  • I can't stop drop and roll
    Fire been burning out of control
    And burning keep the hearts all yearning
    And the heads them keep on turning

    I dig in, I dig in and sinking my teeth in
    Spit fire 'cause I'm the last dragon
    Knock, knock them down sizzling with a vision
    New York City to Jerusalem

    Concrete jungle burn down Babylon
    'Cause a simple man am I
    With my chest up to the sky
    When I walk by, my talk rides high like the wind rewind

    I'll be by your side when nighttime it runs on
    And the children they ride high
    I'll be standing on the sun
    Burn into the light, burn into the sun

    Find these lines that climb from inside
    The dream in between, the words you might
    Hear me slur as the vision it blurs

    And the sun sets you don't know who to follow
    And the path that they passed seems shallow
    You never know where you might go
    But the seed that you plant is the seed that you sew

    And rain down at midnight I ride my bike
    King with my broken crown
    Brooklyn Bridge to Crown Heights Writer/s: BENJI MADDEN, JASON EPPERSON, JOEL MADDEN, MATTHEW MILLER
