Set the World on Fire

Album: Set the World on Fire (1993)
  • I shall give the vision of what is meant to be
    All you have to know is that I hold the master key
    I know your weakness and I can see your pain
    You scream deliverance and I will pave the way

    I'll set the world on fire
    It's your time to retire
    Because sooner or later
    You're going to meet your maker

    I'll give you what I think is best and what I know is right
    And those who follow me, I'll give you strength and might
    You pledge allegiance and I'll prevent your fall
    I am your leader and know I'll rule you all

    I'll set the world on fire
    It's your time to retire
    Because sooner or later
    You're going to meet your maker

    Your people are dying
    Your people are crying out
    That you must go down
    Down, down, down, you must go down
    Lets take them down
    Now that it's over and all is said and done
    You've turned the sky to black, no sign of the sun
    Do you think the free world is going to wish you well
    No god can save you now, you're going straight to hell

    We've set your world on fire
    You are now retired
    Because sooner or later
    We have to meet our maker
