Burning Down

If it takes them so long
So long to say yes
Why don't they just say no

We don't need anyone
To be put to the test
Why don't they let us be

Livin' for the right to be
Livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be
Livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be free

We needed a plan
We needed defences
They couldn't raise a smile

As the world looked down
They raided our senses
There can be no reconcile

Livin' for the right to be
Livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be
Livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be free

There was a time in our life
Was taken for granted
It'll never come again
Our flower is dead
The seed is unplanted
They put it all to the flame

Burnin' Down

Livin' for the right to be
Livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be
Livin' for the right
Livin' for the right to be free
