"Out Of The Ashes" as written by Allen Boop Russell, Michael Pinnella and Michael James Romeo....
In the house of my master
Beyond the chains there is a bed
of snakes where evil lays
Oh, I hear laughter
I forged the iron bars that
someday will imprison me

Ooh, mother will you help me
Mother will you help me
To find a reason to go on

[chorus]
Out of the ashes of my youth
- I rise a man
And through the eyes of truth
- I finally undersstand
The way

I've been beaten with his words
and whipped with his lies
He will not break me down no
matter how hard he tries
Pray for my lost soul
Out of control the storm inside
me rages on and on and on

Mother will you help me
Mother will you help me
To find a reason to go on

[chorus]
Out of the ashes of my youth
- I rise a man
And through the eyes of truth
- I finally undersstand
The way

[solo]

[chorus]
Out of the ashes of my youth
- I rise a man
And through the eyes of truth
- I finally undersstand

[chorus]
Out of the ashes of my youth
- I rise a man
And through the eyes of truth
- I finally undersstand
The way

    General CommentThis song is about changing, about growing up, specifially. But that's obvious...
    Another obvious statement is that this song and this band kick major ass.

    General Commenti think this song is about an abusive father and he is looking to his mother in the story for strength. now he just wants to get out with his life, move past his youth.

    General CommentSymphony X is the greatest, most underrated band. They deserve more credit, cause they kick ass.
