Rage, I'm on fire, I'm on fire on the inside.
Flames, they're burning through me,
They're burning everything in front of me.
Pain, I can't tolerate, I won't tolerate it anymore.
Rage, I'm on fire, I'm on fire on the inside.

It's been filling me up this way,
Till there's room for nothing.
I turn a well-worn shade of grey
Like the ashes I kneel in.
There's only me and the end -
We stand like the blind with outstretched hands,
As we stumble to embrace -
What's coming right for you.

Rage, I'm on fire, I'm on fire on the inside.
Flames, they're burning through me,
They're burning everything in front of me.
Pain, I can't tolerate, I won't tolerate it anymore.
Rage, I'm on fire, I'm on fire on the inside.

I've got enough flame strapped to me,
That it won't stop for no one.
Dealing all the hurt you ever wanted to see,
And none of the shame when it's done.
All this joy - it burns to dust in my hands.
My family's ashes pose these simple demands.
But my ears can't hear the truth
Cause they're on fire.
And my lips won't crack a smile,
Cause they're still screaming.

Won't tolerate feeling this way.
I've been burned down to nothing.
I've pushed my life to light up this void,
And finally kicked myself in.
There's no violence I can't rationalize,
No action worth discounting.
Now I'm burning a path ten miles wide,
And this heat inside still grows.

Rage. I'm on fire, I'm on fire on the inside.
Flames, they're burning through me
They're burning everything in front of me.
Pain, I can't tolerate, I won't tolerate it anymore.
Rage, I'm on fire, I'm on fire on the inside.

I've been living in red for so long now,
I'm a jaded no one.
Plotting revenge against the rights they've wronged
And dragged down the paths that they run.
As time trades my life away,
I know inside I'll never see the day
That they're suffering.
That they're suffering the truth.
I just can't live in a world so entrenched in denial.
