This house is on fire!
Kick off your boots, come sit a spell.
Listen to me worry, come and listen well
All you better best come and lean in boys,
I don't dare raise my voice
I've been sitting here for the longest time reading all the warning and the danger signs
I don't have the gift of the prophecy,
Telling everybody how it's going to be

Soon come, soon come the day this tinderbox
Is gonna blow in your face
I don't have the gift of the prophesy,
Telling everybody how it's going to be
You go passing wrong for right
And right for wrong
People only stand for that for just so long

It's all gonna catch like a house on fire,
Spark an evil blaze and burn higher
Well, I don't have the gift of the prophesy, Telling everybody how it's going to be
You go passing wrong for right
And right for wrong
People only stand for that for just so long
I don't have the gift of the prophesy,
Telling everybody how it's going to be
There's a wild fire catching
In the whip of the wind
That could start a conflagration
Like there has never been
This house is on fire!
