"Burn To Burn" as written by and Wayne R. (not Static-x)/lacey Wells....
Static in sound
Uncurable
You plant the seed
You fill the need

We give to take
Our eyes
They burn
Sensing the feel
Feeling the real

Burn to burn
The seed we sow
Burn to flow
Into the sorrow
Burn to burn
The seed we sow
Burn to grow
Into the sorrow

I'm staring deep
I'm staring bleak
I search in vain
Your flower glows
Your mother knows

As winter comes
As time passes
We forget the
Static in sound

Static in sound
Delusional
You plant the seed
You fill the need

We give to take
Our hands
They learn
Sensing the feel
Feeling the real

    My InterpretationMy intepretation is that it is about cannabis. Some parts don't fit but some parts do.

    "you plant the seed
    you fill the need " - this parts obvious fill the need for.. weed

    "we give to take" - give life to the plant/earth to take it again at maturity

    "our eyes
    they burn
    sensing the feel
    feeling the real" - sound like he's feeling the effects of smoking it

    "burn to burn
    the seed we sow
    burn to flow
    into the sorrow
    burn to burn
    the seed we sow
    burn to grow
    into the sorrow" - sowing the seeds, burn to get into the flow, burning all this stuff so have to grow some more..? Not sure about the sorrow part?

    "I'm staring deep
    I'm staring bleak
    I search in vain
    Your flower gr(?)ows
    Your mother knows" - maybe he's high looking for his patch and can't find it. The flower (the part of the plant you smoke) grows (could be grows?). Your mother knows - fear of being caught?

    "as winter comes
    as time passes
    we forget the
    static in sound" - the plants die in winter if its cold, so supplies run low?

    "static in sound
    delusional" - delusional... been smoking. Static in sound might refer to the weird stuff you hear when high

    "our hands
    they learn" - learn to use, grow?

    I dunno maybe not...

    General CommentFairly broad interpretation, maybe this does nothing but reveal how cynical I am.

    I think burn is used as two different metaphors in this song. When he says burn to burn, then says a cryptic line about what he burns to burn I think he's using the first burn to mean desire and the second burn to mean destroy. Burn to burn the seeds we sow would be desire to destroy what we create.

    I think this song is about the full spectrum of human emotion/mentality/moral beliefs. I don't have any real strong reference in the song... Here's the way I take a few of the lines in it though:

    "Static in sound" Static is a repetitous chorus of individual sounds or noises. Each individual in the human race is a 'piece' of static in sound. Whether our sound ends up sounding like static or not, I think that's what this metaphor is implying.
    "Uncurable" Its our nature. There is no cure, there is no disease... depending on the piece of static to which you're listening.
    "you plant the seed
    you fill the need
    we give to take" I think everything about human action and desire is based on other humans. We constantly plant seds in each other by providing point of reference. Reference others use to judge every other aspect of their lives. I almost think this line should be 'you feel the need'. In a way act towards people based on how they act. Specifically based on how they act as compared to our point of reference, compared to what we believe is right. Whenever a need is felt an action is taken and a seed is planted.


    "our eyes
    they burn" No matter who you are or what you believe there is a counter. There is another person, or even whole group of people, who believes something you don't. Believes something you think is wrong and vice versa. No matter who you are you will witness your interpretation of filth. It burns your eyes and often compels you to plant a seed (yell at that idiot who offended you, tell that kid its not nice to hit people).
    "sensing the feel
    feeling the real" You sense the difference between your baseline point of reference, your belief and what you're actually seeing. This isn't concious but instead a feeling you get. You don't remember the specific experience that gave you a given belief, but you'll act on it concretely all the same.

    "burn to burn
    the seed we sow" as humans we desire to destroy eachother, because we all differ. Collectively we feed off eachother just like we feed off the world around us.
    "burn to flow
    into the sorrow" Here is where my cynacism comes in and gives me an interpretation for this song: the desire he described using 'burn to burn the seed we sow' takes us all, collectively, to burn. To be destroyed. Our desire to believe and live by what we have seen and experienced (or been told in some's cases) differentiates us. Everything we are is so heavily influenced by those around us yet this drives us to differ ourselves and divide. Sorrow represents the lack of unity.
    "burn to burn
    the seed we sow
    burn to grow
    into the sorrow" Grow into the sorrow makes me certain of the loopy paragraph above. We grow into a begrudging love and respect of eachother and our differences. Kids fight the growing up process so much in so many places but get awful comfy once they're finished.

    "I'm staring deep
    I'm staring bleak
    I search in vain" Looking for that reason.
    "Your flower glows
    Your mother knows" Don't feel strong about this but to me this line illustrates the connected nature of humans. Your flower is your personality or even more basic your self, anything you are. The person who raised you knows you, they made you. The people in your life made you. Maybe better to say you made yourself on the people in your life. You learned how to act and how to behave by the positive or negative feed back you gathered from those around you. This loops back on static in sound, the individual - the whole.

    "as winter comes
    as time passes
    we forget the
    static in sound" As people age they become more and more set in their ways. They become more specific to the long road they themselves have travelled and more closed off to the potential roads that have been travelled by those around them. You slowly stop branching from those around you and become your own tree, we forget all the individuals. Winter is death by the way.

    "static in sound
    delusional
    you plant the seed
    you fill the need" When saying 'static in sound' here after the bit about us becoming more closed off individuals makes me feel like he's stating this specifically about the individual now. Before he was using 'static in sound' to give you the scope of humanity. Now he's using it to say you're a piece of static at this point. You're no longer viewed as some of the sound.

    "we give to take
    our hands
    they learn
    sensing the feel
    feeling the real" I'd feel more confident in my interpretation if these few lines where at the beginning of the song. 'Our hands they learn' I think supports my whole 'you grow off those in your life' concept. With the idea of learning close by 'sensing the feel feeling the real' makes me think he's now stating what has happened to you, now here at winter's edge. You sensed the feel (the feeling you got from the reactions of others to you) and you felt out the real, determined what felt right and wrong to make up your self.

    Whew. That was long winded and probably about 9 years too late.
