Day #100: Burn Down the Mission

Burn Down the Mission
(from The Mayor of London album)

Tell me there’s a place for me
In this world and I’ll believe you
I’ll set sail and claim my land
And all I’ll ask is for the truth

There’s so many walls around it
Built and filled with ancient lies
Many years since it’s been questioned
Truth can’t grow til comfort dies

Chorus:
It’s time to burn down the mission
All those old-time ways of living
It’s time to burn down the mission
All those old-world ways of thinking
There’s nothing here for me
Clear out the halls and see
The time has come to burn it all down

You want me to have a better life
Only in the shadow cast by yours
I’d rather live and die inside the light
You can only see from open doors

Chorus
