Burning (Vibe Mix)



It was the first day of July

No wind breathed in the sky

When a pin-striped suit

Saw that the Institute of Mental Health was burning.

He stood upon the corner

Where the sun was warmer

Looking across the street

He moved the shackles on his feet

As the Institute was burning

Flames were roaring, singing like a thunderstorm

Smoke was pouring straight up to the sky

Windows smashing, Gothic doors and lintels fall

Timbers crashing and we both know why

Nobody else came by to stare

You see, they didn't really care

Can't call the fire brigade

None of them had been paid

And so the Institute was burning

Throughout the city, people say it isn't pretty

Everyone agrees, and everyone feels glad

Doctored brains celebrate and everyone waves their chains

It's a pity they're all mad

The Institute of Mental Health

Spontaneously killed itself

Ashes to ashes

And dust to dust

My chains began to rust

As the Institute was burning, burning, burning
