Lyrics

Burn This Whole House Down

I’m at home, I’m with my stuff
A few collections but they’re never enough
These are the things I need most in this world
You see the oysters, I see the pearls

One was good so I got four
I’ll never know when I need more
I ‘m good at shopping, my ex-wife said
Clothes never worn and books never read

One of these days I’m gonna clean this all up
One of these days I‘m gonna clean this all up
My best buddy’s got a pretty big truck
One of these days I’m gonna clean this all up

Oh what have I done?
Oh what have I done?
I can’t let mama see what I’ve become
I’ve got to Burn This Whole House Down

I’m at home, yeah, I’m really here
No one came by for my birthday last year
I got some presents, things you’ll never see
Things really mean something to me

One of these days I’m gonna clean this all up
One of these days I‘m gonna clean this all up
My best buddy’s got a pretty big truck
One of these days I’m gonna clean this all up

My brother came today
Wanted to haul this all away
Oh, but he could not stay…

One man’s treasure may look like trash
But this is my home within these stacks
And I don’t want it to land on me
But I know my treasure won’t abandon me

One of these days I’m gonna clean this up
One of these days I‘m gonna clean this up
My best buddy’s got a pretty big truck
One of these days I’m gonna clean this up

Oh what have I done?
Oh what have I done?
I can’t let mama see what I’ve become
I’ve got to Burn This Whole House Down
