lyrics

We got some bad news yesterday
We lost the house out on the lake
Some dutch boy pulled his thumb out of the dam

From the penthouse you can watch
The waters crest, if things go south
We can always take the yacht to higher ground

The ice is melting pay no mind
The river’s rising pay no mind
The streets are flooded pay no mind

The bodyguards all called in sick
I spent the morning dodging bricks
Who needs police when you own an armored car

The doormen have been compromised
Don’t take the stairs in case of fire
The helicopter’s fueled and set to go

The mountain's burning pay no mind
The air is burning pay no mind
The city’s burning pay no mind

Flying into Doha on a private jet
Meet security with cash in hand
Air conditioned stretch to the center of town
Ride the elevator to the top of the tower

The ice is melting pay no mind
The river’s rising pay no mind
The streets are flooded pay no mind
The mountains burning pay no mind
The air is burning pay no mind
The city’s burning pay no mind
The streets are burning pay no mind
