Conformity, the agony of freedom. An epidemic eats our worlds. I know your eyes will be to weak to see the way to walk. Not able to live the single moment. Your skin is far to cold to feel a kiss. Feeling numb to all this suffering. Where is the place we use to hide? Will it be enough to tell you about the freedom you could have. About the stars, the green, the happiness, about the soulless slaves you're following. Will this be wnough to overcome the mechanism, that keeps you away from our hands they will never suffocate this fire. They will never extinguish my flame. I won't let you fall from my hands. I'll fight until the end, I promise. It burns within!

    General CommentI've always been of the persuasion that It Burns Within is a statement in opposition of all flavors of Collectivism (ex: Socialism, Communism, Fascism etc.) and the way they stifle and numb individuality. It also serves as a reminder to those who are not benighted of this reality to fight for those, who may be unwilling to do so for themselves. That is to say; to help those who've become complacent or embraced group-think ideologies (Bernie Sanders and/or Donald Trump supporters are both great modern (if you're reading this in 2016) examples) see the light. That they are individuals, not slave to some co-dependent hive.
