I smell smoke on the holy ground
I feel the heat, something's coming down

I'm barely awake in this midnight hour
Under the spell of a numbing power
I can taste flames in the scorching light
How I wish I was dreaming
Wrong and not right
I wish i was wrong and not right, right

How can I hesitate
It's getting harder to breathe
In the grey smoke hanging
Suffocating me

The house is on fire (x8)

The walls are alive in this red hot blaze
Shout to the sleepers through the terminal haze
As the sparks fly up and the flames reach higher
Call me what you will but I ain't no liar

The house is on fire (x13)
