lyrics

Thirteen-thousand lies or more
The constitution unenforced
Political hacks and money whores
No adults in the room

Squirming under scrutiny
Investigations and inquiry
Guilt beyond all certainty
And Vladimir calls the tune

Now the house is on fire
We're walking on wire
And everyone knows where home is
If you want to resist you have to insist
By raising your fist

Overwhelming evidence
From Giuliani up to Pence
We’ll drain the swamp of the president
Let justice have its day

Black and white simplicity
You're not going to gaslight me
The facts are plain for all to see
Step away

Now the house is on fire
We're walking on wire
And everyone knows where home is
Now resistance is king, it's everything
The strength of the opposition

Weave the cloth with threads
Drawn from your heart
Sew the seeds with tenderness and joy
Build the house as if you lived there now

Now the house is on fire
We're walking on wire
And everyone knows where home is

If you want to resist you have to insist
There's nowhere to hide . . .
