Miguel Marujo

this House is on fire!

kick off your boots, come and sit a spell

listen to me worry, come and listen well

all you better best come and lean in boys

cause I don't dare to 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 gonna be



soon come, soon come the day this tinderbox

is gonna blow in your face

I don't have the gift of the prophecy

telling everybody how it's gonna 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 prophecy

telling everybody how it's gonna 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 prophecy

telling everybody how it's gonna 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!

[Natalie Merchant, 2001]
