Lyrics: World's On Fire

By | October 20, 2009

Watched from a distance it’s beautiful
Somebody’s caught in the undertow
Have you ever felt desperation
Cause the salt water’s filling your lungs

We’re in regret of where we sleep
Promises never meant to keep
When all that the shadows need
Is a good man to hide in a dream

Do they know that the world’s on fire

Time is a price you can’t afford
An empty glass and an open door
You get what you pay for in sweat
And a voice says please don’t forget

Do they know that the world’s on fire
Do they know that the time is now
Do they know that you’ve got to stand up stand up
Let your voice speak out
Do they know that it’s time

Caught in a maze you can’t escape
The flickering lights and the colored lens
The walls that we build just close in
Until we decide to begin

Are we distracted by the sun
The glittering jewels and the beating drums
Is it going the distance we fear
Have you heard that we’re already here

Do they know that the world’s on fire
Do they know that the time is now
Do they know that you’ve got to stand up stand up
Use your voice speak out
Do they know that the world’s on fire
Do they know that the time is here
Do they know that you’ve got to stand up stand up
Let your voice be clear
Do they know that it’s time

Some will say we’ve gone to far
We’re on the edge, we’re in too deep
Some will say we’re too far gone
You can’t erase a tragedy

Do they know that the world’s on fire
Do they know that the time is now
Do they know that you’ve got to stand up stand up
You’ve got to stand up stand up
Do they know that the world’s on fire
Do they know that the time is here
Do they know that you’ve got to stand up stand up

Let your voice be clear
Do they know that it’s time
Do they know, do they know
