'Take All You Need To Live Inside'

By Elton John and Bernie Taupin
You tell me there's an angel in your tree
Did he say he'd come to call on me
For things are getting desperate in our home
Living in the parish of the restless folks I know

Everybody now bring your family down to the riverside
Look to the east to see where the fat stock hide
Behind four walls of stone the rich man sleeps
It's time we put the flame torch to their keep
Burn down the mission
If were gonna stay alive

Watch the black smoke fly to heaven
See the red flame light the sky
Burn down the mission

Burn it down to stay alive
Its our only chance of living

Take all you need to live inside
Deep in the woods the squirrels are out today
My wife cried when they came to take me away
But what more could I do just to keep her warm

Than burn burn burn burn down the mission walls
