Now,
Your heroes have fallen
Champion-less
The seas are rising

So torch every banner,
Every hope of surviving
Lifetime is waking
Security has left you
Treading water

Now taste the fear
Tasting the uncertainty

What will you do? (What will you do?)
When there's nothing left for you to cling to
What will you do? (What will you do?)
When your life has rot
Thrive in your emptiness

Burn all you love
There's no hope for the weak
Your heroes have died

There is...
No Hope.

For it still flies
In the Abyss (In the Abyss)
I'll find one
Beg for a way
Out from the nest

Can you hear it?
Can you hear the sound?
As our broken Idols
Come crashing down.

Now taste the fear
Now, taste the fear

Burn all you love
There's no hope for the weak
Your Heroes have died
Burn all you love
There's no hope for the weak

Burn all you love

    People you idolise influence you in negative ways and through no real fault of their own lead you down a detrimental path. They offer you an excuse in your own mind and hence your idols can act as anchors in your life. One example would be and problem alcoholic fan who idolises say pantera and whenever things get rough through problems his drinking has caused that's who you listen to. It provides you with a means of justification which in turn anchors you to that problem. Thats how i view it anyway.

    It means to live life as you. You were born as an original, as a unique person who is different from all those around you. The song is saying to stay as that not to turn into a copy and become someone you are not

    It means be yourself, dont look up to idols because they are always at fault like you, burn everything you love means burn the things that occupy your heart so that you can replace it with something else

    When you put your trust and hope in something that's fallible, your devastation can be that much more horrible when they themselves fall.

    It is showing and telling us that we now have no hope, nothing to help us, nothing at all for us to hang on to. We have been living lies and as we face the truth, nothing awaits us.
