The day the earth caught fire
We stood outside the world was laughing
And in the city square they cast umbrellas to the sky
The sun above my head was burnin' greedy red
The horns began to blow three cheers for Jericho
The first evacuee I was headed for the sea I saw them
The roadside refugees the boys
With bloody knees who waved
Abandoned cars that lay too tired to drive away
A world in flames today was all the papers had to say
Run for your life the earth's caught fire
Run for your life the earth's caught fire run run run
Run for your life the earth's on fire
Run for your life the earth's on fire run run run
The streetcar prophet said
You thought that God was dead I warned you
The sinners and the saved
They fell down to their knees and prayed
Believers held their breath and stoned a witch to death
The leaders and the led said blow the bloody reds away
Run for your life the earth's caught fire
Run for your life the earth's caught fire run run run
Run for your life the earth's on fire
Run for your life the earth's on fire run run run
Run for your life the earth's caught fire
Run for your life the earth's caught fire run run run
Run for your life run for your life
Run for your life the earth's on fire run for your life
