"The Danger in Starting a Fire" as written by Jeremy Wade Mckinnon, Joshua Steven Woodard, Neil S Westfall, Thomas H Denney Jr. and Alexander Thomas Shelnutt....
So now you'll know exactly what it feels like
To be an obstacle in my way you won't remain, you won't remain
Save your breath, don't even speak
If you'll speak of change, 'cause you won't, you won't
Cut to the chase, spare the lecture
On what it takes to be a man
'Cause you're weak and I'm strong
I will never falter, I'll stand my ground

You're fake, a worthless coward your life won't mean anything
You're fake, a worthless coward your life won't mean anything

So now you'll know exactly what it feels like
To be an obstacle in my way you won't remain, you won't remain
Let's set things straight what's done is done
I never needed you

Tell me exactly who you think that your kidding?
Everyone will be happy when they find that you're missing
You asked if we'd ever forget you,
We've got our fingers crossed, our fingers crossed

That's the danger in starting a fire
You'll never know how many bridges you'll burn
You'll never know how many bridges you'll burn

    General CommentI think the song is based on a great friend abandoning him for no reason so in anger he made this song to tell his friend that he never needed him as a friend because he didn't do anything but ruin his life more and he is better now without the friend...
