"Point of No Return" as written by and Rob Hawkins Dustin Paul Bates....
There's a memory of how we used to be
That I can see through the flames
I am hypnotized as I fantasize
Forgetting lies and pain
But I can't go back

The ashes call my name

Pouring the fuel, fanning the flames
Breaking the habit and melting the chains
Embracing the fear, chasing the fight
The glow of the fire will light up the night
The bridges are burning, the heat's on my face
Making the past an unreachable place
Pouring the fuel, fanning the flames
I know, this is the point of no return

It's uncontrollable
Such a beautiful desire
There's something sinister about the way it hurts
When I watch it burn
Because I can't go back

The ashes call my name

Pouring the fuel, fanning the flames
Breaking the habit and melting the chains
Embracing the fear, chasing the fight
The glow of the fire will light up the night
The bridges are burning, the heat's on my face
Making the past an unreachable place
Pouring the fuel, fanning the flames
I know, this is the point of no return

I won't turn around

    My InterpretationThis song seems to be about a former love and how caught up we get in wanting it back to its old innocence and purity...

    "There's a memory of how we used to be
    That I can see through the flames"

    Basically this is saying that he can still see his former love and clearly, how it used to be. And the flames symbolize how it was changed and ruined.

    "I am hypnotized as I fantasize
    Forgetting lies and pain"

    He is lost in the thought of it and its beauty to him. He is able to forget all the things that did ruin it or change it. Its so attractive to him that he his hypnotized.

    "But I can't go back"

    But he has to face the reality that he cannot go back to it no matter how much he wants to.

    "The ashes call my name"

    I think this is pointing out that some of the damage he inflicted and it was caused by him...and some are pieces of him.

    "Pouring the fuel, fanning the flames
    Breaking the habit and melting the chains
    Embracing the fear, chasing the fight
    The glow of the fire will light up the night
    The bridges are burning, the heat's on my face
    Making the past an unreachable place
    Pouring the fuel, fanning the flames
    I know, this is the point of no return"

    I think this is clear to anyone who has had to move on from someone or something that you once loved and possibly still do. you have to completely destroy your link to that thing, whether it is moving out or simply deleting their number from your phone. Once you cross that line you can't go back...but it is necessary.

    "It's uncontrollable
    Such a beautiful desire"

    I think this is clearly his desire to still want to go back to things regardless of the fact that he is destroying his way of getting back there.

    "There's something sinister about the way it hurts
    When I watch it burn
    Because I can't go back"

    Basically doing what he must is causing him great pain, severing this connection or "bridge" is hurting him so terribly but it once again has to be done.

    "I won't turn around"

    This is such a good ending line. Now that he has run the gauntlet and he has cut everything from himself that he needed to and destroyed any link he had to, he isn't going back and he is moving on.
