lyrics

As defeat licks the jaws of victory,
The rotten teeth of injury and insult gnaw at me
The local stigmatic handsome gentleman
Detonates, incinerates the town he's living in

This town is burning down
Oh, wake your little ones
This town is burning down
So save your sleeping sons

Only a clown would join this here circus sideshow
Don't you know funhouse mirrors ain't friends?
And soon you'll be on your hands and knees
Dusting off the bones of fallen gods
Who willed to fill such ends

This town is burning down
Oh, wake your little ones
This town is burning down
So save your sleeping sons
