"Torn" as written by and David/donegan Draiman....
I learned how to fall today, didn't think it would kill you
To settle the debt I thought never would be paid
Found out I was wrong today, too weak to continue
One final defense to fall
Still unbroken

Now I am torn, thought it was over this time
And we know there's still a fire inside
And we know, and we know
We're gonna let it burn
Let it burn
Till the image fades away

Knew there was a price to pay, didn't think it would thrill you
To witness the fallen one shattered and ashamed
No I'm not the only one yearning to fulfill you
Unwilling to risk it all
Still uncertain

Now I am torn, thought it was over this time
And we know there's still a fire inside
And we know, and we know
We're gonna let it burn
Let it burn
Till the image fades away

Yeah!

Now I am torn, thought it was over this time
And we know there's still a fire inside
And we know, and we know

That I am torn (Torn)
Thought it was over this time
And we know (know)
There's still a fire inside
And we know, and we know
We're gonna let it burn
Let it burn
Till the image fades away

    General CommentIt sounds like someone that he cared about hurt him and hes horrified by their aparent satisfaction with his pain, it also sounds like there was a third party involved, almost like another guy competing for the same girl. also i think he feels torn inside between his feelings for the person and his rationality saying that they dont care for him and the indecision is paralyzing so hes just going to let the feeling bleed him untill it fades.

    General CommentIt sounds like he's dealing with someone that he loves and respects a great deal but who shows him disdain in return, someone that takes joy in feeding off of the energy of others. He doesn't want to fight this person, he doesn't want to have to defend himself from this person, but circumstances have made it necessary. He's too conflicted to simply turn away or retaliate so he focuses on sustaining the fire within him as long as he can (alongside the others who are being exploited).

    General CommentI believe the lyrics are as follows:

    I learned how to fall today
    Didn’t think it would kill you
    To settle the debt I thought
    Never would be paid
    Found out I was wrong today
    To weak to continue
    One final defence to fall
    Still unbroken

    Now I am torn
    Thought it was
    Over this time
    And we know
    There’s still a fire inside
    And we know
    And we know
    We're gonna let it burn
    Let it burn
    Til the image fades away

    Knew there was a price to pay
    Didn’t think it would thrill you
    To witness the fallen one
    Shattered and ashamed
    No I’m not the only one
    Yearning to fulfill you
    One willing to risk it all
    Still uncertain

    Now I am torn
    Thought it was
    Over this time
    And we know
    There’s still a fire inside
    And we know
    And we know
    We're gonna let it burn
    Let it burn
    Til the image fades away

    Yeah!

    Now I am torn
    Though it was
    Over this time
    And we know
    There’s still a fire inside
    And we know
    And we know

    That I am torn
    Though it was
    Over this time
    And we know
    There’s still a fire inside
    And we know
    And we know
    We're gonna let it burn
    Let it burn
    Til the image fades away

    I must say, this is a great song. Theres a lot of meaning behind it and it is beautifully put together.

    General CommentI think it's about having intense feelings for someone, could be a friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, whatever. You think and hope the feelings are gone because of all the shit and the pain they've put you through. This person might not necessarily enjoy the pain they inflict upon you, maybe they're just oblivious to it, but regardless it's still painful. So you hope and pretend these unrequited emotions are gone, but something happens that makes you realize those feelings have not left you, which only increases your pain...

    General CommentI think this song kinda works well with the relationship I have with a friend. We both developed really strong feelings for eachother but entered the dreaded 'Friend Zone' where she insists we be "just friends". Now there is this "fire inside" and we are going to "let it burn till the image fades away". And "I'm not the only one, yearning to fulfill you, one willing to risk it all..." She has found someone else.

    Its what the song means to me anyways. The whole song doesn't fit for it but I think its in the right direction.
