      name your price



enslaved by the chains of our own design
and reigned by the price of our desire
barely breathing in the quarter or whatever is left over
after spending the rest of ourselves for the lie

we're trained by refrain of the ages past
to strain for the things that cannot last
so we carry on the chorus of the ones who fell before us
though the glamour of the prize is fading fast

we were taught to live our lives like this
we were taught to fight and die for this
but i could not abide anymore

burn it down
we'll build it up again somehow
burn clean absolve us of these sins
and from the ashes start again

when the night is alight blazing bright as the sun
and all of our tribes unite as one
we'll dance around the trash fire of this goddamned rotting empire
and revel in the awe of what we've done

burn it down
we'll learn to live someway, somehow
and find inside a way to be a thing that is more wild & free
