I´ve been put down and been the target of scorn.
So many times I´ve cursed the day I was born.
Tasted every taste and done all to the max.
I´ve survived this long thanks to pills and twelvepacks.
It´s all been hazy but one thing I know.
No use to fight it when you´ve sunk so low.
Can´t take the pressure so I bring out the torch.
Found my dead girlfriend on the front porch.

THAT´S WHAT DID IT FOR ME, THAT´S WHEN I LIT THE FLAME.
THAT´S WHEN PETROLEUM HELPED ME TO GET AFTERLIFE FAME.
I GOT BACK TO ONE, GOT RID OF ALL THAT´S BEEN WITH A MATCH AND GASOLINE..

Yeah I was put down and the target of scorn.
Sure I´m a coward but I don´t think you´ll mourn.
The tastes I tasted was just to get away.
To escape the pain and block out the things you´d say.
I stand here ready with a can of sauce.
Self-inflicted combustion and you´re the cause.
A gruesome sight but I won´t feel the flames.
The fire is the only thing that cleans the stains.

THAT´S WHAT DID IT FOR ME, THAT´S WHEN I LIT THE FLAME.
THAT´S WHEN PETROLEUM HELPED ME TO GET AFTERLIFE FAME.
I GOT BACK TO ONE, GOT RID OF ALL THAT´S BEEN WITH A MATCH AND GASOLINE..
