  • Last night
    I saw a fire burning on
    The palace lawn
    O'er the land
    The humble subjects watched in mixed
    Emotion

    Who is burnin'?
    Who is burnin'?
    Effigy
    Who is burnin'?
    Who is burnin'?
    Effigy

    Last night
    I saw the fire spreadin' to
    The palace door
    Silent majority
    Weren't keepin' quiet
    Anymore

    Who is burnin'?
    Who is burnin'?
    Effigy
    Who is burnin'?
    Who is burnin'?
    Effigy

    Last night
    I saw the fire spreadin' to
    The country side
    In the mornin'
    Few were left to watch
    The ashes die

    Who is burnin'?
    Who is burnin'?
    Effigy
    Who is burnin'?
    Who is burnin'?
    Effigy

    Why?
    Why?
    Why?
