"Burn It Down" as written by Zoltan Bathory, Ivan Moody, Matthew Snell, Jeremy Spencer and Thomas Jason Grinstead....
You think you know me
You don't know shit
I've seen the world through your eyes
And it makes me sick
I question all of your answers
They're fuckin' lies
I won't conform to your system
I'd rather die
I burn it down

Just to watch it go
I burn it down
So everybody knows
I burn it down
Just to see it torched
I burn it down
I hate it to the core

Think you're a martyr?
Not hard to see
You wanna rule the fuckin' world?
You gotta get through me
Your iron fist will be broken
No soul to sell
You think I'll burn for my actions
See you in hell
Burn it down

I do it for myself
I burn it down
For me and no one else
I burn it down
Just to watch it go
I burn it down
I hate you fuckin' all

I burn it down
Just to watch it go
I burn it down
So everybody knows
I burn it down
Just to see it torched
I burn it down
I hate it to the core

    General CommentTwo things:


    1. Who cares if they are "Mainstream?" if they still fucking rock who cares?


    2. OK so it sounds like an album that kicked alot of ass, your problem is? A CD can sound the same as the last as long as it does not bore, I've heard half the songs on it so far and they all sound great and something I can put on repeat for awhile.

    General Commentfirst off... minor correction... he is saying "i've questioned all of your answers"

    and the main chorus is a little off too:

    I burn it down
    just to watch it go
    burn it down
    So everybody knows
    I burn it down
    Just to see it torched
    burn it down
    I hate it to the core.

    General Commentthey won't be mainstream becuase radio stations won't play anything but their softer songs... and when those people hear the rest they are no longer interested... and i'm fine with that.

    and the album does kick major ass... there are a few softer songs, but if you know Ivan BEFORE 5fdp... there is NOTHING Wrong with it. great fucking album
