JaeWon – Gotham Is Burning lyrics

Let's torch it all
And watch it fall apart - tonight
It's burning (it's burning) tonight

Let's torch it all
For all the broken hearts - tonight
It's burning (it's burning)

Verse 1:
Can you see those stars in the sky, feel the cold wind blowing?
See the moon while I'm blowing out a smoke ring
Light another cigarette while thinking "I'm a show them"
Make sure they know none sicker when I go in

He's a beast, yeah, a bastard they call him
Always put it all in his tracks and make sure that
They know he ain't just another rascal, aboard with
A nack for that raw shit in rap, living lawless

Just a man going after it all and he's
Willing to push it to the max for the glory
Though he's well-aware of the fact it'll cost him
Everything he loves, kiss his daughter on the forehead

Then he's gone in the cracks of the fortress
Glance at the city in the back, so alluring
One last time, then ignores all the warnings
Picking up the torch and see the flame looking gorgeous...


Verse 2:
Nowadays when I look in the mirror my reflection is tired
(And weak) but, tell me, how do you rest with the fire
Lit under your eyelids, possessed by a higher
Will to kill 'em all, break the necks of these giants

On this path, on my own, I travel in slow-
-mo through the lands of the cold and arrogant folks
Some panic arose, and yet my/his balance would show
A talented young padawan who had Anakin's soul

Darkness in his mind, entangled with hope
And he knew to reach that high - he had to get low
Images flashing of the magic he had that would grow
Into an obsession as the passion got out of control

Nowadays he moves in a mechanical mode
With his mind set on the top, his plan is to blow
Right now I'm thinking you might as well hand me the globe
Since we're all just moments away from insanity. Go...

Chorus (x2)
