Burn, Burn (Updated)


"Burn, Burn"
Writer: Lewis, Michael Richard/Watkins, Ian/Oliver, Richard James

Where do I begin, with this life we're living in
Market youth their uniform, make us all fit in
But do you think, that we're that blind?
That we can't see through all your lies?

[Chorus]
Cause if it's no good
Burn burn the stations
We'll burn it down
Burn burn the truth
Enjoy the flames
In celebration
Enjoy the sound
For us, for them, for you

I know that I've been told
My integrity was sold
Price and placed upon the shelf
It's worth it's weight in gold
But do you think we've lost our minds?
Yeah we can see through all your lies?

[Chorus]

Burn burn the truth the lies the news
Burn burn the life that you can't choose
Burn burn the hate that gets you through
Burn burn for us, for them, for you [x4]

Cause if it's no good
Burn burn the stations
We'll burn it down
Burn burn the truth
Enjoy the flames
In celebration
Enjoy the sound

For us, for them, for you [Repeat x5]

I always loved that song by the Lostprophets.

On somewhat the same theme I would like to add a quote from "On The Road" by Jack Kerouac, that I was reminded of when adding the music. The quote describes the people that interest and fascinate me. The ones I seek out and want to be around and have around me.

Some would of course suggest that the reason for this is because I am so boring myself and I would wholeheartedly agree with them. I am the moth around the flame or the reflection of the fire in other people.

"They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn..."

And then again, I need the sane and balanced ones also.

  1. Jack Kerouac spend a good part of his life in my home town of Northport, Long Island, New York, where he, along with the singers Billy Joel and Patty Lupone, are part of local legend. Good you are covering the king of beat here!
