Close your eyes, metamorphosize,
Time to realize that you're dreaming it all,

People stared as I writhed on the floor,
I was shaking, I was changing but I don't know what for,
The figures faded as I sank in my mind,
I thought I was dead, until I heard a roar,

Trapped inside and crying in a dying world,
It was a purgatory worse than hell,
The sky was plastic and so were the people,
But it only took one flame, then they melted away,
This shitty plastic world slowly turned to sludge,
All because of a flame, and you've got one too.

Time to tear it down with our dirty, bare hands,
Time to burn it down and you've got the flame!
Time to tear it down with our dirty, bare hands,
Time to burn it down, burn it all down.

Close your eyes, metamorphosize,
Time to realize that you're dreaming it all,

I said it was a dream, or was it hell?
When it's all fiction can you really tell?
Look at all the people slowly wasting away,
There's not much point to life if you live it that way,

Time to tear it down with our dirty, bare hands,
Time to burn it down and you've got the flame!
Time to tear it down with our dirty, bare hands,
Time to burn it down, burn it all down.

Fire in the hole! Fire in the hole!
The world's burning down, free your soul,
Don't look back! Don't look back!
There's nothing there, so fuck that crap,

Everybody cheered as the world burnt down,
And all the lost things were suddenly found,
This plastic world was the cage for a dream,
But the dream broke free with a deafening scream,

Time to tear it down with our dirty, bare hands,
Time to burn it down and you've got the flame!
Time to tear it down with our dirty, bare hands,
Time to burn it down, burn it all down.
Watch this dying world go up it smoke,
It burns so easy, spreading like a forest fire,
Burn, burn, burn, burn,
Burn it all down!
Burn it down!
