it was '22
came in the night and took it all away
no, it don't discriminate, it's all the same
fire needs the fuel and fuel needs the flame

and now we know that it's too late to leave this town
and now we lose all hope and watch it all burn down

and so we'll dance around the flames
let it all be dead until we give it life again
one day they'll be building on the ruins of today
they'll make a monument where everyone can pray
so this is progress

so hide your face
cover up your mouth and keep the smoke away
no need to speak when i know what you'll say
"it's such a shame, you know, it's such a waste"

and now we know that it's too late to leave this town
and now we lose all hope and watch it all burn down

and so we'll dance around the flames
let it all be dead until we give it life again
one day they'll be building on the ruins of today
they'll make a monument where everyone can pray
so this is progress

don't hang your head in shame
you're crying in the corner but you're not to blame
everyone's a victim when we have no say
so just forget it all and walk away

and now we know that it's too late to leave this town
and now we lose all hope and watch it all burn down

and so we'll dance around the flames
let it all be dead until we give it life again
one day they'll be building on the ruins of today
they'll make a monument where everyone can pray
so this is progress
