lyrics

We're gonna burn this place down

I fan the flames the disarray it brings me in
I wanna stop but it keeps me at arms length
It started as a single singe that grew within
But when it's out of my hands is it too late now?

The smoke fills my lungs
I can't breath

So save me now that I'm breaking down
Retrieve me

We're gonna watch this place burn
I feel on top of the world
But I'm a slave to the flame
I feel on top of the world
But it's controlling me

I stand and watch my hell turn to reality
The smoke and mirrors are illusions to trick you
It's not the flames that frighten me but when it dies
How will I control this fire that's burning through

The smoke fills my lungs
I can't breath

So save me now that I'm breaking down
Retrieve me
Please stay with me now
Cause I can't get control on my own
Draw me out of this fire I've started

We're gonna watch this place burn
I feel on top of the world
But I'm a slave to the flame
I feel on top of the world
But it's controlling me

Once the smoke clears
I pray I'll see you
I've obscured my own views
Trying to deceive you

The smoke fills my lungs
I can't breath
I can't control my world
Till I kill the pyro in me

So save me now that I'm breaking down
Retrieve me
Please stay with me now
Cause I can't get control on my own
Draw me out of this fire I've started
