They donít need anyone to be put to the test Why donít they let us go? Liviní for the right to be, liviní for the right, Liviní for the right to be, liviní for the right, Liviní for the right to be free. We need a plan, we needed defenses, We couldnít 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, ĎWill 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. Liviní for the right to be, liviní for the right, Liviní for the right to be, liviní for the right, Liviní for the right to be free. Liviní for the right to be, liviní for the right, Liviní for the right to be, liviní for the right, Liviní for the right to be free. Burning down, Burning down, Burning down, Burning down.
