lyrics

matchmaker
you’re setting us all on fire

“Man up,” he says,
“Show us your face!
Shove on in. Place a bet.
We’re spinning a new kind of roulette!
Shake a hand, breathe, you’re dead.”

matchmaker
you’re setting us all on fire

stomping
the wrestling ring
frothing crowd
chanting “king”
flash bombs
billowing shock
the exit doors are chained and locked

something wicked this way comes

[plucks it from the box
sparks it on the side]

slopping kerosene on everyone

[flings a careless whirling flame
unto the teeming fuel and tinder]

crows our villain now unmasked

[waving in the blaze
no one gets away]

“this is fine!”

matchmaker
you’re setting us all on fire
