Intro: Gm Gm The sky is red, I don't understand; F/G past midnight I still see the land. Gm People are sayin' the woman is damned, C Gm she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.___ The city's ablaze, the town's on fire; F/G the woman's flames are reachin' higher. Gm We were fools, we called her "liar"; Bb F C Gm Eb C Gm All I hear is "Burn!"_____________ I didn't believe she was devil's sperm; she said, "Curse you all, you'll never learn! When I leave there's no return!" The people laughed till she said, "Burn!" Warning came, no one cared; earth was shakin', we stood and stared. When it came no one was spared; Still I hear "Burn!" Dm Bb You know we had no time, Am Bb we could not even try,______ Dm Bb/D C/D Gm You know we had no time. The sky is red, I don't understand; past midnight, I still see the land. People are sayin' the woman is damned; she makes you burn with a wave of her hand. Warning came, no one cared; earth was shakin, we stood and stared. When it came no one was spared. Still I hear "Burn!"
