"Burn" as written by Lori Mckenna, Jana Kramer, Hillary Lee Lindsey and Liz Rose....
(rescue me) from this mistake I'm in
Who knows the path I'll land on
(i must be dreamin') in the end nothing but solitary moments
(comin' down on me)

Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
(wash it away, release me)

(never free) I don't know what I want but I know
(i don't want this) a sleep of content I'm here
Again and always (intent on believin')

Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be

Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be
(wash it away â?? release me)

(i can't take this anymore )

I lied to myself, remembering the things said
Things you said to me, no answer for help
Empty promises were all I heard, never meant to be
Destroy me, control me, don't hold me, release me from your hands
Give me back the life you took andâ?¦

Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be
Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be

I often wonder how it came to this again
I often wonder why it had to end
I often wonder how it came to this again
I often wonder why it had to end
Forgive you just the same
I often wonder how it came to this again
Never meant to be
I often wonder why it had to end
Forgive you all the same
I often wonder how it came to this again
Never meant to be
I often wonder why it had to end
Because of what you took from me

    General CommentProgressive is a very beautiful style of music with multiple shifts in tempo, and arrangements (building on riffs etc). It's like multiple songs (like 4 or 5) in one kickass package. I doubt this a true "opus" (or masterpiece), as the length isn't that great. :P You want an opus? Dream Theater's Octavarium is a great way to start..

    General CommentI agree in full with Aaron. This is my favorite song on the album. I really like how they just went all out on this song and did it right. It started out nicely, and then went into a sort of self-inflicted rage. I thought the electronic drum beats were pretty creative and well timed, and Morgan did a perfect emulation of that exact riff. The tribal/natural interlude was a great way to just calm things down and just think about the real meaning of the song, and it lets the listener understand and relate to that one line even better..."I often wonder how it came to this again."

    I think this album was great, I'd give it a 4/5.
    I am a diehard Sevendust fan, and I'd say it is another excellent delivery from these boys, but I still love the classics like the first three. I do not agree with All Music Guides 2/5 star rating, I read the review multiple times, and it is just another biased pushoff by the narrow-minded mainstream pundit, Stephen Thomas Erlewine. He is nothing than a pop culture puppet.

    This album is excellent, and deserves a four star rating. This is Sevendust we are talking about here.

    Have we really ever heard anything less than such from them?

    I didn't think so either.

    General CommentI think this song is about being hurt deeply, maybe even rape... "I pray the day will come when you will see what you took from me", taken of one's innocence

    General CommentAn prog. opus is a progressive opus or something (and an opus is basically a musical composition). AMG is AllMusicGuide... a music review site =P I can't believe they gave Alpha 2/5 stars. It can't be that bad can it? We'll see.
