"Burn It Up" as written by Bryan Keith Holland, Ron Welty, Greg Kriesel and Kevin Wasserman....
I think I'm burning up inside
I think I'll take a little ride
I'm gonna light up everything in sight
I'll drive on by your yard
And throw a Molotov cocktail at your car
Then another in the local bar

Ignition
They call it an obsession but I think it's kinda bitchen'
I think it's kinda neat
Yeah, I'm a pyro
I want to burn it up
Yeah, I'm a pyro

Tonight this 'hood will be a pyre
I'm gonna set your house on fire
I'll dance around the pretty flames
Such a wonderful game

Ignition
They call it an obsession but I think it's kinda bitchen'
I think it's kinda neat
Yeah, I'm a pyro
I want to burn it up
Yeah, I'm a pyro

I want to make a tiki torch
I'm gonna throw it on your porch
Then I'm gonna run away
And come back another day
So many houses, so little time
So many reasons, I'm not a crime
I'd like to set you up
I'd like to set you up

    General CommentThis was the first Offspring song I ever heard. I have always been a pyro and back in middle school my best friend came to me and said, "You gotta hear this, it's like your theme song!" Ever since then, I've loved the Offspring. Not a lot of deep meaning in this song, unlike many of the other Offspring songs, but some awesome lyrics: "I'll dance around the pretty flames, Such a wonderful game." C'mon now, who dosn't want to go torch somthing after hearing this song?

    General CommentIf it's nice outside, wherever you are, please, I urge you, get off your lazy ass and go burn something. Preferably a municipal structure.
