World's On Fire

(I. Hanson / T. Hanson / Z.Hanson)

Lead Singer: Taylor



Watch from a distance, beautiful
Somebody's caught in the undertow
Have you ever felt desperation
'Cause the salt water's filling your lungs?
Will we regret it when we sleep?
Promises never meant to keep
When all that the shadows need
Is a good man to hide in a dream

Do they know that the world's on fire?

Time is a price we can't afford
An empty glass and an open door
You get what you pay for in sweat
And a voice says please don't forget

Do they know that the world's on fire?
Do they know that the time is now?
Do they know that you've got to stand up, stand up?
Use your voice, speak out
Do they know that it's time?

Caught in a maze you can't escape
The flickering lights and the colored lens
The walls that we build just close in
Until we decide to begin

Are we distracted by the sun
The glittering jewels and the beating drums?
Is it going the distance we fear?
Have you heard that we're already here?

Do they know that the world's on fire?
Do they know that the time is now?
Do they know that you've got to stand up, stand up?
Use your voice, speak out
Do they know that the world's on fire?
Do they know that the time is here?
Do they know that you've got to stand up, stand up?
Let your voice be clear
Do they know that it's time?

Some will say
We've gone too far
We're on the edge
We're in too deep
Some will say
That we're too far gone
You can't erase
A tragedy

Do they know that the world's on fire?
Do they know that the time is now?
Do they know that you've got to stand up, stand up?
Well you've got to stand up, stand up
Do they know that the world's on fire?
Do they know that the time is here?
Do they know that you've got to stand up, stand up?
Let your voice be clear
Do they know that it's time?

Do they know?
Do they know?
