A type of impulse control disorder, pyromania is an impulse to deliberately start fires to relieve tension and typically includes feelings of gratification or relief afterward.

Pyromania is distinct from arson, and pyromaniacs are also distinct from those who start fires because of psychosis, for personal, monetary or political gain, or for acts of revenge.

Pyromaniacs start fires to induce euphoria.

Euphoria is medically recognized as a mental-emotional state defined as a sense of great (usually exaggerated) elation and well-being.

Never give him an even break
Gettin' caught is the chance you take
It could be your last mistake
You could be so helpless
As a bird with a broken wing
Like a sheep in a lion's den
Gonna fall but you won't know when...

Can you feel it in the air
There's danger in the air, danger
Such a strange emotion
