She burns as bright as the sun
and she falls darker than night
She shines as light as these days
And she fades faster than time
Phoenix in flames

    General CommentThis song is amazing. Definitly one of those songs you have to hear to believe. My friend says it sounds like 2 jaguars fighting.

    General CommentThis song is about Jane Doe moving on, completely transfering her love to someone else.

    General CommentThis song is intense,odd,and awesome all at the same time. It's not easy to make a song with just vocals and drums like this, but Converge did an amazing job at it
