We've got a dream and since it started
They all did their best to stamp it out
Now, we're not certain, we're not certain
Who is on our side, who's on our side

Older generations made their decisions
But we don't want to follow their phony love
With all due respect, with all respect, man
We don't want to end up where you're at

Burn the maps
Burn the maps

We won't stay behind that fence and
We're not walking on your footprints

We're breaking branches in the forest
So we don't forget where we came from
Start from scratch, baby, start from scratch now
There's no better time to be reborn

Glide across the path like no one's watching
And if you hit traffic, honey, that's okay
Cause you're the best at being you now
Speed up, slow down, choose your pace

Burn the maps
Burn the maps

We won't stay behind that fence and
We're not walking on your footprints
We won't stay behind that fence and
We're not walking on your footprints

Cause all we need is love
You're giving us a deadline
You're waiting for the punchline
We're waiting for our moment to arrive

So give a little trust
Receive us with an open mind
You're busy reading archives
We're busy making future headlines
(Future headlines)

Burn the maps
Burn the maps
Burn the maps
Burn the maps

We won't stay behind that fence
We're not walking on your footprints
In the middle of a big black trench
We're not walking on your footprints

We won't stay behind that fence
We're not walking on your footprints
In the middle of a big black trench
We're not walking on your footprints

We won't stay behind that fence
We're not walking on your footprints
In the middle of a big black trench
We're not walking on your footprints
