Kings Of Leon – Pyro lyrics

(1st Verse)

Single book of matches, gonna burn whose standing in the way

Burning down the mountain, better call on the fire brigade

Bury all the pictures and tell the kids that I’m ok

Even if I’m forgotten you’ll remember me for a day

[Chorus:]

I, I don’t wanna be your cornerstone, I

(2nd Verse)

All the black inside me is slowly seeping from the bone

Everything I cherished is slowly dying or is gone

Little shaking babies and drunkards seem to all agree

Once the show gets started its bound to be a sight to see

[Chorus:]

I, I won’t ever be your cornerstone

I, I don’t wanna be holding on

I, I won’t ever be your cornerstone, I

Want your love, can you feel it? (4x)

I, I won’t ever be your cornerstone

I, I don’t wanna be holding on

I, I won’t ever be your cornerstone

I, I don’t wanna be holding on, I

    I really don't see a way that the officials involved could justify the events of that day. They invade their compound due to reports of child neglect/abuse but then kill all of the children (and everyone else) in a very slow and horrible way. It disgusts me. If Kings of Leon did in-fact write this song about the Waco incident then I have a lot of respect for them. Society needs to remember the past so they do not continue repeating it.
