Tied down to the floor, it's an endless nightmare
Break another bone, it's your ass that I'm beating
Cut through your flesh as the screams get louder
Live another day, now I'm pissed I didn't kill you

Dormant, arise
Fire burning high

Hold my rage back
You dont want me near you
Hold my grin back
As I watch you burn

Horrified by the sight before me
Skinless face staring right back at me
Walls of fire, towering walls of fire
All around, all around
Purified by the pain I'm giving
I will free you of the life you're living
Walls of fire, towering walls of fire
All around, all around me

I am not who you remember
I'm alive, I have awakened
I'm the fire, you are the ashes
I'm the fire, you are the ashes
Bleed for me, give me what I've needed
Die for me, show me I succeeded
I'm the fire, you are the ashes
I'm the dream, you are the memory

    General Commentwow, another first comment for me. this song is the powerful message of someone who was let down posibly beaten, physically and emotionally, and rises back as someone completly different. he wants to get revenge for what was done to him and wants to take over. "I'm the dream, you are the memory"

    General Commentfrom what i know, its about the book dune "long live the fighters" at the end really says it, plus the title alone explains that.
