Burn This House

Lyrics by Les Bloch

Greg Kennedy GB Gents


You think that I don’t know the secret places that you go?

You think that I don’t see the words that you call honesty?

You think that I don’t hear the whisper in another ear?

You think that I don’t taste the shadow fall across your face?

I didn’t burn this house down who let a stranger come inside

With matches and gasoline and the look of the Devil in his eyes?

You think that I don’t smell the smoke that’s rising from your tell?

You think that I don’t need a tourniquet to stop the bleeding?

You think that I’m not spent running from this accident?

You think that I’m to blame when you’re the one who lit the flame?

You can have your moment of glory, you can tell your side of the story

Ripping up the fabric that tore us down and burning all around

Hey you think that I don’t know the secret places that you go?

You think that I don’t see the words that you call honesty?

You think that I don’t hear the whispers in another ear?

You think that I’m to blame, when you’re the one who lit the flame?

I didn’t burn this house down who let a stranger come inside

With matches and gasoline and the look of the Devil in his eyes?

I didn’t burn this house down, I didn’t burn this house down, I didn’t burn this house down and nothing will ever be the same
