Well you can't
No you can't
Said ya can't
You can't always win
If you try
You get by
Well it's true
I can see they do
Well a man's just a man
And a man can just
take so much
Well this man's
Got a trigger
And I think
It just takes
One touch

Fire with fire with fire
Fire and smoke
If I can
Burn this town
To the ground
I believe
I believe
Make 'em sure

Raise up
Raise up
Raise up
There's no time to sleep
Cause you can't
Beat the house
And this time
You're playing for keeps
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
There's no time to lose
Cause they only
Time they win
You say they do

With fire with fire with fire
Fire and smoke
If I can
Burn this town
To the ground
I believe
I believe

Well there will be fire
And there will be smoke
There will be ashes on the ground and
Everyone will choke and
It'll be the biggest thing since nineteen ought four
I'll burn you down my Baltimore

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
