My House is Burning Down

Lyrics

 

oh my house is burning down, oh my house is burning down oh my house is burning down 

green mountains turned to wasteland the ocean's turned to brown

planet turned commodity something's going down

criminals in banker's clothes tell you that it's fine

stealing from the future and they're robbing from the blind

oh, and my house is burning down...

when I was a younger child I used to be so free

before I took a number before they got to me

domestication was their game programming the mind

now I sit and wonder how I made it out alive

oh, but my house is burning down...

(Thanks to Jon Mack, John Neighbor, Caryn Simmons and Jim Lindquist for their stellar performances on this song.)
