A Pleasure to Burn We now conclude our broadcast day Barely heard from drawn ever more deeply Turn off the news in the atmosphere A self-fulfilling prophecy in fear I know what your words will be In the cobalt eyes of Julie It was a pleasure to burn Such a pleasure to burn It was a pleasure to burn Such a pleasure to burn Before the die is cast Turn to ash in their mouths It was a pleasure to burn Such a pleasure to burn It was a pleasure to burn Such a pleasure to burn Spent an evening with an image Of all the things Pay this visage Before the die is cast away Turn to ash in their mouths a human play a madhouse Spend the evening with an image It was a pleasure to burn Such a pleasure to burn It was a pleasure to burn Such a pleasure to burn
