One day you'll learn
When you get burnt,
By then it will be too late for ya,
Be too late for ya
When the fire spreads and burns, don't you know?

He's just a kid, off the estate
They call him 'Little Jake'
Today he tried to buy weed with his little mate
Up in the bits, but he's just a kid
So he was open to manipulation
He had to undergo initiation
And when some older boys saw the situation
They took the piss, now look at this
little yout' beating up his only friend
The only one that weren't pretend
And even gave him the money for the peng
From mice to men, and then to rats
But only a snake behaves like that
But the gang don't care if he falls through the gaps
They're just happy that he falled for the trap

Playing with fire,
It doesn't burn
First time your hand
Warm to the flame
Playing with fire
Bitter an sweet
Oh-no
Scorching skin now
Hell on it's way
Playing with fire
Fire, fire, fire, fire
Playing with fire
One day you'll learn
When you get burned
By then it will be too late for ya
Too late for ya
When the fire spreads and burns
Don't you know
Playing with fire

He's just a kid, but he feels like the man today
He joined a gang today
Been at a house party around the way
Doing illegal shit, but he's just a kid
Still he's in luck today
He got a fuck today
Yeah he bust his very first nut today
In some stupid bitch
Today's moving quick
So quick, if you wear the wrong shoes you'll slip
Better keep up wi' the tempo, wi' the clique
Cause what they on's messed up bruv
And now that he's rollin wi' these vexed up thugs
What's next up bruv?
Course he's gonna make it his only mission
To better his position
In this little gang it's a competition
To the little man what a disposition
Holier than thou, he was born a Christian
All he worships now is a knive and idolism
Wise men'll tell you with age comes wisdom
And you can't be saved by religion unless you have faith
So it makes no difference to the youths that are raised in the system
Who don't have age on the side
Or any positive role models in their lives that provide insight
So he ain't gonna listen
As for Jake, he's already made his decision
And now he's just another poster boy
For David Cameron's 'Broken Britain'

Playing with fire, it doesn't burn
First time, your hand,
Warm to the flame

Playing with fire
Bitter an sweet
Oh-no
Scorching skin now
Hell on it's way
Playing with fire
Fire, fire, fire, fire
Playing with fire
One day you'll learn
When yo get burned
By then it'll be too late for ya
Too late for ya
When the fire spreads and burns
Don't you know
Playing with fire
