Burning Down the House!~



Chained to a Cliff for Burning Down the Temple;
It
Turned Out Prometheus Was A Pyromaniac!
In court
his Lawyers kept attacking his Liver!
Then they hired him to burn down buildings!
Burning
down houses for just a quick buck!
So they could collect the insurance money.
Claiming Global Warming For The Fires!

Boom Baby, Strange But Not A Stranger!
The Time Has Come To Jump Overboard!
Hold Tight, We’re In For Nasty Weather!
You... Just... Might... Get... What... You... Ask... For!
Here’s your ticket
s here’s your bags!

Don’t forget to go to the Bathroom!
Your transportation is finally here,
Close enough is never Far Enough!
Book your next... passage to Mars!
Build...
Your Dream Bomb Shelter!

Burning Down The House!
Maybe... You... Know... Where... You... Are,
Fighting All Your Fires With Fire!
Find Princely Deals at Fire Sales,
See California Wineries, Drunk!
Maybe you know where to Shop!
Hey we might all Need Raincoats!
Three...Hundred...Sixty...Five... Degrees!
Clowns Burning Down The House!
Cooking Everything That’s Left Alive!
People surprised on their way to work!
As
their Cars Suddenly Burst into Flames!
As I
race past them on my way to First place!
Everybody knows that you have to play in order to
Win!
No visible means of support and you ain't seen
Nothin' yet!
Everything's stuck
Together and I don't know what to expect.
Starring into the TV Set, Watching Them All, Fighting Fire with Fire!
Pyromania could be the next fashion trend if things don’t cool down.

Velvet Jesus Just Left Chicago… And He’s Bound For New Orleans…

Velvet Jesus Just Left Chicago… And He’s Bound For New Orleans…

Then Out To California, Through The Burning Forests and The Pines!

Take Me With You Velvet Jesus, Velvet Elvis Has Left The Building…

Take Me With You Velvet Jesus, Velvet Elvis Has Left The Building…

You Don’t Have To Worry… Cause Takin’ Care Of Business Is His Name!~
(Talking Heads,
ZZ Top)
