Where do you turn when everything is burned
Down to the ground?

With the knife against your throat
Will you take control,
or will you choke?

You'll change your perception
of love and affection
Just to take one more step
in the wrong direction
You'll change your deception
of love and affection
Just to take one more step
in the wrong direction

Where do you turn when everything is burned
down to the ground
Ashes to ashes
Where do you turn when everything is burned
down to the ground
Gone forever.

If only you believed we belong...
Why did you turn away
Just to watch it burn?
You tried so hard just to let me know
You don't care anymore
So I'm gone,
Ashes to ashes.

    Song MeaningIt shows the sense of distrust that can destroy a relationship. "you'll change your deception of love and affection." Its a sinister and dark view of trying to save a relationship while losing trust for the other person as well. It also holds a sense of heartfelt regret in the line "gone forever." It gives you the thought that they had been together for a long time and he either regrets the time he wasted that is gone forever, or he is saddened that his lover is gone forever.
