[Intro:]
"Never play with matches, lighters, or candles
You can start a fire by accident
And that fire can very easily get out of control
Many times I've had to go to a house
Fire that was started by a child playing with matches"

[Verse 1: Mav]

Imagine a kid with a passion for playing with matches
When angered, but too advanced to throw public tantrums in panic
Accepted life was a challenge
Never been handed shit, so a nigga managed
And took advantage of these random circumstances
Then hostilely held them hostage for massive ransom
On candid camera until all my questions were answered
Poet or rapper? Understand my stanzas something like Langston's
Tactics accented in tandem with tranquil tantrics
Playing hangman off the tower of babble
Get the message unless you dyslexic
Universally translated this body of language

Fact is, this planets cancerous
Humanity's a rampant disease
That can't be easily fixed
Til' people at ease deceased, or cease to exist
If niggas gassin' I'm tossin' matches, if you catch my drift
I'll set the world on fire with a paper matchbook in my fist
Nigga, Set it all on fire
With a matchbook in my fist

[Bridge: Excerpt from the movie Dark Knight]
"They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with
Some men just want to watch the world burn"

[Verse 2: Mav]
Imagine a teen with a knack for attracting bad habits
The family antagonist in anguish
Ignoring the age old adage
Pour over a new chapter in that book of matches
An adolescent caught in the magnet of fatal attraction
From the action of burning handfuls of rancid cabbage
Only my brain matter though, my attention span in fragments
Go off on tangent, and hold it responsible for its actions
Used to smoke a bowl and puzzle tangrams on my mattress for laughs man
In my fathers absence, God Damnit

Impossible to acknowledge this lifestyle I took for granted
What goods a mansion if your family's Manson?
What goods your family
If they're saying you're a bastard?
Rather burn out than catch a fade
So my remains cremated to ashes
Another accidental antic
Of a manic maverick

[Outro:]
