Recorded by Mike McMackin at Dreamland, 1992. Originally released on the Creation Records UK Clock Street EP.


It all started when we were kids
Lighting things on fire
Anything we could get our hands on
Model trains, model cars
And on that day, when the whole house went up
That's when I learned
Everything burns

Now I'm older and things haven't changed
I'm walking down the street with a can of gasoline
I'll take away your car
I'll take away your house
I think it's time you learned
Everything burns

That's right, I'll take it all away
Your car, your house
Your TV, your VCR
Anything I can get my hands on
Your clothes, your cash
Your church, your flag
It's time you learned
Everything burns
