I can see the fire inside heating the living room in no one direction,
but sprawling out all over the floor,
And as the smoke forms a line up to the sun it carves a fold in everyone,
and the notable promise that i can recall is that i could have been there with you,

we'd be dancing in the fire

a tackle with a familiar response was my call to burn inside and alone.
smoke rises up to the sun and carves a fold in everyone dancing in the fire.

everyone dancing in the fire

i regret the choice that i made;
that you're not a fire so i will not dance in you.

    General CommentThe part about "tackle with a familiar response" could be something like lust for another that comes easy and when he is presented with that road, his response is the same, and therefore he relinquishes any chance to dance in the fire with that person who is full of life. Now he is left "to burn inside" (anger, remorse).

    General CommentAlso the person he has the "familiar choice" is also the one he states "regret the choice that i made;
    that you're not a fire so i will not dance in you."
    That person is can not give them the feeling or fulfillment that he realizes exist, that person is unsatisfying.

    General CommentSeems to me this song is about a guy who may/may not have been in love with someone, he had an opportunity to take it further (ie 'dance in the fire' = make love) but decided not to, he 'could have been there' but is not. Looking back now, he regrets this decision ('i regret the choice that I made') to spurn this would-be lover, maybe because she wasn't interesting enough, she wasn't 'firey' enough, or he wasn't attracted to her (didn't ignite the fires of passion perhaps?). Instead he 'burns inside and alone', he has nobody and also likely has no sex. In short, he longs for a relationship that had an opportunity to happen, but didn't happen because of a choice made by him, probably because of initial disinterest in the lover.
