lyrics

The fire burned for days across the river from where we stood
Destroyed everything we made all of the bad along with the good
Pigeon holed without a purpose they took our jobs they took our voice
Automated our whole lives disconnection never a choice

You said we wouldn't be any trouble to the stakeholders the board or the analyst
To build a world you need an architect to burn it down you need an arsonist

Zero lives were lost the smoke ring souls that night were just machines
The guns that fired when they found us killed unarmed men without a guilty plea

You said we wouldn't be any trouble but to take us out you know we might be a catalyst
To build a world you need stability to shake things up you need an arsonist

The few of us that got away vowed to blaze a better world
At least a footnote in history aline in a song, a point in the record

You said we wouldn't be any trouble
Just a small group of bleeding heart socialists
To spin a story you need a media empire
