"I Set my Friends on Fire" as written by William Roy Francis, Nicholas Alexander Wiggins, Angel Dejesus Ibarra, Jacob Wambold and Jacob Samuel Davison....
Iset) I set (myfriends) My friends on fire (fire)
well I looked at your grave I do not feel alive
(I set) I set (myfriends) My friends on fire (fire)
well I looked at your eyes I do not feel alive.
I set (I set) My friends (myfriends) on fire now I will give up
(I set) I set (myfriends) my friends (fire) on fire, now I will give my life.
If I tell you now I will not feel alive,
If I kill you now I will not feel pride,
If I kill you now I have set those fields on fire,
what's this? One More Time
Burn-Lies-Lies-one more time,
Burn-Lies-Lies-set, one more time
[whispers]
tisiv ot ecalp ecin a si lleh
hell is a nice place to visit.
yaaaaa/yaaaaaa/well I gave one more time,
yaaaaa/yaaaaaa/well I gave one more time now,
"The sun came through the leaves and lit them
up like it was on fire, Right at sunset"
Let's look the world into the eyes (like it was on fire) and say
just one more time (likeitwasonfire), much less.
Let's look the world into the eyes (like it was on fire) and say
just one more time, one more time.
yaaaaaaaaa/one more/
yaaaaaaaaa/one more time/
one more life when I pray it's time.
When I gave one more time, to lie into
the after life, one more time/I/praise/one more LIE

    General CommentThere is a scene in Interview With The Vampire where Louis (a vampire) sets the coffins of all the other sleeping vampires aflame...


    P.S.-This site is supposed to be full of comments on the meanings of songs, not how much they "kick ass"

    General CommentThis song is about how you sometimes just want your friends to die, about friends that betrayed you and you will never trust them again, 'hell is a nice plae to visit' in hell you will be lonely and burn, that's how he feels and he wants his 'friends' to feel the same

    General CommentI was just wondering....is Aiden an anti-Christian or Satanic band? I really like the few songs I've heard from them, and I want to buy their new CD. But I don't listen to or buy CD's from artists who are Satanist or anti-Christian, especially if they have Satanic or anti-Christian songs on their CD. I was just wondering if any of ya'll know rather they are or not. PLEASE tell me soon.:)

    General Commentwell judging from the songs they don't sound ANTI Christian. I mean, they might not be about very safe subjects, but they dont sing about being against god. and i think i might have seen Will wearing a cross necklace once.. maybe..

    General CommentI'd have to say that I agree with LifeFadingAway, in that when your friends betray you, you just want them to die a horrible, horrible death.

    And as for Christianrockergirl's question: I'm almost positive that they AREN'T Satanic or Anti-christian, though they do have a pentagram on their site. I believe that the use of the symbol is just part of their "darker" look and style, it doesn't mean anything really.

    General CommentI like LifeFadingAway's meaning, but in response to Christianrockergirl's question, I wouldn't consider this a satanic band, but I think Wil feels as if God has given up on him. I mean, Wil was kicked out of his house at a young age, did every drug imaginable, stole cars, shoplifted, and saw his friends overdose and die right in front of him(this all comes from an AP interview with him), all before he was 18. This isn't to say that he would put anti god lyrics in his songs. I mean, in the thankyou section of the nightmare cd it says thanks to god and the devil for making the world interesting. I doubt this would have been said if the band was anti god.

    General Commentdude, just leave, there has got to be something better for you to do then come on a messege board, generalize and stereotype people because they listen to a decent band, and then call them fags. I mean seriously, fags? Pandas dick? you can't be much older then 14. You must feel like some huge man sitting behind a computer screen and calling people names for no other reason then the band they listen to.
