lyrics

They razed the forests to the ground
The E.P.A. didn’t make a sound
Tree spikers working for Earth First!
But the atmosphere keeps getting worse
Towering smokestacks, make them fall
Another brick knocked from the wall

CHORUS: The system (the System) the system’s on fire
But we don’t need no water, let the motherfucker burn
The system (the System) it’s on fire
But we don’t want no water, let it burn, yo

Science killing for humankind
Tear out your brain and rob you blind
Try to help them, begging “Please!
“Mutilation can’t cure disease!”
But they won’t listen to common sense
Sabotage is the best defense

CHORUS

…BURN…

Preachers pocket wages of sin
Dig your own grave, throw yourself in
One god or another it’s all the same
They win, you lose, name of the game
Smash each bloody holy cross
ICONICIDE, no fucking loss

CHORUS

Abolish terrorists of the State
Eye for an Eye, hate bred from hate
The chains run deeper on both sides
You’ve been programmed to run and hide
And freedom is a costly lie
Until I see the System die

CHORUS

BURN, BURN, BURN, BURN..
LET IT BURN
