Gatsbys American Dream – Pompeii lyrics

We sat against the mountain side
And overviewed this burn so bright
But more will burn tonight
I'll bury this town tonight
And paint the sky with fire
The city is burning
I'll tear down the walls
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha uh huh
And there's nothing in the dark I won't bring to light
(And I will bury you)
They'll dig you up in fifteen hundred years

    IDK the meaning but I do enjoy the song and just going over the words. This song obviously meant a lot to Pompeii and it sounds amazing. I don't know what they intended it to mean but to. Me it means peace and love and equality. I hope every one else enjoys the words of this song it means a lot to a lot of different people. Hope other readers of this song comment what the song / lyrics mean to them because it would be awesome to read what the lyrics / song means to them and if they van relate to what the swing means to me. Love the song it is overall really awesome.
