Burn Lyrics - Nine Inch Nails

Review The Song (3)



This world rejects me
This world threw me away
This world never gave me a chance
This world gonna have to pay

Well I don't believe in your institutions
I did what you wanted me to
And like the cancer in your system
I've got a little surprise for you

Something inside of me
Has opened up its eyes
Why did you put it there?
Did you not realize?
This thing inside of me
It screams the loudest sound
Sometimes I think I could

Burn

sponsored links
I look down at where you're standing
Flock of sheep all on display
With all your lies piled up around you
I can take it all away

Something inside of me
Has opened up its eyes
Why did you put it there?
Did you not realize
Something inside of me
It screams the loudest sound
Sometimes I think I could

I'm gonna burn this whole world down

I never was a part of you

I am your savior
I am corruption
I am the angel
of your destruction
I am perversion
Secret desire
I am your future
Swallowed up in fire

Massive suicide cordial invitation | Reviewer: you | 11/5/13

It caches the anger we've all felt against the system, each other and ourselves, and it just keeps that feeling down while it rises beneath the skin so it can all be unleashed when he says "I'm gonna burn this whole world down". So cathartic, so perfect.

Amazing Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/4/12

This is one of Trent's best of all time. The blood-curdling screams. The scraping distortion. The resentment. That tight snare beat. Yum.

And of course, visions of Micky and Malory ripping that redneck cafe to shreds doesn't hurt.

Seething | Reviewer: Daniel Bell | 8/28/10

According even to Oliver Stone, this might be, and I agree, Trent's most aggressive song to date.

Appearing originally on the Natural Born Killers soundtrack, in 1994, the song is beautiful and caustic testimony to not only Trent's view of the world and things therein, but that sense of detachment, anger, resentment we feel after being continually ignored by the apathetic, the ignorant, the corrupt banking institutions and, worst of all, each other.

A truly seething and angry song, though with more of a purpose than just angst alone.

In many ways, on many levels, we've all had it.

A definite favorite, from them.
