Story Behind the Song

So, yeah, everybody's house is burning down. That's the sad truth of these times as we all collectively hasten the demise of the planet that gives us life. Individually, we strive against the forces of destruction, but there seems no stopping the juggernaut of profit and growth that fuels the destruction. Global warming, toxic pollution, overpopulation, the rise of pandemic diseases, our chemically dependent agriculture....So, yes, a protest song for these end times. Guitars used: Gretsch 5622T, '79 Guild Starfire IV, Vintage Modified Strat, '78 Guild S-60, Fender (Squier) Jaguar SS bass.

Lyrics

When Your House Is Burning Down
Words & Music by Timothy Walsh

Tell me what you're doing when your house is burning down?
Maybe have a few drinks go out on the town?
Tell me what you're doing as our planet's grinding down?
Tell me what you're doing when your house is burning down?

CHORUS: Tell me what you're doing when your house is burning down?

Tell me what you're doing as we suck this planet dry?
Maybe go online figure out what you will buy?
Tell me what you're doing as we all live this big lie?
Tell me what you're doing as we suck this planet dry?

CHORUS: Tell me what you're doing when your house is burning down?

BRIDGE: You say you're dreaming of roses and you want to be
somewhere far away.
The problem it poses is there's no place left for you to run to
in this world today.

Tell me how you're sleeping when your house is burning down?
Maybe take a pill so you won't even hear a sound?
Tell me how you're coping as our world comes tumbling down?
Tell me how you're sleeping when you're house is burning down?

CHORUS: Tell me what you're doing when your house is burning down?
