"Burn the Pages" as written by and Gregory Kurstin Sia Furler....
You're dark grey like a storm cloud
Swelling up with rage that is desperate to be let out
And I know it's a heavy load carrying those tears around
Carrying those fears around, worry makes the world go round

You're twisted up like a slipknot
Tied by a juicehead who just took his t-shot, and I know
There's a hungry dog tugging at your frayed ends
But he's just playing with you, he just wants to be your friend

So don't worry, don't worry I'm here by your side
By your side, by your side
We're letting go tonight!

Yesterday is gone and you will be OK
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages, let 'em cook oh
Yesterday is dead and gone and so today
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages, let 'em cook

Eyes stinging from the black smoke, new hope, loose rope
Risen from the undertow, all is well
We welcome the cry, of the dark night sky
Swallow me peacefully, follow my heart back inside

So don't worry, don't worry I'm here by your side
By your side, by your side
We're letting go tonight!

Yesterday is gone and you will be OK
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages, let 'em cook oh
Yesterday is dead and gone and so today
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages, let 'em cook

Don't worry, don't worry I'm here by your side
By your side, by your side
We're letting go tonight!

Yesterday is gone and you will be OK
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages, let 'em cook oh
Yesterday is dead and gone and so today
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages, let 'em cook

    Song MeaningI think this song expresses looking back at the past and how people regret the decisions they made but at the end of the day dwelling on the past will only make you depressed and living in the present is what makes life worth living.
    The song is about how whatever has happened to before only makes you stronger and even if you are hurting right now, "place your past into a book, burn the pages, let em cook" - meaning, forget what happened because it already happened - keep living, you're going to be alright.
