The Lyrics

"In Flames" is another way of saying angry. I decided to write a parody that shows how I USED to be about 15 years ago, and that explains my "Red Ant" name a bit more than my current bio does. I've changed quite a bit since then.
I'm only happy when in flames
I'm really happy when I'm conflagrated
You know the fuse has been initiated
I'm only happy when in flames..

I love to listen to your pissing match..
I leave destruction when you use a catch
I'm only happy when in flames...

Pour... your energy down
All.. your energy on-to me
Neg-ativity now
Pour.. your misery down in me

I'm only happy when in flames
I feel good when I can right your wrongs
It's my suspicion you knew all a-long
I'm only happy when in flames...

[instrumental]

I bring a light to the dark
Think arguments will only go so far?
It really doesn't matter who you are
I'm only happy when in flames...

You'll get the message by the time I'm through
That's if there's anything left of you
I'm only happy when in flames...

Pour your energy down
(All your energy now)
Neg-ativity down in me
(Pour your misery down)
Put your sympathy down
(All you sympathy down)
More adrenaline flows from me
(More adrenaline)
Boy your pissin me off
(Boy your totally wrong)
Make an enemy out of me
(Made an enemy now)
No more courtesies now
(No more)

You will see I'm gasoline,
So handle with some care

I'm only happy when in flames
The only way that you will find protection
Is to head off in a new direction
I'm only happy when in flames

(Pour your energy down in me)
I'm only happy when in flames
(Put your sympathy down its weak)
I'm only happy when in flames
(Neg-ativity down in me)
I'm only happy when in flames
(Made an enemy out of me)
I'm only happy when in flames

Pour your energy down in me
Neg-ativity down in me
Put your sympathy down its weak
Made an enemy out of me
I'm always happy in the flames
Pour your energy down in me
Pour your energy down in me
All your energy down in me

First I was gonna say/write that I think I'll enjoy it if we've ignited a Amirigh Garbage revivial here, then it struck me that it might be interpreted as a comment on you linking to my parody of this OS! :-)
>BR>Naah, don't worry, I saw that you even stated it to be funnier, though I aimed for funny and you seem to aim for autobiographical here so there's comparison anyway. I'll take it up to a 4 for funny anyway, even though your not going for that here, so here's a maxed 545.

don't know the OS but it was an interesting read...5s
Billy Boyd - November 18, 2005 - Report this comment
Good parody to a good song and something I definately relate with. And I must say that this reads more like an original than a parody, which is highly impressive. All 5's.
Adagio - November 18, 2005 - Report this comment
I didn't see the mp3, but saw the 5's you got for pacing and then just enjoyed the rest. All I can say is.....that was also me a few years back, so I recognize every little maneuver (cuz I used them too). So 5's...I really enjoyed this. :)
