Phoenix Lyrics

Hook:
We're burning, down
We're burning, down

Verse:
I used to hate the ones who knew
The problem was with you
But you're only giving 70
In everything you do
It's no wonder you're in bed
Still stuck up in your head
Like, 'I'm so numb and lonely,
But I'm not even dead.'
But it's all your fault
That just needed to be said
I'm not trying to be mean
But it gets embarrassing
To have this conversation
Like we're only 13
Can't just say eventually
Then things start happening
Now pull yourself together man
You can't just run away
You've got to be the one
That'll save yourself today
No damsel in distress
You don't need a princess
To save you from yourself
You're not stuck up on that shelf
So no more feeling doubt 
You have got to work it out
Plant yourself in that chair
Grab ideas from the air
Mount that pen in your hand
And show the world 
Just who I am

Hook:
We're burning, down
(We're burning)
We're burning, down
(To the ground)
We're burning, down 
(We're burning, down)
We're burning, down
(To the ground)

Verse:
Focus, keep on focusing
That paper meets that ink
Spill everything inside of you
Everything you've dreamed
Concentrate so hard
That the only words you see
Are the only words that get you there
'I believe in me'
Then drown them in that ink
That black, that white, that pink
I know the flames, yes they burn
Respect is what you've got to earn
The only reason you're alive
The only way that you survived
She emphasized you've gotta try
She sang to you when you cried
Now put your vices down
Cause there is no great escape
Build that bridge of light
That'll lead you to be great
She told you that you're perfect
Now prove it with your work ethic
Show her you are worth it
And not afraid and hard workin'
There's trouble in the river bend
Hold your pen we're jumpin' in
Tonight's the night
You saved my life
And now I'm here to make it right
It seems to me you're last to know
Please listen now you have to know
Nobody knows

Hook:
We're burning, down 
(We're burning) 
We're burning, down 
(To the ground) 
We're burning, down  
(We're burning, down) 
We're burning, down 
(To the ground)

Spoken:
Sometimes, when people feel the heat
They just wanna run away, go back to what they were doin'
But sometimes, you just have to burn it all down
Rebuild, and rise from the ashes

Closing Verse:
I'm not giving up, 
But I'm giving up on doubt
This might get me down,
But it'll never get me out
I'm writing all these lines 
To show the world what I'm about
Then I'm taking all these ashes
Packing up, and then I'm out

Hook: 
We're burning, down 
(We're burning) 
We're burning, down 
(To the ground) 
We're burning, down  
(We're burning, down) 
We're burning, down 
(To the ground)
