House Been Burnin'

from by Chastity Brown



Try to find the words man, think about the government
Got your shoe tied wrong when, try to get that run in
Gotta get to breathin, try to catch that clean air
I’m just looking for a resting place trying to catch my wind

Who set the fire cause the house been burnin’
Who set the fire cause the house been burnin
Trying to find out but my head keep turning
Who set the fire cause the house been burnin

Hearing all the voices, lifted up in chorus when
They’re lifted high above the flame
But there’s one that’s in the crowd
Whose voice been singled out
Cause it’s been broken, its been strained
Oh just listen to him now
As he’s breakin all his chains!


Now don’t be scared love,
Just do what you got..cause
You know everybody’s been waitin' on you
No don’t be scared love, just do what you got cause
You gotta do what you gotta do
