About the song
I wrote this in December 2004 driving home from a gig, contemplating the state of the world, like you do, and I've just got round to finishing it off. The chords wrote themselves and the tune was just as I first heard it. There’s live bass, 4 acoustic guitar tracks, 8 voices, piano and Hammond organ. A few strings, bells and ‘Angel voices’ finish it off.

Lyrics
Chorus
Wake up God! The house is on fire.
Wake up God! The flames are getting higher.
I tapped your window by throwing stones,
And you don't hear your telephone, please
Wake up God! The house is burning down.

Verse 1
You made me in your image, and I made you in mine,
But soon as you had finished you fell asleep for a very long time.
I found a box of matches you hid on the shelf,
And one thing led to another and I set fire to myself.
I put me out and then went out for a bite,
When I got back all the house was alight!

Chorus
Wake up God! The house is on fire.
Wake up God! The smoke is swirling higher.
I broke your window by throwing stones,
And you don't hear your telephone,
Wake up God! The house is burning down.

Verse 2
I called your friend the Fire-Chief, but he won't do a thing.
I asked the Herald Angels, but all they do is sing.
Accidents will happen, look what you've begun
So come on Heavenly Father, take care of your son.
If you won't wake what will I do?
I can save myself, but who will save you?

Chorus
Wake up God! The house is on fire.
Wake up God! The flames are reaching higher.
I broke your window by throwing stones,
And you won't hear your telephone,
Wake up God! The house is burning down.

Chorus
(Wake up God!) Wake up! Wake up God!
(Wake up God!) Come on wake up! Hey!
I broke your window by throwing stones,
And you've switched off your mobile phone, come on
Wake up God! Your house is burning down!!!
