It takes a lifetime to pull all of the knives out of a nations back
This will be the city you lived in but never liked
Let's take the cameras and paint them black

Is this all that you want?
Is this all that you want?
Is this all that you want?
Is this all you?
Is this all that you want?
Is this really all that you want?
Is this all that you want?

London's just a burning fire
London's just a burning fire that takes your oxygen
A burning fire
London's just a burning fire that takes your oxygen

I hope that one day I will get the chance
To lose this hopeless race
I'll be the city on fire that will never sleep
I'll make you vanish without a trace

Is this all that you want?
Is this all that you want?
Is this all that you want?
Is this all you?
Is this all that you want?
Is this really all that you want?
Is this all that you want?

London's just a burning fire
London's just a burning fire that takes your oxygen
A burning fire
London's just a burning fire that takes your oxygen

London's just a burning fire
London's just a burning fire
London's just a burning fire
London's just a burning fire that takes your oxygen

A burning fire
London's just a burning fire that takes your oxygen
A burning fire
London's just a burning fire that takes your oxygen

    Song Meaning"Not only is this the bands most politically charged song to date, the video itself is both extremely powerful and relevant to the modern society that engulfs our senses with every breathe we take. The political elements in the music video were conceived, shot and composited by bass player / director Dan Haigh. These time lapse shots captured around London, mutate corporate advertising to display provocative information on current pertinent issues. The aim is to inspire curiosity in the audience, hopefully encouraging the public to do their own research into these topics. Fighstar hope those interested will subsequently become informed on certain political ideas that may affect their freedoms in the future if left unchecked

    I found this next to their video on youtube..
    I agree with it to be honest.

    General CommentThis song and video both provoke the listener/viewer's mind to think about the relevent topic, just how much control and freedom we have over our lives... with london being the government and the oxygen our freedom.. i think the hypothesis being put forward by these guys just asks for research, logic, and to see that the limited evidence being given on these issues is enough; you just have to simply see 'normality' as an illusion for what lies underneath, what fighstar are trying to say, again, all this song asks for is a little interest and research, topics like false flag terror, Illuminati, new world order :)
