lyrics

Do you remember when
bricks shattering glass
was just a laugh to us?

A swirling haze I was appalled
I was amazed
by our recklessness

And I thought that I could run,
wherever you may walk
But little, did I know
Bout where you'd want to go

The kids all want to play with fire
cause their only desire is to burn
But every candle, will eventually burn down

Just strip away your armor
and the crimson veil
and what you'll find

is that fighting every war abroad
has never saved a man
from what awaits back home

And I thought that I could run,
wherever you may walk
But little, did I know
Bout where you'd want to go

The kids all want to play with fire
cause their only desire is to burn
But every candle, will eventually wear down

Kids all wanna play with fire
cause the raging blaze and the burning flame
is everything they know
searching for enlightenment
they're wasting every precious breath
for the faintest glow

The kids all want to play with fire
cause their only desire is to burn
But slowly they turn houses into pyres
