(Lets watch it burn) x2
Lets watch this city burn the world

{Chorus}
Let's watch this city burn
From the skylines on top the world
Til there's nothing left of her
Let's watch this city burn the world

My body doused in ash with two empty cans of gas
The only evidence they have is a police sketch of my mask
And it's hard at times to ask if you can save my heart for last
And it's hard to face the facts when the darkness fades to black

It's not just make believe when they make me take a seat
And they put amphetamines in the air and make me breathe
So come on and grab your children, look out for burning buildings
And villains who pillage, they're killin' by the millions
And billions of people die for a lost cause
So now I pray to my nation destroyed under God

(It's the end of the world)
All my battles have been won but the war has just begun

{Chorus}

This city looks so pretty do you wanna burn it with me?
Til the skies bleed ashes and this fuckin' sky crashes
They catch us with matches, ignite the flame
And all the hopes of a youth deemed fuckin' insane, they say:

Take the pill, in God we trust
Go and kill, God loves us
As in life, as in death
Breathing til there is no breath

I will not die in the night, but in the light of the sun
With the ashes of this world in my lungs
But who am I to say let's all just run away
Grab your saints and pray and we're gonna burn this world today

(It's the end of the world)
As in Heaven, as in Earth, we've been done since our birth

{Chorus}

Let's watch it burn x2

The city looks so pretty do you wanna burn it with me? X4

We'll use the trees as torches
Do you wanna burn it with me?
We'll flood the streets with corpses
Do you wanna burn it with me?
We'll watch the city fuckin' bleed
Do you wanna burn it with me?
And bring the world to it's knees and
(Do you wanna) burn it with me?

{Chorus)x2

(Lets watch it burn)x2
Lets watch this city burn the world

    I personally think that the song is about religious warfare. Religion has caused so much hatred and violence that they think it is going to take it all out. "so come on and grab your children, look out for burning buildings"
    they are saying take the children that have no idea of what religion is so they can build a world without it.
    Obviously hints at nuclear warfare as well. They probably think that religion will soon cause nuclear bombs to be dropped.
