Lyrics:Books are burning
In the main square, and I saw there
The first eating the text
Books
are burning
In the still air
And you know where they burn books
People are
next
I believe the printed word should be forgiven
Doesn't matter what it said
Wisdom
hotline from the dead back to the living
Key to the larder for your heart and head
Books
are burning
In our own town, watch us turn 'round
And cast our glances
elsewhere
Books are burning
In the playground
Smell of burnt book is not unlike human
hair
I believe the printed word is more than sacred
Beyond the gauge of good or
bad
The human right to let your soul fly free and naked
Above the violence of the fearful
and sad
The church of matches
Anoints in ignorance with gasoline
The church of
matches
Grows fat by breathing in the smoke of dreams
It's quite obscene
Books are
burning
More each day now, and I pray now
You boys will tire of these games
Books are
burning
I hope somehow, this will allow
A phoenix up from the flames
