about

An ode to capitalism, House On Fire is about the current state of our economy and our relationship with profit, colonialism, and the environment. Told from the point of view of the businessman, Conrad Gluch and Geoff Bruce dive into the intended (and unintended) consequences of the search for eternally expanding profits.

lyrics

Mother Nature, what do you owe me?
I've been trying hard to set you free
I can take your dirt and make it gold
Turn your trees to goods that can be sold

If I sell for a profit
I can return this money to you
In the form of a long term loan
That's just gone overdue
Now that you are in our land
We have a duty to you
It's already decided
That this is what's best for you

If I sell for a profit
I can return this money to you
Donate it to your causes
And say it's worthless to you
You lose out if we don't succeed
You can't win if we do
But it's already decided
That this is what's best for you

House on fire won't be coming back
I sure thought we'd win in this attack
With the god of business on our side
You should thank us for the easy ride

If I sell for a profit
I can return this money to you
Donate it to your causes
And say it's worthless to you
You lose out if we don't succeed
You can't win if we do
But it's already decided
That this is what's best for you
