Let It Burn

Let It Burn 2016-05-12T16:52:19+00:00

All the money in the world, well it couldn’t pay for what you’ve done

You’ve got the devil on both your shoulders and you’ll be

Damned any way you run

Spent it al upon a good time now it’s wearing pretty thin

Tomorrow came up fast and now well just look at the state you’re in

And with the devil on both your shoulders

Well you’ll be damned any way you turn

So toss a match onto forever and just let it burn, let it burn

Let it burn

 

There’s no future in tomorrow, there’s no gold left in the hills

And all the money in the world won’t compensate for all you killed

Second guess the revolution and pledge allegiance to the king

They never question your commitment when you don’t stand for anything

A little frontier education well it’s such a brutal way to learn

For a little heart still pumping diesel now just let it burn, let it burn

Let it burn

 

See that angry wake of vultures and see that bloodhound on the trail

Now the muddy creek is rising and this old boat was built to fail

Now the rats they’ve climbed the city walls

And they’ve run out of control

And every desperate new manoeuvre

Well it just throws you deeper in the hole

And all the money in the world won’t make some golden age return

Stack up all your hope and honour and just let it burn, let it burn

Let it burn

Let it burn
