Throwing up at 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 your home when I arrive.
If the there's a pyre in the afterlife,
I'll be there again to light the match.

Burn

Gasoline, 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 your home when I arrive.
If there's a pyre in the afterlife,
I'll be there again to light the match.

I am the light, that warms up your body, that 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 (I was there).
In my fate, I feel the wrath of adrenaline (of adrenaline).

It's so hard, to run away, when I want to stay
(I am the light, that warms up your body, that sets free the demons inside.)

To watch it burn, watch it churn, into dust!
(I am the one, that never ignores you, that never will let you down.)

    The song is about a Husband coming home to fins his best friend with his wife and he runs out and burns the house down with the two trapped inside. using gasoline
    "burning my addiction" means hes burning what he couldent get enough of ^-^ - (His wife of course)

    the last 4 describes how they both loved each other before.
    and how hell never be caught for killing them both he'll only be a suspect. and he doesnt want to leave but hes blinded by the betrayal.
