Nazareth – Burning Down lyrics

If it takes them so long
So long to say yes
Why dont they just say no?
They dont need anyone to be put to the test
Why dont they let us go

Livin? for the right to be, livin? for the right
Livin? for the right to be, livin? for the right
Livin? for the right to be free

We needed a plan, we needed defenses
We couldnt raise a smile
As the world looked on, they raided our senses
There can be no reconcile

Burning down, burning down, burning down, burning down

There was a time before life was taken for granted
will never come again
Our flower is dead, the seed is unplanted
They put it all to flame

Burning down, burning down, burning down, burning down

Livin? for the right to be, livin? for the right
Livin? for the right to be, livin? for the right
Livin? for the right to be free
Livin? for the right to be, livin? for the right
Livin? for the right to be, livin? for the right
Livin? for the right to be free

Burning down, burning down , burning down , burning down
