at the sun's core

there are people who live
in the core of the sun,
just as there are people
who live in the earth's core -
they toil away all the day long,
working the fire,
creating divine gifts
from the flames in their hearts

have you ever got up in the morning,
and just looked out your window
at that great big ball of fire in the sky?
just look at it, just look at it!
fire, fire, fire! burn, burn, burn!

i want to set fire to the world
(let's set fire to the world),
i want to boil the ocean waters
(let's boil the ocean waters)

let's destroy the whole fucking world with fire!
let's bring down the monuments they have built
and rebuild the pantheon from scratch
