about

“Sometimes there are bridges you need to burn in order to see the light,” says vocalist and lyricist Leslie Irene Benson. “Some bad people—and some bad decisions—are carved into us like a knife into flesh. When we lose ourselves, we learn to forget who we truly are. We must start again. We must rebuild ourselves from the inside out.”

PRESS REVIEW:

“‘Burn The City’ is technically a great song for radio broadcasting. This one has the biggest ‘Electrorock’ factor. Sonically it’s a bit more smoother and softer (than the rest of the album). –Thomas Frenken, Electrozombies, Germany, 3.9/5 Stars, Nov. 2, 2016, electrozombies.com/review/sweetest-condition-we-defy-oblivion/

lyrics

“Burn This City” ℗ © 2016 The Sweetest Condition
Lyrics by Leslie Irene Benson | Music by Jason Reed Milner

You watch me strip down.
I show you all my scars.
Peel back the layers
of the years I can’t get back.

You watch me suffer.
I feel alone inside my skin.
Don’t judge the cover,
because you don’t know where I’ve been!

I’m gonna burn this city down,
shake the ashes off your crown!
Bury the time I wasted.
Take all of me you tasted.

I’m gonna burn this city down,
shake the ashes off your crown!
Bury the time I wasted.
Take all of me you tasted.

I feed the fire
and throw down all my cards,
except the Joker.
He’s the one you can’t take back!

I want to
rewrite you,
and paint the picture
I see.

Inside me,
this body,
the stranger
is ready.

I want to
rewrite you,
and paint the picture
I see.

Inside me,
this body,
the stranger
is ready.

I’m gonna burn this city down,
shake the ashes off your crown!
Bury the time I wasted.
Take all of me you tasted.

I’m gonna burn this city down,
shake the ashes off your crown!
Bury the time I wasted.
Take all of me you tasted.

I’m gonna burn this city down,
shake the ashes off your crown!
Bury the time I wasted.
Take all of me you tasted.

I’m gonna burn this city down,
shake the ashes off your crown!
Bury the time I wasted.
Take all of me tasted.
