Matthew Ryan - The World Is On Fire lyrics

There's always a story, a story to tell
A story to sell to the news
A sweet virgin princess gave death in the bathroom
While her boyfriend cleaned his shoes

And gin pushed a low light to turn on his good wife
When he stuck a knife in her throat
And coke loves the ratings 'cause you love the horror
As long as it didn't come home

Faith is weak
She's running out of steam
And fate is tired
I'm so fed up, you're all fired
Oh America, you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful when you're sleeping
Lovers, you are loved
You are loved when you're grieving

Now I am a father and I am a brother
I've tried and I'm trying still
Why life is so precious but piles like garbage
I guess it's our passion that kills

But somewhere it's peaceful and morning is dawning
All soft and warm in desire
But a darkness is creeping while the news is spreading
And again the world is on fire

Faith is weak
She's running out of steam
And fate is tired
I'm so fed up, you're all fired
Oh America, you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful when you're sleeping
Lovers, you are loved
You are loved when you're grieving
