"Lava Life" as written by and Thomas Alexander Dekker....
(If only life could be like this)
(Like this)

I'm gonna set this whole world on fire
And smile while I watch it ignite
And every day there's a new volcano
To erupt and cover me with lava life

If only I could eat life
With a giant spoon
And taste the earth's sweet dangers
Rolling down along my tongue
And chew my way right through the ocean
There would be no mountain that I couldn't climb
And every day the sun would fall
And the whole world would then explode

If only life could be like this
Like this

I'm gonna set this whole world on fire
And smile while I watch it ignite
And every day there's a new volcano
To erupt and cover me with lava life

If only life could be like this
Like this

Where jellyfish were neon and they all knew my name
And I could fly into a technicolor heaven every day
And skies would be ablaze with light
And stars would all be swimming in the palms of our hands
And every dream you ever dreamed would be the life that you would live

If only life could be like this
Like this

And you'll never shed a tear now
And you'll never be brought down now
And you'll never live a dead day
And life will always be this way

I'm gonna set this whole world on fire
And smile while I watch it ignite
And every day there's a new volcano
To erupt and cover me with lava life

There is so much life and magic all around
Filled with such gorgeous sounds
I can't help but believe
That there will come a day
When we can taste our volcano blow

(And you'll never shed a tear now
And you'll never be brought down now
And you'll never live a dead day
And life will always be this way)

I'm gonna set this whole world on fire
And smile while I watch it ignite
And every day there's a new volcano
To erupt and cover me with lava life

    My OpinionFavorite song on the album, along with 'Psyanotic.' Good dance music. ;) Gotta love his voice, too. Of all his music, which tends to be a little on the strange side, this might be one of the more 'normal' songs.
