Gather round my friends
I need a match and only one match
I think it's time I make my own way
I'm turning my back on this city and I'm not looking back
You'll never hear my name without your chest in flames

I'll make my own mistakes
Even though I never learn
I'm running from myself
If only you could see behind my eyes

Run
Get up, get up
Get on your fucking feet

I'll make my own mistakes
Even though I never learn
I'm running from myself
If only you could see behind my eyes

Follow me now I could use some company
Bring your friends and we'll burn the city to the ground
Burn the temples

The fires fill the skies as the smoke fills my lungs
What a beautiful notion
A single action brings this city to motion.

You all deserve to die.

    General CommentHe likes to create mass destruction and burn things. The end is suppose to be "You all deserve to die"

    General CommentI think when Dano says "you'll never hear my name without your chest in flames" he's referring to my ex using plenty of fish and zoosk while I watched from a distance. It was beautiful destruction. I believe Tim McGraw once said "let her go and be herself and then when she is her true self leave her for a real cowgirl" thank you Osmosis Jones for the insight
