The Lyrics

A hot topic!
Just a small town guy on a wild Friday night, waitin’ just to light up the night
In the day-time world no one sees him at all, they all think he's crazy

Got off in life to a real bad start, turning matches into strife
He has dropped into the danger zone, fire puts him into a trance

Never know where he will strike, accelerant turns to fire
His desire is for something new burning

Pyromaniac, maniac douses floors
And he's spraying petrol like never before
Pyromaniac, maniac douses doors
To escape, better jump from the second floor!

This guy’s driven by insanity, pyrotechnic fantasies
How this started is a mystery, he loves it, to behold it
The sheer cost in lives for this type of crime, it never enters his mind
Five gallon tanks are filled, then a stroke of a match
A fireball lights up the night

It's a hot consuming heat, flashing, stretching out its reach
Never stopping ‘til the firemen rush on in

Pyromaniac, maniac douses floors
And he's spraying petrol like never before
Pyromaniac, maniac douses doors
To escape, better jump from the second floor!

(Solo)

Never know where he will strike, accelerant turns to fire
His desire is for something new burning

Pyromaniac, maniac, feels the glow
And he's waiting for his targets to explode
(repeats out)
