I Was in the House When the House Burned Down

I may be old and I may be bent
But I had the money till it all got spent
I had the money till they made me pay
Then I had the sense to be on my way
I had to stay in the underground
I was in the house when the house burned down

I Wish I Was the Moon

No pills for what I fear
This is crazy
I wish I was the moon tonight
