Favorite Quote:
Scenery is nothing more than poetry.
Love is nothing more than chemicals.
'Cause fairy tales are just scribbled pages filled with happy endings and little white lies.
One person can make a difference, but a crowd can make a change.


From the rooftops I watch as I burn the city,
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
From the rooftops I watch as I burn the city,
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Everyone's screaming as I burn the city...
I live this life, I made a mistake,
I give everything, in return they just take.
I laugh as the smog fills up this town,
Can't escape, as they gasp for air on the ground.
Never thought I would conspire,
Against my own people with a hellish fire.
Pushed to my limits, I'm unleashing my rage,
Burning this torn book to start a new page.
Like me, they deserve to suffer,
No mercy as they all run for cover.
From the rooftops I watch as I burn the city,
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
From the rooftops I watch as I burn the city,
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Everyone's screaming as I burn the city...
Flames devouring this whole town,
Watch in content as it all burns down.
I've never been so pleased with my work,
It's about time they all share the same hurt.
Pour the gasoline and flick the match,
An expanding hole they'll never patch.
Watch in satisfaction from the rooftops,
One by one, every single body drops.
I sacrificed my humanity to secure this master plan,
Let this wildfire convert this city into a waste land!
From the rooftops I watch as I burn the city,
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
From the rooftops I watch as I burn the city,
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Everyone's screaming as I burn the city...
I look out across the horizon,
See the pillars of flame keep on risin'.
Bodies falling like acid rain on the asphalt,
Restart the world, form a new cult.
You all had your chance at redemption,
But you failed, now this world's in devastation.
Your tears and pleases won't even save you,
Accept your fate, that's the only option available to do.
(Burn the city,
Burn the city,
Burn the city...)
From the rooftops I watch as I burn the city,
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
From the rooftops I watch as I burn the city,
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Everyone's screaming as I burn the city.
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
Oh my god, it never looked so pretty.
It never looked so pretty...
