We are the desperate ones
Looking for the mark
We are the lonely ones
Left out here in the dark
We bought our tickets but we
Don't have a seat
And now we're just slaves to the beat

We are the tired ones
Tired of too much sleep
Tired of searching for
Two words we can't repeat
Don't mean to scare you but it's
Getting too warm and I
Think I'm gonna move to the door

We are burning
This is real
We're on fire but
We can't feel a thing
We were promised
More than we could take
Everybody out
It's a fire escape

Gather round
My friends
Let's try not to pretend
There is a war between
The cold out there
And the fire within
I know that we're alive
I know that we can dive
Right into the thick of it

We are burning
This is real
We're on fire but
We can't feel a thing
We were promised
More than we could take
Everybody out
It's a fire escape

I don't want to fill my body
With drugs I can't even name
I'm tired of feeling the same
I want to feel something

We are burning
This is real
We're on fire but
Don't you feel
We were made to
Be more than just awake
Everybody out it's a fire escape

We are burning
This is real
We're on fire but
We can't feel a thing
We were promised
More than we could take
Everybody out
It's a fire escape

    This song makes me think of a hellish world were everyone is searching for there 'sign of hope', but there so caught up in there little dream that they all fail to notice that they are all burning. The change of events is that one person takes notice and tries to explain this to other people, try to 'free' them so to speak.
