Burnt My Home

from Broken Toy by Dirty Bootz



Burnt My Home

No soul in this letter
I just received from the City Hall
They want me out of my own gutter,
The sweet old place where I learnt to crawl

Where I was born
Some say (it)'s a hole
A hole.

They call it muddy water,
Shit shack and devil's throne
They say I would be better off
in a coffin under a gravestone

They want my home
My home
They need me gone
Me gone.

And Grand Pa's lighter
The night gets brighter.

I wanna burn my home
In this old lonesome town
So they don't take my home
Though they want me dead and gone
And I wanna burn my home
And I say damn their loan
Damn their banks, I'm a slave
And there's nothing left to save
But ourselves
But ourselves
Say you're sorry and save yourselves.

I burnt my home
Can't remember
My life is ashes – lord !
And there's blood 'n laughter

And I will do it again
And I will burn all of you, lads
For what you took from me was priceless
And I did burn my home
burnt my home

The house is down, no more shelter,
I burnt my place and it smells like hell.
But don't frown, I feel better
Next life I live I know you shouldn't dwell

Burn your home
Your home
And roam
