There's a lightning storm each and every night
Crashing inside you like motorbikes
We tose and turn, sleep so loud
Grind the teeth in our empty mouths
Our empty

There's a forrest fire burning bright
Spreading quickly towards our last rights
Nowhere to run, pointless to hide
Just lay there and scream, pretending to try
Pretending

Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
Everyone learns faster on fire
Things took a turn, lost all desire
You live and you burn
You live and you burn

This impending doom is left deep inside
And it's haunting you each and every night
Like starving wolves, drowning sheep
We close our eyes, pretending to sleep
Descending

Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
Everyone learns faster on fire
Things took a turn, lost all desire
You live and you burn
You live and...

Like hell, we are anxiously waiting
Like hell burning silently strong
Somehow we fell down by the wayside
And somehow this hell is home

As we burn, pretending to fight it
Everyone learns faster on fire
Things took a turn, lost all desire
You live and you burn
You live and
Like hell, we are anxiously waiting
Like hell burning silently strong
Somehow we fell down by the wayside
And somehow this hell is home
Right now, this hell is my home

    General CommentThe Anton LeVay thing makes sense.

    Definetly about people's life-long inner struggle with wanting to do whatever makes them feel alive and good but trying to fight against the urge because it's deemed immoral or wrong.

    Satanists are hedonists, they just give in.

    General CommentGreat song, but I just think the chorus is too catchy, If it's on the radio I think it will blow up, they will be the next MCR. Graet band gone pop. I think Mercy Me is the best song, anyone get the lyrics to that?

    General CommentYeah, I'd be really surprised if this isn't a single at some point. That chorus was built for radio.

    General CommentThe title "Burn" makes more sense, seeing as they say it a bunch of times. It was labeled wrong when I got the CD too

    General CommentReally articulate response in that last comment...Anyway, "Burn" would make a hell of a lot more sense, yeah. Especially with the similarity to "Bleeder" and I don't see why they as a band wouldn't be conscious of that.

    General Comment"bleed" was how the song was labelled in the copy of the album i received.

    "burn" certainly makes more sense though.
