Hollywood Undead – City lyrics

[Intro: Deuce]
Let's watch it burn.
Let's watch it burn.
Let's watch the city burn the world!

[Chorus: Deuce]
Let's watch the city burn!
From the skylines on top of the world!
Till there's nothing left of her!
Let's watch the city burn the world!

[Verse 1: Charlie Scene & Deuce]
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 could 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 killing by the millions.
And billions of people die,
For a lost cause.
So now I pray to a nation,
Destroyed under God.
It's the end of the world!
All my battles have been won,
But the war has just begun!

[Chorus: Deuce]
Let's watch the city burn!
From the skylines on top of the world!
Till there's nothing left of her!
Let's watch the city burn the world!

[Verse 2: Johnny 3 Tears & Deuce]
The city looks so pretty,
Do you wanna burn it with me?
Till the skies bleed ashes,
And this fucking skyline crashes.
They catch us with matches,
I ignite the flame.
And all the hopes of a youth,
Deemed fucking insane.
They say: "Take the pill, in God we trust,
Go and kill, God loves us,
As in life, as in death,
Breathing till 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!
We're gonna burn this world today!
It's the end of the world!
As in heaven as on earth,
We've been dead since our birth!

[Chorus: Deuce]
Let's watch the city burn!
From the skylines on top of the world!
Till there's nothing left of her!
Let's watch the city burn the world!

[Brige: J-Dog & Charlie Scene]
The city looks so pretty!
Do you wanna burn it with me?
The city looks so pretty!
Do you wanna burn it with me?
The city looks so pretty!
Do you wanna burn it with me?
The city looks so pretty!
Do you wanna burn it with me?
We'll use those trees as torches!
We'll flood the streets with corpses!
We'll watch the city fucking bleed!
And bring the world to its knees!
Do you wanna burn it with me?

[Chorus: Deuce]
Let's watch the city burn!
From the skylines on top of the world!
Till there's nothing left of her!
Let's watch the city burn the world!
Let's watch the city burn!
From the skylines on top of the world!
Till there's nothing left of her!
Let's watch the city burn the world!

[Outro: Deuce]
Let's watch it burn!
Let's watch it burn!
Let's watch the 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.
