Spontaneous human combustion (SHC) is the alleged process of a human body catching fire as a result of heat generated by internal chemical or nuclear action. While no one has ever witnessed SHC, several deaths involving fire have been attributed to SHC by investigators and storytellers.

Taken from here.

Are there possibilities that the person next to you could just go ablaze in a split second and cremated into ashes, blown away to distant lands by the storms of early summer? Sitting on my couch last summer, in that wave of heat in Malaysia, watching the National Geographic channel on the aforementioned topic, it perplexed me as to how there could be such phenomenon, a myth which is now hotly debated among scientists, some trying to approve it as a valid scientific theory, while skeptic scientists are eager to debunk SHC with hopes of making it a mere reference in some pulp fiction publication.

And Brandon Boyd of Incubus sings on 'Pardon Me' : -

A decade ago, I never thought I would be,
at twenty three, on the verge of spontaneous combustion. Woe-Is-me.
I need you to hear, I need you to see that I have had all I can take and
exploding seems like a definite possibility to me.
So pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of the world and it's people's mindless games.

It may be illogical, but the song deals with the calamitous surroundings and persistent disastrous state of the world as a possible cause of SHC.

Indeed, one of these days i could be blown out of proportions due to the evils of the world.

There is a heightened state of hypocrisy. Devils masking as angels. The air thickened with the stench of greed and the world bloated with sexual harassments and rape. Minds poisoned by jealousy, fuelled by anger and emotional outbursts. The rule of megalomaniacs, thirsty for a piece of political power.

Nobody cries of 'emergency state'.

Sex and drugs are the new Gods. Wealth is the new creed. Entertainment is the new religion. The regression of a generation. This atheistic society, with an allergy to God.

Nobody cries of 'de-civilisation'.

By 2020, depression will be prevelant in the society. High incidence which may overtake myocardial infarction on the top spot. Will then, only, people will cry for God. For help.

Will you then ask for the parachute after the drop from the sky?

Regardless of religion, it's the nature of human beings. It's in the genes. We come back searching for Allah. For Jesus, Krishna, Yahweh or whoever you believe in. But i'm a Muslim, and i would be scrambling back for the one and only God, Allah.

Now religion is minimized to the function of an airbag. In certain cases, in accidents, in distress and chaos, then only would people certify religion in their lives.

And i pray, and i ask, and i beg, "Don't stray me off the path".

And when harm touches you upon the sea, those that you call upon vanish from you except Him (Allah Alone). But when He brings you safe to land, you turn away (from Him). And man is ever ungrateful .
