Burning bridges
Burning bridges
Shut myself off from the world
Burning bridges
Burning bridges
Shut myself off from life

[Repeat: x2]
As the ashes fall
As the ashes fall
Through the fire
Through the flame

Life purified again

[Repeat: x2]
I won't look back
To the chains that bound me

I will lay to rest my ghosts
And cover my footsteps
I will stand up straight and walk away
Leaving them far behind

Won't look back
Chains that bound me

    General CommentI don't get what the title has to do with this song, but the song is pretty cool. Its just about turning away from the things of the world after accepting Christ as one's Saviour. Very nice.

    General CommentIndeed, this is my favorite song on the album. The vocalist is very Zao-esque but still keeps his own unique sound. Very awesome. If I could sing like that, I'd be cutting records too. I also like the mix of clean vocals with growling ones. It's like using a clean guitar to accompany a distorted one...simply put, it's genious.

    General CommentThis song has some sick riffs in it. It seems to be about coming to Christ and not turning back. I think the title stands for a call to arms of sorts, like in football when they say "blue 42" and then go 'do battle' with the other play.

    General CommentLMFAO, when I first heard this song at 3 in the morning in the car with my best friend, we thought It said "she has a boner", but we knew that couldn't be it...now I've finally realized it's "Chains that bound me".

    General CommentThis is a very good song. The vocalist is impressive, and instrumentally they are pretty good. Anyone who disagrees is a captialist.

    General CommentCountless nice breakdowns, even a BASS breakdown in there. Burning Bridges is the best album from this band.

    General CommentI think this song is about moving away from your sins and forgetting about them in Christian terms.

    General Commentthe second line is actually
    "shut myself off from the worry"
    and its all about learning to not live in the past and push forward. you can connect it to religion but it doesnt have to be.
