  • Everybody
    Where's the truth?
    Where does it lie?
    All this smoke is burning my eyes
    Fear the left, fear the right
    Money is power and power decides
    Some are more equal than others

    Everybody lies
    Everybody buys it
    We all divide, divide, divide
    So let 'em burn

    Call in my drugs
    Make me alright
    And legalize whatever gets me high
    They preach the blood, in fear we trust
    Embellish it, it sells itself
    And I've bought in for the last time

    Everybody lies
    Everybody buys it
    We all divide, divide, divide
    So let 'em burn

    They repeat a lie 'til it becomes a fact
    We gotta burn it down so we can build it back
    Let 'em burn

    Maze of mirrors
    House of cards
    You fix the fight
    Rigged from the start

    The bottom line
    Is above our heads
    Employ the flies
    To build your web

    Let 'em burn
    Sick of this shit, sick of these lies
    They all deny, deny, deny
    Let 'em burn

    They repeat a lie 'til it becomes a fact
    We gotta burn it down so we can build it back
    So let 'em burn Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
