Stiff Little Fingers – Die And Burn lyrics

You're holding on to something
I don't believe it's real
You're living in the past
And you refuse to reappraise
Your ridiculous commitment
To an outmoded ideal
Are you honestly that stupid
Or will these wounds never heal

[Chorus:]
You can keep your flags and emblems
I don't need them anymore
So just take your age-old hatred
And then walk out of the door
I hope that you die and burn tonight
I hope that you die and burn tonight

You think of all your neighbours
As just scum upon the earth
And you live inside a bubble
Where a badge is all you're worth
All your dreams are built on loathing
All your hopes are built on hate
I can't see any way out
Of this hell that you create

[Chorus:]

I wish you could see yourself
As others all see you
Then maybe you'd realise
That you seem such a fool

[Chorus:]
