I saw a light tonight
It shined mighty bright
Saw it through my open door
While I heard a thundering roar
Of something that exploded down there
So I have been in confused fear
Got up and followed that blood-red shine
'Cause I felt a warning sign

Seems to be
Big misery

Oh, that house was burning down
Couldn't see if there's somebody 'round
I got a dreadful feeling deep inside
Oh I just cried

I was running for my life
To save the sleeping children and wife
But when I reached that burning house
I was standing in front of a crowd
Of helpless people were staying around
They watched the flames and their crying was loud
I asked a man who was standing near by
How could it happen, when and why
He said

Seems to be
Big misery

It's burning down, it's burning to the ground
It's a lot of pain when you see it was all in vain
They worked every day, every night, every hour in their life
With a faith that we all have before it's getting late
But you see it can be when you're thinking
You are free, and you're proud, what you've done
That's a fraud - it could be gone

Take care of illusion
It shares with confusion
Take care of illusion
It shares with confusion
Take care of illusion
It shares with confusion

Look, you are young, and I think
You are not the only one
Who would help with that faith
That I meant before it's late

So go, try your best, save their life
You can't save their happiness

It's up to you
Try to get through

Oh, they have been still alive
And soon they opened up their eyes
As they remembered, they began to moan
No, that man was not wrong
