We sat against the mountain side
And overviewed this burn so bright
But more will burn tonight.
I'll bury this town tonight
And paint the sky with fire.

The city is burning.
I'll tear down the walls
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha
And there's nothing in the dark I won't bring to light
(And I will bury you)
They'll dig you up in fifteen hundred years.

    General CommentFirst line should read:

    "Set against the mountain side,
    and oh the hubris burns so bright."

    Feeds into the attitude expressed both by and about the Pompeiians
