We light a match and throw it on the petrol
Coloured flames covering the asphalt

It's never been so pretty
It's never been so pretty
We gonna burn the city
We gonna burn the city

Shut the doors and climb up on the rooftops
Watch the sky falling like a teardrop

It's never been so pretty
It's never been so pretty
We gonna burn the city
We gonna burn the city

It's everywhere but this time it won't hurt us
We dance like flames turning into stardust

Its never been so pretty
Its never been so pretty
We gonna burn the city
We gonna burn the city

Look at your dress it's meltin' in the moonlight
Look at the kids they never stayed up all night

It's never been so pretty
It's never been so pretty
They gonna burn the city
They gonna burn the city

Pale monuments are shimmering like Vegas
The city hall turns into a circus

Its never been so pretty
Its never been so pretty
We gonna burn the city

We gonna burn it down
burn it down
burn it down
burn it down
{Repeat x2}

Jealous men line up on the horizon
They stand and stare as the fire keeps on risin'

It's never been so pretty
They wanna burn the city
They wanna burn the city
oh c'mon c'mon

L'ets set this place on fire
We gonna set their feet on fire
We're dancing in the fire
Oh c'mon c'mon

A million miles of fire
We're makin' up a choir
A thousand lips on fire
Oh c'mon c'mon

Lets set this place on fire
We gonna set their feet on fire
We're dancing in the fire

We gonna burn it down
Burn it down
Burn it down
Burn it down
Burn it down
{Repeat x3}

We gonna burn it down
