar, the world's on fire
Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?
Liar, liar, the world's on fire
Whatcha gonna do when it all burns down?
