"Burn" as written by and Bruce Cockburn....
Slowly peel this crust that is forming
Over my skin
To protect me from my
Disapproving mind
Which carries on
Exploiting my weakness

Ashes falling surrounding me
I don't care

Mask this burning

And my ever searching eye
Shuns its finds

And I burn

    Song MeaningBeautiful song, people really lack taste if they don't have anything to say about Shikhee's songs.

    This line pretty much sums up the meaning:

    "And my ever searching eyes
    shuns its finds"

    Like basic human needs, wheter it's love or happiness.
    This woman feels lost and burns without them.
