lyrics

what fucking year is this we're living in?
black bodies lying in the streets again
history plucked from the recycling bin
what fucking year is this again?

what fucking year is this, what century?
strange fruit hanging from decision trees
this killing ground was made for you and me
so be a man, boy, and stand up while you bleed

burn it down, burn it all down
spread the ashes and salt the ground
burn it down, burn it all down
spread the ashes and salt the ground

who fucking died and made you king?
bloody fingers decked with diamond rings
cut david's throat and cry over his broken sling
it doesn't matter, it doesn't cost you anything

what fucking difference does it make?
we've taken everything that we can take
crank up the engines and cut the brakes
round up the heretics and shame them at the stake

burn it down, burn it all down
spread the ashes and salt the ground
burn it down, burn it all down
spread the ashes and salt the ground
