"The Burn" as written by and Jonathan Luke/nixon Mcduffee....
I was all smiles when I signed on that dotted line.
After these thousands of miles,
I don't know what in life is mine and what's been taking from me.
There's so much I could say, but I don't know where to start...
where to start, where to start.
I took the bullet and I never thought twice.
I'm always the coolest when there's money in their eyes.

Let's burn down this angel town, let's burn Hollywood to the ground.

Cynics all around, they wear masks I wanna see (masks I wanna see).
They make audible sounds but never say anything.
How can I give you life? There's nowhere left to go when it's over.
I took the bullet, I took the heat, I took the fall.
I guess I was foolish to believe after all.

Let's burn down this angel town, let's burn Hollywood to the ground.
They took all my dreams and all of my things.
My family counted on me and I can't let them down (let them down).
Let's burn down Hollywood, 'cause Hollywood, Hollywood lied.
Let's burn down this angel town, let's burn Hollywood to the ground.
They took all my dreams and all of my things.
My family counted on me and I can't let them down (let them down)
I let you down.

Let's burn down Hollywood, 'cause Hollywood, Hollywood lied.

Oh, oh, oh, oh.

    General CommentHollywood is mentioned in other songs and to me it seems like this song is viewing it in a way that it will destroy you. It will destroy the person you are and distort your image and so why not burn it down? It seems like its ruining things for the person in this song and they want out of it. Sounds like fame.
