lyrics

I’m in my safe house
Where I can see it all
Because I’ve got the high ground
It’s easier to fall

We’re snowed in
And locked out
We’re breathing your smoke
You don’t have to shout

He started a fire
I’m not sure how it was done
He had coal in his pocket
And some form of ignition

He’s burning snow

I’m in my safe house
