The Lyrics

You know, even if they do have a legitimate grievance, they didn't really help themselves when they decided to use the incident as an excuse to trash the place. I mean while it's true that Missouri didn't have a good history when it comes to race relations but what the hell is this?
Ferguson is burning
They're storming the street
They're wrecking the houses
Such insanity

The insanity
Everything is turning
Everything is turning
The insanity
Everything is turning
Everything is turning

Ferguson is burning
They're running their feet
They're smashing the windows
Such intensity

Such intensity
Nobody is learning
Nobody is learning
Such intensity
Nobody is learning
Nobody is learning

Ferguson is burning
Don't you see?
Ferguson is burning
Such hypocrisy

They'll loot every time
Turn heads from the crime
Sputtering...
The infamous race bait

At such insanity
Ferguson is burning
Ferguson is burning
At such insanity
Ferguson is burning
Ferguson is burning

Ferguson is burning, ha ha!
I can see! (It's beautiful!)
Ferguson's burning
The intensity

Ferguson is burning
Ferguson is burning
Ferguson is... burning
Ferguson is burning
Ferguson is burning
Ferguson is burning

Normally I don't care about this but when the whole issue escalates, I can't help but jump the bandwagon when it comes to writing parodies for such event.
