burning down the house

nothing to add. just nothing.

by The Talking Heads

Watch out - You might get what you're after
Cool baby - Strange but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Burning down the house

Hold tight - Wait 'til the party's over
Hold tight - We're in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house

Here's your ticket pack your bag
Time for jumpin' overboard
Transportation is here

Close enough but not too far
Maybe you know where you are
Fightin' fire with fire

All wet - Yeah you might need a raincoat
Shakedown - Thieves walking in broad daylight
Three hundred sixty five degrees
Burning down the house

It was once upon a place
Sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place

People on their way to work
Say baby what did you expect
Gonna burst into flame

My house - S'out of the ordinary
That's right - Don't want to hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

No visible means of support
And you have not seen nothing yet
Everything's stuck together

I don't know what you expect
Staring into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire

Burning down the house
