It seemed like everyone I knew was dying
I looked in the mirror and I was on fire
Somebody yelled out "hey, stop, drop, and roll!"
I said "that might save my skin, but it won't save my soul.
That might save my skin, but it won't save my soul"

You swallow hard and you bottle it up
Try to pretend you're a half full cup
Believe what they're feeding, you're eating it up
While I'm reading books about how they're corrupt
I'm reading books about how they're corrupt

He says he protecting us but he's a liar
I know deep down that it's down to the wire
My heart will stop if I put out the fire
As long as I'm burning
I'll keep on yearning
To save the world
Not sure how but I'm learning

Since what they call the beginning of man
Blood has been she'd for the rape of the land
They call it civilized, I call it crap
Our only hope is to look further back
Our only hope is to look further back

If we really want for this world to survive
We'll just take what we need to stay alive
It's a mistake to just take and not give
It's not true that we must murder to live
It's not true that we must murder to live

He says he protecting us but he's a liar
I know deep down that it's down to the wire
My heart will stop if I put out the fire
As long as I'm burning
I'll keep on yearning
To save the world
Not sure how but I'm learning
And telling the truth the best way that I'm able
Placing my cards all face up on the table
It's okay to be scared, you do don't hafta act tough
Take all that pain and turn it into love
Take all that pain and turn it into love

And let your emotions be fuel to your flame
Being on fire will keep you awake
If somebody yells out "hey, stop, drop, and roll!"
Say "that might save my skin, but it won't save my soul.
That might save my skin, but it won't save my soul"
