ABOUT THIS TRACK: Fire fighters somehow seem to be beyond suspicion when their ethics are questioned. This song is about the odd-one-out; the pyromaniac fire fighter that took the job just to show-off and be a hero.


I’m late for work
That wouldn’t be too bad
if I wasn’t a fire fighter

Everyone goes beserk
Now that wouldn’t be too bad
if this fire wasn’t getting brighter

Who puts the fire out?
(get the hose, and aim for the flame)

That red axe is oversized
now every door - or what’s behind -
will be chopped into a thousand pieces

if the kid is carbonized
then I leave him be and take care of me
before the temp increases



from This Time it's Different, released January 1, 2016
