Burn It Down

Some men want to watch the world burn
And thereís a girl waiting for her turn
Waiting for the coming fall
Waiting for a hurt to rival them all

She knows deep down heís already gone
She knows deep down that she was wrong
Love wasnít enough to conquer
Words werenít enough to be honoured

Some men want to watch the world burn
And thereís a girl watching, concerned
She knows there will be hell to pay
Knows that he will rue the day

He acts so callous, like he doesnít care
None of his demons is he willing to share
And she knows, she knows
All the things that he wonít show

Some men want to watch the world burn
Leave no one unbroken, no love upturned
Because it is so easy to self destruct
And pretend like love isnít enough

All the promises, all the lies
All the secrets she did confide
And for what? A memory of yesterday
When yesterdays begin to fade

Some men want to watch the world burn
Because this love he says he didnít earn
So much hate for the man within
So much hate for a man that sins

And there is a girl that doesnít mind
There is a girl thatís been unkind
A girl that would give it all away
To give this love just one more day

Some men want to watch the world burn
And she wonders if he will ever learn
Before he finds himself buried six feet below
Without experiencing a love that glows

She knows deep down, she canít save him
And there are days she wants to hate him
She just wants him to see his worth
Believe for a second that he isnít cursed

Some men just want to watch the world burn
Because the truth is, love hurts
