R.e.m. - Burning Down Lyrics





From the back of my neck, oh oh oh

Wired a glass jaw, oh oh

Plantation burning your boat is coming in

Strum your jew's-harp, you're reeking gin



Running water in a sinking boat

Going under but they've got your goat

Burning down - my hands are tied my feet are bound

Burning down - can't you see that my hands are bound



Johnny Mike is reading in the yard

His story's timely, oh oh oh

What river is it anyway, radio

Not in a boat, in your ear



Running water in a sinking boat

Going under but they've got your goat

Burning down - my hands are tied my feet are bound

Burning down - can't you see that my hands are bound



You pick your island in the sun

Take your island off he's got a gun

Burning down - my hands are tied my feet are bound

Burning down - can't you see that my hands are bound



He's cooking in the woods, a brush fire in your neck

Feeling mighty mighty, oh oh oh

You can pick your island in the sun

Take your island off he's got a gun



Running water in a sinking boat

Going under but they've got your goat

Burning down - my hands are tied my feet are bound

Burning down - can't you see that my hands are bound
