Watch out you might get what youre after
cool babies strange but not a stranger
i'm an ordinary guy
burning down the house

hold tight wait till 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 back: time for jumpin' overboard
the transportations here
close enough but not too far, maybe you know where you are
fightin' fire with fire

all wet hey you might need a raincoat
shakedown dreams walking in broad daylight
three hun-dred six-ty five de-grees
burning down the house
it was once upon a place sometimes i listen to myself
gonne come in first place
people on their way to work baby what did you expect
gonna burst into flame

my house s'out of the ordinary
that's might don't want to hurt nobody
something sure can sweep me off my feet
burning down the house

no visible means of support and you have not seen nothing yet
everythings stuck together
i don't know what you expect starring into the tv set
fighting fire with fire
