a black helicopter flies
against a smoke stained sky
a thousand eager eyes
lit up in the night
can someone see what's happening?
can you see the roof cave in?
i think i spent a lifetime there
i swear i saw a ghost somewhere

and everyone is out on the lawn
watching as the flames rise
no one can believe that it's gone
twenty eighth street's burning down

what if i could save
what if i could save you?
don't look the other way
it'll never be again

ash is blowing in the breeze
and collecting in the streets
while a thousand dancing thieves
try to steal a little heat
did someone feel the heartbeat stop?
can you feel the clock hand drop?
the end of everything is here
but whatever's coming next is near

and everyone is staring at the stars
wondering where the time goes
no one can believe where they are
twenty eighth street's burning down

what if i could save
what if i could save you?
don't look the other way
it'll never be again

and i am all alone in the dark
wandering this burned street
waiting for the morning to start
and bring with it some meaning
