"Let the Bridges Burn" as written by and Mike A./dutkiewicz D'antonio....
We have come too far
To let our fulfillment fall away
I must refuse to renounce my integrity

We stand in defiance
To their excess
Let the grief that they have inflicted serve as a call to arms

Are you ready?
Are you willing?
To be the catalyst
We can no longer be indifferent
Restore this tired world

For misery
We have turned away
Ignite the past
Let the bridges burn

My eyes watch the unholy be left in the distance
The division of our souls from our blasphemous tongues
This is our fulfillment

For misery
We have turned away
Ignite the past
Let the bridges burn
From sorrow
We have turned away
To the past
Let the bridges burn

I have bled for the truth
There is no surrender
Move forward, go make yourself
Destroy all lies

From ashes to ashes
From dust to dust
From ashes to ashes
From dust to dust

For misery
We have turned away
Ignite the past
Let the bridges burn
Let the bridges burn
Let the bridges burn

    General CommentI think that the song meanings a bit of both of your comments. The song encourages people to stand up to a world that will try to hold us down. And more importantely, stand true.

    "We can no longer be indifferent.
    Restore this dying world.
    From misery we have turned away, ignite the past, let the bridges burn." - we can no longer be indifferent about this world, its hurting, and its up to all of us to restore what this world is suppose to be. Let the past go, its full of misery, but we cant let that tie us down. Let those bridges that tie us to a painful past burn, and also lets the bridges between us burn. Because even though we claim ourselves to be a world united, we are all kept apart by racism and violence. Burn the sorry excuses and half ass bridges that supposedly tie us all together so that we may truly become one as a people.

    General CommentTo me this song is about letting go of the past("burning bridges") and not fear because of the past, but let it be a reason to move on.

    General CommentI feel as if this song talks about doing something instead of just sitting around and watching wrong be done, even if it means you're going to be pushed down and struggling for the truth or even if you have to leave your life behind by dying or "burning the bridges" of those you love.

    General CommentI can relate the lyrics of this song to the current politics of the United States, I feel with the democrats gaining ever more control, and those in power of our current administration, are forcing it to become a socialist state. I do not doubt that in trying to do so a revolution will spark, fueled by those left with common sense, their own opinions, and an education. People need to fight for their rights, and what they believe in, now more than ever.
