"Alan's On Fire" as written by and Poison Idea Jerry Lang....
Go!
All my life I have been used by you
Time has come our game of love is through
Since I was born I've lived in the cold I've lived in the dark
Now I want heat now I want light igniting spark
I'm not a martyr but I am truth and you are a liar
But now my life of constant sadness goes up in the fire

I will
Be heard
And I will
Be heard

Step on me I'm here for you to see
I hope you choke as I go up in flames
I told you my problems but you never heard a word
This is the moment for once in my life I will be heard
I know there must be a better way but I don't know how
You've lied to me and you've ignored me
but you won't now

I will
Be heard
And I will
Be Heard

All my life I have been used by you
Time has come our game of love is through
A burning passion from a burning mass
reaches up for the sky
I've called you here my devoted family turn to watch me die
I'm not a martyr but I am truth and you are a liar
So now my life of constant sadness goes up in the fire

Yeah!

One, two, three, four

    General CommentI think it's about living with abuse for your entire life, but then finding your time to shine, your time of success, and happiness and true freedom, even if that means destroying some of yourself, only to have your abuser/oppressor see. Like wanting them so badly to see how you've become more powerful than them, at any cost.

    General CommentThis is a cover. Poison Idea did this I enjoy both versions but i'll admit MH's is more aggressive.
