"I Am The Arsonist" as written by Shane Told, Neil Boshart and Paul Koehler....
Throwing up with the thought of you two
How could you do this?
My best friend with my bride
Now you tell me you are leaving

They'll see your fire through the dark night sky
I hope you're home when I arrive
If the there's a fire in the afterlife
I'll be there again to light the match, burn

Gasoline and fire
Is the perfect combination
Light it up, burn it down
Burning my addiction

They'll see your fire through the dark night sky
I hope you're home when I arrive
If there's a fire in the afterlife
I'll be there again to light the match

I am the light that warms up your body
And sets free the demons inside
I am the one that never ignores you
That never will let you down

They'll suspect but they'll never prove I was there
In my fate I feel the wrath of adrenaline

I am the light that warms up your body
(It's too hard to run away when I watch you stay)
That sets free the demons inside
I am the one that never ignores you
(To watch it burn, watch it churn into dust)
That never will let you down

    General Comment"If theres a PYRE in the afterlife
    Ill be there again to light the match"


    A pyre is a structure, usually made of wood, for burning a body as part of a funeral rite. As a form of cremation, a body is placed upon the pyre which is then set on fire.


    Pyre makes a lot more sense, because you cant do anything to an already-lit fire with a match 0_o
    lol

    General Commentthis was the last song of this album awaiting lyrics, im guessing cause they weren't the easiest to understand haha but i gave it a shot, might be a mistake or two, if you think so let me know
    also i completely left out two lines cause i really had no idea, the one after "It's too hard to run away" and the one after "To watch it burn, to watch it churn" if you think you know em let me know and ill be happy to add them and fix any other mistakes

    hope this helps

    as far as the meaning, i think its pretty obvious
    his girl cheats on him with his best friend
    he is furious and says he wants to burn his girl and possibly his friend too? to death
    he talks about doing this again in the afterlife
    i wouldnt say this is to be taken literally obviously, just expressing his rage
    he goes on to say how he was always there for her and that no one will be able to prove he was the one that burned her to death
    idk thats just how i see it
    lemme know what you think

    General Commenti think you're so right!
    but i figured out what he says at the end


    It's too hard to run away
    (When I watch you stay)
    To watch it burn, watch it churn
    (Into dust)

    General Commentlol i'm really sorry again,
    but also i'm pretty sure in the chorus also it says

    They'll see your fire through the dark"night" sky
    If there's a "pyre" in the afterlife
    I'll be there again to light the match

    General CommentTo watch it burn, watch it turn,
    Into dust.
