lyrics

I’ve got nothing to do but kick my can down the street
And throw little rocks at the cars
I’ve got bored of the dope, of robbing the church
Of breaking other kids in the park
Mum’s down the pub, where else would she be?
There’s never anyone at home
I’m so sick of this town, there’s nothing for me
Everyone moves so slowly

I was drifting around, the sun had gone down
The town was fast asleep
Then it started to rain, so I hid in the church
I was looking at the big wooden beams
I started to think, how fast would they burn
If someone set them alight?
I’ve got nothing to do but kick my can down the street
Tonight I’ll give them such a fright

This place just pulls me down
I’ll raise it to the ground
I fucking hate this town
I’m gonna burn it down
I'm gonna burn it down

So I gathered some books and I started a fire
With fuel from my brother’s supplies
I ran out the door as smoke started to pour
Now the flames are reaching the sky
Windows are crashing the roof is collapsing
The smoke is stinging my face
What do I do, I can’t even move
In the heat from this beast that I’ve made

This place just pulls me down
I’ll raise it to the ground
I fucking hate this town
I’m gonna burn it down
I’m gonna burn it down
I’m gonna burn it down
I’m gonna burn it down
I’m gonna burn it down
I’m gonna burn it down
