"The Fire Still Burns" as written by and Daniel Dee Snider....
You thought it was gone
But the fire goes on
And I thought you knew me
I told you before
'Til I settle the score
That I'll never run free
I have enough pain and anger in my brain
To last many lifetimes
Yet still it grows, and the more that it shows
I won't have peace of mind

The fire, the fire still burns

I have a dream
And as strange as it seems
There's no embers glowing
The fire's gone out and there's no need to shout
'Cause no anger's showing
But it's not true, nothing I ever do
Seems to ease my fury
Get out of my way
I'm the hangman today
And the judge and jury

The fire, the fire still burns

    General CommentI think it's about how this person has tried to lock away his anger and frustrations from the world so that they would not get in the way of living a normal life and has attempted to make peace within himself, but shit keeps hitting him in the face and he can't ignore it any longer. His breaking point has come and it's time for revenge. He will get back at anyone and everyone who has or will cause him agony.
