"Flamin' Shoe" as written by and Grant Lee Phillips....
All these rats are swimmin' for the land
They ain't goin' down with the captain
Same old rats that took a bite outa' me
Darling way back when
The word was mutiny

Nothin' but a raft to carry
Me and my girl
They just wrote us off
'Til we turned up blazing torches on their docks well…

One night we're gonna' burn 'em down
One night we're gonna' burn 'em down
One night we're gonna' burn 'em down

And the same goes for those who underestimate
Said the love of my life was just another blind date
You know I hardly had a single word edgewise
Before the true believers started to drop like flies

But I don't see 'em out parading arm in arm
I see 'em dodging cars in harm's way
You think with so many words of wisdom
They could fill up a library

But one night I'd have to burn it down
One night I'd have to burn it down
One night I'd have to burn it down

I can think of at least
Fourteen ways to disappear
No I don't need to be told when it's plain as day I'm in the minority here
But why should all the horrible people have all the cheer

Blue green grass is standing somewhere still
I know it is even if it's over landfill
I got to think that there's still a tiny patch
To raise some hens and watch those chickens hatch

Browsing through the almanac I watch the stars
They plummet now and then
And I'm waiting for a flamin' shoe to drop on us again

One night gonna' burn it down
One night we're gonna' burn it down
We're gonna' burn it burn it burn it burn it down
