"Burning From The Inside" as written by Daniel Gaston Ash, Kevin Haskins, David Jay and Peter John Murphy....
Running without aim
Through the razor weeds
That only reach my knees
And when I'm lying in the grey sleep
I don't know how to walk the boards
I open my eyes, and look at the floor
And now I don't see you anymore

There is no choice, we make the point
To counteract a threatening hand
Close my hold
As we near the atmosphere

    General CommentThis song seems to be about personal anguish over a lost love, perhaps a love that had grown twisted over time, there seems to be some kind of struggle there.

    General CommentBurning From the Inside describes how the person has something on the inside and just comes to realize one day everything has turned around in a 360 dimension everything came to a fall and the is trying to escape at the end right were everything started to leave everything at place.

    General CommentI truly think this is similar to "a dream in general" or possibly even one of the band members. The imagery is very scattered like a dream and the song in itself is without conclusion and has gaps like a dream does.

    Running, without aim
    through the razor reeds (I'm still convinced to this day that he says "reeds not weeds."
    that only reach my knees.

    VERY DREAM LIKE

    and when I'm lying in the great sleep (dreaming)
    I dont know how to walk the boards

    SOMETIMES WE CAN FUNCTION PHYSCIALLY IN A DREAM

    I open my eyes and look at the floor,
    and now I don't see you anymore

    IN A DREAM, SOMEONE IS THERE TIL WE OPEN OUR EYES
    IN A STARTLE, ONLY TO SEE NO ONE OR NOTHING THAT WAS JUST THERE

    There is no choice.
    We make the point to counteract a threatening hand (INSTINCT. DEFENSE)

    close my hold. lets be near
    lets be near the atmosphere (OPEN YOUR EYES, IN OTHER WORDS)
    LETS BE NEAR THE ATMOSPHERE -- REALITY, WHATS IN FRONT OF YOU


    Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems very dream-like to me. Burning from the inside.
    A dream, inner fire, insanity maybe. Nightmare.
