"Burning Down" as written by and Billy Rankin....
If it takes them so long
So long to say yes
Why don't they just say no?
They don't need anyone to be put to the test
Why don't they let us go

Livin' for the right to be, livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be, livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be free

We needed a plan, we needed defenses
We couldn't raise a smile
As the world looked on, they raided our senses
There can be no reconcile

Burning down, burning down, burning down, burning down

There was a time before life was taken for granted
'Will never come again
Our flower is dead, the seed is unplanted
They put it all to flame

Burning down, burning down, burning down, burning down

Livin' for the right to be, livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be, livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be free
Livin' for the right to be, livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be, livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be free

Burning down, burning down , burning down , burning down
