"(I Want To) Burn You [Down]" as written by and Michael Doughty....
Something is reaching me now
Something that lives in the dark of my mind
It's like a small thought is gone
it's like a millstonem ground it to sand, and

Hey soothsayer, listen up
You don't know who I am
Old friend, what if you were right?
Don't wanna be that man

Never known to nap
Not gonna sleep it out
I wanna burn you
Yes, I wanna burn you down

I have a troublesome girl
She treats me like a parole officer
And she checks in from time to time
Always insisting everything's fine

And hey pitboss, listen here
Don't up and throw me out
Oh darling, back me up
Markers showing the route

Never known to nap
Not gonna sleep it out
I wanna burn you
Yes, I wanna burn you

Japanese cowboys put their snowsuits on
I wanna burn you
Yes, I wanna burn you down

Yes, I wanna burn you down

    It's 'her parole officer'. Not just any. He's referring to his now-ex's parole officer specifically.
