Apocalyptic City Lyrics

9. Apocalyptic City (5:51)
Track rating :  88 / 100       Votes :  5       [ ]
Born into a world of hatred; nothing to live for
What started with a simple match turned into something more
The pain I felt inside my head; came on my day of birth
Now the time has come for me to burn the planet Earth

I can feel the fire burning inside of me
The powers at my fingers waiting you shall see

Burn! Ignite the population
Burn! Causing mass cremation
Burn! Feel no shame or pity
Burn! Apocalyptic city

Years have passed as I stood still to plan the final blow
I'll make the town go up in flames, a hellish death they'll know
As I pour on the gasoline I listen deep inside
I hear the cries of all my victims, nowhere to run or hide

I can feel the fire burning inside of me
The powers at my fingers waiting you shall see

Burn! Ignite the population
Burn! Causing mass cremation
Burn! Feel no shame or pity
Burn! Apocalyptic city

Now my great assault is over and my life is done
Staring at my great infernos was my only fun
So I leave you with my tale; here my conscious falls
Victim of myself, so now I'll end it all

I can feel the fire burning inside of me
The powers at my fingers waiting you shall see

Burn! Ignite the population
Burn! Causing mass cremation
Burn! Feel no shame or pity
Burn! Apocalyptic city
