It's heating up.
Look around as smoke consumes the room.
People dancing in the flames;
dying for a scenery change.
There must be something in this drink that's causing me to think this way.
I'm hopelessly hoping we'll make it home okay.

If you're here right now you're dancing in the fire
(And nobody's moving to douse the flames)
Don't you think it's strange?
It seems like we're moving through the pain of being ablaze.
Doesn't this raise any doubts?
Skeptic running through our minds into our mouth
Will someone be our fire-fighting baby?
Apprehension is driving me crazy.

Hey, Mr. DJ,
why don't you play my favorite tune.
I've been thinking you've been holding out; it's coming soon
(at least we hope it is).
You're becoming reckless.
I hope you get this message.
I think it's time to set to the mood.
Let's put an end to this fire, it's been burning from inside out.
We reserve our doubts and question every single things that pours from your mouth.
