World on Fire is the third single from Deuce's second studio album, Invincible. It features guest vocals from Deuce’s guitarist, James Kloeppel.

Background

On the About page of his website, Deuce writes about the track:

“It’s a story about the end of the world and all of the positive things that will happen even in the face of something bad [...] It’s a positive idea about life after death. You still go on. Musically, it shows how things changed for us up in Portland. That’s melodic classic rock mixed with rap.”

Official lyrics

Deuce: (This world is on fire)
(This world is on fire)

Deuce and James Kloeppel: This world is on fire, we're restless and we're tired
Is there someplace other than this, maybe somewhere higher?
I don't hear no choir, all I see are liars
Is there someplace other than this, maybe somewhere higher?

Deuce: It's hard to make it in a world wasted
All this hatred, I'm impatient
All these changes, different places
Looking sacred, got the aces
James Kloeppel: (Got the aces)
Deuce: Lot of faces, look what we're facing
Across a nation, who can make it?
Yeah, we're racing, I can taste it
Who can change it? It's the Matrix
James Kloeppel: (It's the Matrix)

Deuce and James Kloeppel: Everything has its turn
After all we've learned
What is it we've earned
Just to watch it burn!

This world is on fire, we're restless and we're tired
Is there someplace other than this, maybe somewhere higher?
I don't hear no choir, all I see are liars
Is there someplace other than this, maybe somewhere higher?

Deuce: Empire's fallen, help is calling
Though we all win, we keep crawling
There ain't no sin that we'll fall in
It looks so dim, but we're all in
James Kloeppel: (But we're all in)
Deuce: Through the cold wind, we can see in
We ain't leaving what we believe in
If it's freezing, ain't no reason
We're still breathing, sun is screaming
James Kloeppel: (Sun is screaming)

Deuce and James Kloeppel: Everything has its turn
After all we've learned
What is it we've earned
Just to watch it burn!

This world is on fire, we're restless and we're tired
Is there someplace other than this, maybe somewhere higher?
I don't hear no choir, all I see are liars
Is there someplace other than this, maybe somewhere higher?

Above the carnage, couldn't stop it
Where we started, it was promised
All departed, almost lost it
It restarted through the hardship
Was abolished but accomplished
It was rotted, went the farthest
Earth demolished, wasn't gone yet
Not forgotten, forgive our sins

Everything has its turn
After all we've learned
What is it we've earned
Just to watch it burn!

This world is on fire, we're restless and we're tired
Is there someplace other than this, maybe somewhere higher?
I don't hear no choir, all I see are liars
Is there someplace other than this, maybe somewhere higher?

Maybe somewhere higher
Maybe somewhere higher
Maybe somewhere higher
