Call off your witch hunt This time the french are not to blame Your justice is heaven sent I bid you farewell I'll see you in hell This town is burning down This town is burning down This town is burning down You've consumed and consumed and consumed The very soul of this city It's a sin Will you be surprised when the flames Consume you as God claims his retribution This town is burning down This town is burning down This town is burning down This town is burning down This town is burning down This town is burning down

They said it couldn't be done And so it seems I proved them all wrong In spite of them I have become The chosen one This is the devil's game This is a holiday This is the devil's game It turns me on All I ever wanted Is a little revolution But here I sit With my head in my hands Lost in a sea of deception And this ship won't let me sink And the wind won't talk about England expects England expects If you feed them a lie They will take it and run And who could blame them This is the devil's game This is a holiday This is the devil's game This is a holiday

Fate smiles at it's funny little ways As it put pay to a promising career They prophesied of their own demise It was too good to resist It was too good to resist Death it is the end more or less As you lie here, does it feel As if it was such a good idea In tempting fate Are you sorry now? Are you sorry now? Death it is the end more or less Bar funeral trains and rotting flesh
