BURN IT DOWN

Try and live our lives, try and pass the time
Whatcha gonna do if your lfie is a crime
When the lights start flashing red and blue
And you hear the sirens, they're coming for you

CHORUS:
The cops are chasing me down the alleys of town
No, I can't obey, Gotta get away, Burn it to the ground
The cops are chasing me down the alleys and streets of my town
No, I won't obey, Gotta get away, Burn it to the ground

You've heard of police corruption, we know it all too well
Macho fucking pigs try to make our lives hell
Beat the kid down if he's got the wrong clothes
If it's done real quick then no one knows

CHORUS

It could be walking down the sidewalk or hanging at the square
It's a chance to bust the punks, that's all they fucking care
It's prejudice that lurks beneath the stars and stripes
If you try to take a stand, you'll end up running for your life

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Now I rot in hell in this dirty fucking cell
Cursing the bastards that held me down as I fell
Wishing it was the day that I was free...

LAST CHORUS:
The cops were chasing me down the alleys and streets of my town
Didn't know what to say, had to get away and burn it to the ground
Another night, another fight in our town
The cops were chasing me had to get away burned 'em to the ground
Burn it down...
