I am burning in a smoke-choked house, but
Tonight is empty of warm clothes and whispered good-nights;
Riot, disorder, set the banks on fire

Some old war song used to play here
Once I heard it and the sound it made was sad but hopeful
Stand up, be counted, no-one's buying me

    General CommentI thought that he was talking about standing up for something dispite what other people think. Maybe rioting... could just be a metaphor...
