LyricsEdit

Note: italicized lyrics were not sung in the stage production

When your city's burning
Where you gonna run to?
When your city's burning
Where you gonna run to?

The smell of kerosene is at your door
And your lungs can't seem to take it anymore
Do you ever feel like asking yourself what for?
Got any doubts? Get out in the streets
Check it out!
When your city's burning
Where you gonna run to?

When the sky is hungry
Where you gonna run to?
When the sky is hungry
Where you gonna run to?

The smell of kerosene is at your door
And your lungs can't seem to take it anymore
Do you ever feel like asking yourself what for?
Got any doubts? Get out in the streets
Check it out!
When your city's burning
Where you gonna run to?

When the land is thirsty
Where you gonna run to?
When the land is thirsty
Where you gonna run to?
And you clean your guilty skin with gasoline
Is the fire really there or is it just a dream?
And the color of your world is sweet gangrene
Got any doubts? Get out in the storm, check it out!
When the land is thirsty, where you gonna run to?

When the drums are weeping
Where are we gonna run to?
When the drums are weeping
Where are we gonna run to?
Ooh, I can feel my leg, it's getting wetter
Ooh, I can see your lips are getting redder
Brothers and sisters we all are come together
Got any doubts? Get out in the storm, check it out...
Where are we gonna run to?

Take a trip on a star ship
We've got demon wings to fly
Take a trip on a star ship
And you'll never have to die

Take a trip on a star ship
Give salvation one more try
Take a trip on a star ship
You go higher! You wanna go higher!
You're gonna go higher!
What do you see now?

When your city's burning
Where you gonna run to?
When your city's burning
Where you gonna run to?
