The Firemen's Ball
Ian Sherwood

I showed up drunk
At the firemen's ball
We picked a hell of a joint
To end it all

You brought your matches
I brought my lighters and my magnifying glasses
We started a war
That ended in ashes

We burned it all
We burned it all
At the firemen's ball

You said our bedroom was vacant
You'd grown complacent
So I spiked the punch
I don't know where my head went

There's no going back
When I told you bout the girl in Chiliwack
We stared a war
Burned everything black


We burned it all
While the town danced a waltz
We burned it all
We burned down the house
While the town danced a waltz
At the fireman's ball


Ashes and ashes and dust to dust
nothing remains of us
