London is burning

by Newland



Troubling times in the world. Not only London is burning...


London is burning, the tide is turning
There is no way out
Paris is crying, but keeps on trying
But it's in doubt
Berlin is weeping, but it's still sleeping
No scream or shout
Nice is in mourning, but forgets in the morning
For crying out loud

History repeats but we never learn, no we never learn
History repeats but we look away
Religion and beliefs explode into our face
Religion and beliefs lead the way

Brussels is in confusion, but believes in illusion
In a perfect lie
New York lives in anger but will always remember
And will always die

London is burning, London is burning..
