"Passion" as written by Billie Ray Martin, Carlo Andrea Raggi, Riccardo Testoni, Ciro Pagano and Stefano Mazzavillani....
Every word that falls from my lips falls on deaf ears and I suffocate
Now righteousness cast aside thrown to the ground
I close my eyes and I see you there
See you there

But my eyes deceive me
Every other sense says I'm alone
Now waking hours melt to sleepiness nights
And all fear has left me
If I could learn from my past
I'd possess the strength to walk away
Let your sweet taste fall from my lips
But it resonates

And now I hold this so dear
To let it fade would tear me apart
If I now left this all behind
Simply turned and walked away
Would the dawns light fall upon my face
To end this tragedy
Still deep in the long black
Behind the shimmering blue
I'd swear that I have seen
The last soul that I care to

So this is passion and it crawls upon my skin
And it sinks into my bones and I am whole again

And I feel it filling me
And I pray it will never end
Now it burns within my veins
And I am writhing in ecstasy

    General Comment"Every word that falls from my lips falls on deaf ears and I suffocate
    Now righteousness cast aside, thrown to the ground"

    I think that means look at what has happened to this world and how my words do nothing

    "Now waking hours melt to sleepless nights and all fear has left me"

    Now all fear has left

    "I'd possess the strength to turn away, let your sweet taste fall from my lips
    But it resonates"

    Now my message has been heard

    "If I now left this all behind, simply turned and walked away
    Would the dawns light fall upon my face to end this tragedy?
    Still deep in the long black, behind the shimmering blue
    I'd swear that I have seen the last soul that I care to"

    If I left the world what would happen? Would the world change from the souls not hearing me.

    "So this is passion and it crawls upon my skin
    And it sinks into my bones and I am whole again"

    If I didn't do what I do, i would be lost and I would have no meaning

    "And I feel it filling me and I pray it will never end
    Now it burns with fire in my veins
    And I am writing in ecstasy"

    I don't know what i have done and it wont help, but this is my passion and I wouldn't stop for anything.

    When he says "writing in ecstasy" I think he means i write what i see that is the world.


    I think this song is about Phil's (vocalist) love of music, its his passion and he wouldn't stop for the world. This doesn't surprise me because I was attracted to this band because I got a strange sence of passion from this band.

    LOVE THIS SONG, GUITARS ESPECIALLY!

    General Commentthis tune is amazing, it is about his passion for something and someone that is holding him back, if he lets this thing/person go he will die inside but if he carries on holding onto his passion it could kill him

    General CommentI think this is about the passion for music, more specifically the passion in metal and his love for it.

    General CommentI think its about realizing, after a life of feeling so alone and like nothing, that you are have found someone that completes you. And it's about the need for them, the fear of losing them

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "writhing in ecstasy" not "writing". Awesome song though.
