I lit a fire on the tracks
and it’s never going out
I’ve got the evidence on hand
and no one’s ever finding out
you better keep your pretty mouth shut
I’m bringing everyone down
now speak softly to me
potential rests in my hands

yeah, come on

how could you do this to us?
after everything we’ve done
oh darling it’s everything you haven’t done
that’s the reason I am done
I am an unforgiving hand
that’s completely given up
I lit a fire
and now I’m watching it spread

you’ve got an army of a thousand men
you’ve got a ship that could rule them all
you’ve got the whole world on your side
look at me - I don’t have anything at all

but there’s still time to make it right
you haven’t given up
I pushed my way to the front of this line
and now it’s my turn
you had your chance and look at the world
I’ve given up on you
and now i’ve given myself up

look at me I have this match in my hand
look at me I have this match in my hand

I lit this fire
and it’s never going out
I lit this fire
and I’m finally going out
