Lyrics
So long to say yes,
Why don抰 they just say no?
They don抰 need anyone to be put to the test
Why don抰 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 need a plan, we needed defenses,
We couldn抰 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,
慦ill 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.
