lyrics

Burning Rome To the Ground

She took a deep breath
Won’t leave the keys in the door
Make sure she has what she needs
She won’t come back anymore

He had a taste for violence
She was done playing mouse
No longer scared of the silence
Or giving in to doubt

She’s burning Rome to the ground
She’s burning Rome to the ground
She’s burning Rome to the ground
She’s burning Rome to the ground

I was done being used
By unreliable friends
Taken my share of abuse
From despicable friends
I took a deep breath
And I opened my mouth
I said enough is enough
I told them over and out

I’m burning Rome to the ground
I’m burning Rome to the ground
I’m burning Rome to the ground
I’m burning Rome to the ground

They reached out for each other
Through unthinkable pain
The pain that only a mother
Could ever know or sustain
They said our children are dying
And they will not be in vain
They said we won’t keep silent
We will keep screaming their names

They’re burning Rome to the ground
They’re burning Rome to the ground
We’re burning Rome to the ground
We’re burning Rome to the ground
