Music & Lyrics by Mark Croft

Well somebody left the light on
Somebody lit the stove
Now the burner's red and the canary's dead
And the house is just about to explode

Somebody turned the pump on
Somebody let it run
But now they're miles ahead and they left us for dead
And they said "we don't have to bother, we're the chosen ones"

The gas is on in the kitchen
The gas is on on the drill
Throw some gas on the fire
because we're gonna heat it up we gotta fight the chill
The gas is on and it itches
The gas is on and it spills
The gas is on in the kitchen
And we're gonna drink it up until we get our fill

Somebody tripped the trigger
Somebody jumped the gun
They crossed the sea because the wanted to believe
That it was to time to make the final end run

Somebody read the writing
Somebody said it right
When somebody said the war was coming to an end
But you know we can always find another war to fight

The gas is on in the kitchen
The gas is on on the drill
Throw some gas on the fire
Because we're gonna heat it up we gotta fight the chill
The gas is on and it itches
The gas is on and it spills
The gas is on in the kitchen
And we're gonna drink it up until we get our fill

The drip-drip-drop that won't stop the big top
Spinning like it’s out of control
the shell is cracking and the big money's backing
The lien and the lease on us all
The hammer that's nailing is paling in comparison
to what you can find underneath
The surface of the ocean is boiling with commotion
And the smell of the blood on the reef
Now the bedrock's getting thicker
And the slick is getting slicker
And it's threatening to double in size
Oh so don't look now,’ cause that big black cloud
Is pouring from the earth and raining the sky

The gas is on in the kitchen
The gas is on on the drill
Throw some gas on the fire
And we're gonna heat it up we gotta fight the chill
The gas is on and it itches
The gas is on and it spills
The gas is on in the kitchen
And we're gonna drink it up until we get our fill

The gas is on in the kitchen
The gas is on on the drill
Throw some gas on the fire
because we're gonna heat it up, heat it up, baby heat it up
The gas is on in the Lincoln
The Cadillac and Coup De Ville
The gas is on in the kitchen
And we're gonna drink it up until we get our fill
