Do you believe in God in heaven?
Do you believe or have you lost the faith?
Did you ever try getting blood from a stone?
No-one hears you scream when you're standing alone
Nothin' else to give, we're killin' ourselves to live
It's a crime and we're wasting time
All the young dudes with serious attitudes
It's a crime and we're wasting time
I want what's yours and you want what's mine
It's a crime and we're wasting time
Little of what is said makes sense inside my head
It's a crime and we're wasting time

Burning Down Paradise
Like taking matches and gasoline
And placing it in a child's hand
Burning Down Paradise
Is it too late? (Too late?)
Burn! Burning paradise!

Man with a gun talks about revolution
Do you really believe that is a solution?
Does it make you laugh when you hear them lying?
Do you cry like a child 'cuz you're scared of dying?
He's the king of the alley, his queen's the gutter cat
It's a crime and we're wasting time
Man bleeding in the rain, we ain't got time to see his pain
It's a crime and we're wasting time
There's a man with a grin, says he's free from sin
It's a crime and we're wasting time
We're sliding into mad. Man, I've had enough!
And we're wasting time

Burning Down Paradise
Like taking matches and gasoline
And placing it in a child's hand
Burning Down Paradise
Is it too late? (Too late?)
Burn! Burning paradise!
