lyrics

Children play with matches, start a fire
Children play with matches, start a fire
Don't ever do what you're told
The old are just old
Children play with matches, start a fire

Children play with fire, tend a blaze
Children play with fire, tend a blaze
You know where he keeps his drinks
And lots of poisons under the sink
Children play with fire, tend a blaze

Well the world is dry and brittle and dead
It'll go up in a flash
If we mix it all together, oh what a colorful blast
Only shout when spoken to
Curse your way through church and school
And mess around with father's power tools
(He'll never use)

Children play beyond the "Keep Out" signs
Children play beyond the "Keep Out" signs
And if the owners send you home
It's bottles, rocks, and stones
Children play beyond the "Keep Out" signs

Children lead us to the lake of fire
Children lead us to the lake of fire
And as we drive down into the flames
Maybe I'll let you hold the reigns
Children lead us to the lake of fire

Children play with matches, start a fire
Children play with matches, start a fire
Just a little gasoline
And watch the people scream
Oh, children play with matches
Start a fire

Mischief Brew Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Emerging from the undead ashes of PA punk troupe The Orphans, Mischief Brew started with a scratchy demo tape in 2000 and has since spread the good word of anarchy, hilarity, and rebellion across state lines and even the Atlantic Ocean a few times. We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
