Douse your anger in kerosene
Does anyone want to play?
Strike the match, lit by a child’s laugh
And watch your petty problems
Melt away

Life is the popping fat on the carcass
Of dead memories and dying wishes
Suffering from a lack of attention
Fueled by the collective emotions
Yearning to be free
Burning in you and me

Chorus
Douse your sorrow in kerosene
Does anyone want to play?
Strike the match, lit by a child’s laugh
And watch your petty problems
Melt away

Set your soul aflame
Watch it be devoured by
The greed and corruption
Taking root in a cracked flower vase
Contents spill onto your upturned face
Dripping its lies
Burning your eyes

Douse your frustration in kerosene
Does anyone want to play?
Strike the match, lit by a child’s laugh
And watch your petty problems
Melt away

Swirling inferno
Spinning round inside my mind
Destroying everything in its path
Leaving nothing behind
Purge the ashes of your burnt-out hollow core
Let them drift and scatter in the wind
Follow them into the dark
Hiding hate, corruption, and sin

Where a single candle flickers
Lone flame dancing in the night
Dancing shadows by the light
In the forest of weeping trees
Waiting for nothing
Nothing but a breeze

Douse your grief and shame in kerosene
Does anyone want to play?
Strike the match, lit by a child’s laugh
And watch your problems
Melt away
Cleansed by the flame
Let it set you free
And watch all of your petty problems
Melt away
