They left me, leaving my house on fire
Me running round got out through the window

While clinging to the skirts of fate was not my idea of fun
I'll jump to it gladly

The town was filled with smoke and hate
Came to my senses just too late
To realize that all I ever owned
Was borrowed I thanked them for having shown
(Me that nothing ever really belongs to anyone)

They burned my books and they broke my car
And gave the dog to a man who used him for breeding

They felled my trees and they tramped flowers
And threw the kitten into my new pool

The same things done to other men had made them run
Away from the city

This being the case, I joined them there and breathing air
Spent the night with these new friends

The town was filled with smoke and hate
Came to my senses just too late
To realize that all I ever owned
Was borrowed I thanked them for having shown
(Me that nothing ever really belongs to anyone)
