A crumpled future in your fist The killing streak ascends sun kissed And the fire starter from within Pokes out from fever blistered grin King Salamander that's his name A desert maker that's his aim The benign cremator, branding iron in his hand Eager and willing to torch the land All fire and brimstone, this Jack-O-Lantern He likes to watch the buildings burn His ardor smoulders, phosphorous flies He radiates with urgency, hypnotize Stoke the furnace, feed his need, this thirst for fire is all he seeks He's the blazing rubber making tracks, the blue touch paper at your back All fire and brimstone, this Salamander King He basks while all around him burns Giddy up, burn-up, not fade away These words ignite and pave his way Giddy up, burn-up, stoke it up and turn it up Sings these words in fervid frame All fire and brimstone, this Jack-O-Lantern He likes to watch the pyres burn Jack be nimble, Jack be quick Jack jump over the candlestick Jack be nimble, Jack be quick Jack jump over the candlestick
