House Fire Lyrics Let's look back on all the things that were said to me. Pull apart the morals and the lessons that were so clear to see. I was raised in the church. I was taught the truth or at least how to repeat it but now I can't be too sure. I never questioned, I never searched for my own. I tried my hardest not to stray from the beliefs of my home. I’ve been trying to remember all the truth that you've said but I get lost with all these doubts and fears there's so much doubt and fear inside my head. Burn it down, let it go up in flames. Let the whole thing be rebuilt. Burn it down, I wanna watch it crumble. I want to know the truth, I want to see your life first hand. Take me to the place where it all began. I know you must have been so different than me. I want to know how you lived and I want to feel your heart beat. I don't just want the stories I want to see it all as if I was there. I want to walk the path you walked and I want to breathe the same air. Cause I can't help but question when I'm still doubting everything. Show me your life from when you were born to when you hung on the tree. I want to see the burial grounds. I want to see the stone rolled away. Filled with doubt; these relentless questions pounding in my head. I want to know the truth, will you answer me? It's as if the Holy Ghost himself came and took me to that place, gathered all my questions at once and swiftly threw them all away. I saw blind eyes opened, I saw mangled bones restored. I heard all your sermons and watched you calm the storms. But I looked down, I took my eyes off you. I lost track and fell back to the same place. Tossed around, I started doubting you. I’m right back to where I began. After seeing all of this and hearing all your promises Id still be in the crowd holding on to my doubt. You’d probably hear me say, "I don't want you to die, I don't want you to die. There must be some other way than this worthless sacrifice. 3 days later just doesn't make sense. I don't want you to die, I don't want you to die. Even if you showed the scars in your hands to me. I think I'd still be filled with doubt and I just wouldn't believe. I wonder if I'll ever be fixed. I don't want you to die, don't waste your time on me."
