THE HOUSE IS BURNING DOWN

I had a dream the other night
As real as it could be
I was fighting with my brother
He was fighting with me
We were so busy fighting
We couldn't even see
That while we were fighting
The house was burning down

I was fighting with my brother
Fighting with my brother
Fighting with my brother
And the house was burning down

I woke up all confused and thought
This dream is really wild
'Cause I don't have a brother
I am an only child
Then I thought about the glaciers
Melting mile by mile
Yes we're fighting with our brothers
And the house is burning down

We are fighting with our brothers
Fighting with our brothers
Fighting with our brothers
And the house is burning down
