"Phoenix Ignition" as written by Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge, Dustin Michael Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi....
Like a phoenix ignition
Like a crematorium
Like the swelling Volition
From the Barrel of a gun
From the ashes and the amber's
Like a rocket I'll ascend
Like a cry gone up for a fallen friend

I'll ascend

Every day tear down these walls
Till cornerstones remain
Coming one step closer all the time
And although we'll never reach perfection
Always persist to try
Always try

No Regrets
Just rebirth
Move forward
And Ignite
Incandescent
Reinvention
A new Renaissance
A new fire each day

    General CommentIn my lit class we've been reading about the Holocaust for about 2 weeks. This morning as I was getting ready and listening to my Thrice CD, the song kinda reminded be of the book I'd just finished, Night by Elie Wiesel. It recounts this man's experience in concentration camps. This song reminds me of the many references throughout the book about the crematory, the fires, the shootings, and the threat of he and his father rising from the chimneys with the others. And also of his hope of getting out soon and how they were "one step closer all the time" to liberation. It may not be what the song was intended but for some reason it reminded me of that.

    General CommentI think this song is about Christianity "like a phoenix ignition" a phoenix is reborn, and you are begning rebirth "like a creamatorium" death, basically which i think means to die and be reborn in Christ or to be broken and rebuilt "like a swelling vollition from the berrel of a gun" a vollition means an impotant decision, and it is a important desision to become Christian "from the ashes and the embers, like a rocket i'll ascend" you come out of death "embers" and u ascend to live like Christ "No regrets, just rebirth" after you've been reborn in Chist you dont regret it

    General Commenti agree with holkeye but the whole phoenix thing is about an extinct bird.. in the book farenheit 451 it tells the symbolisim of the phoenix

    General Commenti like how he uses the metaphor of the pheonix in this song. in case u didnt know, the pheonix isw a LEGENDARY (not extinct) bird, who every few hundred years(or somethin, im a little rusty on my lengends) would burst into flames and out of the "ashes and the embers" of the last bird, a new one would be born...

    so when he sings this:
    No regrets, just rebirth
    move forward, and ignite.
    Incandescent Reinvention
    a new renaissance
    A NEW FIRE EACH DAY

    hes talking about how every day you have a new chance at life, and you should live everyday to the fullest, like it was the last. just like a pheonix would... lol thats just my opinion, songs have a different meaning for everyone ;)

    General CommentThe song refers to the imperfect nature of man. Like the phoenix, man constantly destroys himself, but never fails to rise out of the ashes to begin anew. Even though perfection will never be ours to know (at least in this life...), we should strive to achieve that state in order to fully live. The speaker infers that underneath all the taint and built-up stain, there lies in us the ability to renew ourselves.

    General Commenti know for a fact Lilvolcom is right. I saw thse guys in concert not to long ago and his wife is from Utah and so amI and when she was here i asked what is this song about. She said the Jews over coming the odds of being the low man on the totem pole. so its what Volcom dude said.

    General Commenta phoenix is a mythical that rose from the ashes of its own destruction to greater glory. this song is about such a recreation of yourself from your own destruction. In the wake of your destruction, you make urself into something greater, everyday tearing down the walls which held you back from becoming perfect, and not to hold yourself back from greatness and with every day living a life and creating a self more perfect
