Poppy said on BBC Radio6 on the song’s radio debut that “LONDON’s BURNING is a song I wrote based around Brexit and the colonial legacy that we have in the UK and the idea that you know, we’ve colonized many parts of the world and we’ve ruined many communities. And then when it comes to opening our doors to people in need were so quick to turn our backs and I think this song asks us to, or demands us to, recognize the impact immigrants have had on building this country…”

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Madness highway
Driving to the edge of fate
You say come what may
In our heyday we’d mould our world out of clay
Looks like the bed you made you’ll lay

[Chorus]
London’s burning
Burning itself to the ground
Looks like we got nothing left to take

[Verse 2]
Oceans parting
Could you swim to the other side?
Or drown beneath the lies?

[Bridge]
Little island thinks that it’s a globe
Shuts its doors
It Implodes
Youth uprising
We don’t want to go
If you shut your doors you implode

[Chorus]
London’s burning
London’s burning
London’s burning
Burning itself to the ground
To the ground
To the ground
London’s burning
London’s burning
London’s burning
Burning itself to the ground
To the ground
Looks like we got nothing left to take
