We built this city on Rock and Roll
Then fucked it up with bullshit "metal"
I spent a lifetime being told I'm not good enough
But there's a hope inside that just won't die
I will stay strong

It's falling apart
Crumbling down
I'm so embarrassed
I'll disappear
We're better as ashes
Blowing away
We're making a plan
Burn the city down

What do you have to show for yourself my friend?
Besides the two faces you hide behind
Maybe that river will catch fire again
Or maybe the city will burn away
