This city is on fire
Everything is burning down
How did it all get started
Did we know before now
This city is on fire
Whose God will be louder
Everything's burning down
This city is on fire

In my backyard
In my neighbor's house
Across the ocean
Fire on the ground
I don't hear them cry
I don't hear the sound
Why don't I hear the sound

I think about what I'd say
Kids those are firecrackers
We're playing war today
Our turn to run for cover
The soldiers will arrive
To capture the survivors
No safety in this place
This city is on fire

No count down
No warning siren
The walls crash
The sky is falling

Who decides who is worth more
How come some things we kill for
When does the oil run dry
When will we see through the lies

In my backyard
In my neighbor's house
Across the ocean
Fire all around
We don't hear them cry
We don't hear the sound
Why don't we hear the sound
This city's on fire
