Lyrics for Mailbox Arson by Alexisonfire:

Pre-Chorus: George Pettit
Your mail's not safe in this town
Your mail's not safe in this town
Your mail's not safe in this town
Your mail's not safe in this town

Verse 1: George Pettit
I strike a red bird on your face
I pour the kerosene in your mouth
I watch the match fall down your throat

Verse 2: George Pettit
I burn all your precious bowels
Watch the smoke fold for every crack
And breathe in your secret lives

Verse 3: George Pettit
All your bills pay your welfare checks
But I don't think I can stay for long
There's a lot more that's not yet ash

Pre-Chorus: George Pettit
Your mail's not safe in this town
Your mail's not safe in this town
Your mail's not safe in this town
Well I'm taking this town back

Chorus: Dallas Green
I watch the smoke start to rise
One hundred homes
One hundred fires
Everything you own now burns away
This town is no longer mine
It's fucked with me for the last time
How I wish that I could see your face

Verse 4: George Pettit
When the sky is streaked with plumes
Know that it's my signature
Upon this wretched fucking city

Bridge: George Pettit & Dallas Green
Mailbox arson, my sweet revenge
Mailbox arson, my sweet revenge

Strike a match and burn away
Every tie that binds me to this place
Strike a match and burn away
Every tie that binds me to this place
I will strike a match and burn away
Every tie that binds me to this place
Strike a match and burn away
Every tie that binds me to this place

When the smoke clears
You can consider us even

Pre-Chorus: George Pettit
Your mail's not safe in this town
Your mail's not safe in this town
Your mail's not safe in this town
I'm taking this town back

Chorus: Dallas Green
I watch the smoke start to rise
One hundred homes
One hundred fires
Everything you own now burned away
This town is no longer mine
It's fucked with me for the last time
How I wish that I could see your face
