She's on her way to Brooklyn
The sweetheart of the borough
She's gonna burn it down to the ground for me
She's gonna burn it down to the ground for me

It's a bitter pill
It's a long way down
Brother, I made a mess again
I've written all of my sins down
All of my sins down

Bottled books with liquid pages
The ink is dripping from my chin
I swallow the truth again
And I know, I know it's been a long time
I'm on my way home tonight
I could use some of your light
Just a little more light

Brother Benjamin
You are my only friend
My demons caught up again
She's on her way to Brooklyn
Sweetheart of the borough
She's gonna burn it down to the ground for me
She's gonna burn it down to the ground for me

It's a barricaded bathroom
And a handful of her closest friends
She caught the demon again
If I make it back to Brooklyn
Strike a match for every borough
'Cause Brooklyn's burning tonight
'Cause Brooklyn's burning tonight
Brooklyn's burning tonight
