In my new novel, The Dead Beat, someone possibly burns their own house down by accident. I liked that idea a lot, and found myself chewing it over for ages. This song is the result.
Haven't you ever desired
To lose all your things in a fire
Burn all your memories down
To ashes and dust on the ground
Welcome to the fire sale
Everything must go
So we can start again
Haven't you ever been scared
To lose all your troubles and cares
Bury yourself underground
And scatter the flowers all around
How can you stand there and say that you're innocent?
