Disturbed – Inside The Fire lyrics

Devon
Won't go to heaven
She's just another lost soul, about to be mine again
Leave her
We will receive her
It is beyond your control
Will you ever meet again

Devon
One of Eleven
Who had been rendered unwhole
As a little child.
She was taken
And then forsaken
You will remember it all
Let it fill your mind again

Devon lies beyond this portal
Take the word of one immortal
Give your soul to me
For eternity
Release your life
To begin another time with her
End your grief with me
There's another way
Release your life
Take your place inside the fire with her

Sever
Now and forever
You're just another lost soul about to be mine again
See her, you'll never free her
You must surrender it all
If you'd like to meet again

Fire
For you desire
As she begins to turn cold for the final time
You will shiver
Till you deliver
You will remember it all
Let it fill your mind again

Devon lies beyond this portal
Take the word of one immortal
Give your soul to me
For eternity
Release your life
To begin another time with her
End your grief with me
There's another way
Release your life
Take your place inside the fire with her

[Guitar Solo]

Give your soul to me
For eternity
Release your life
To begin another time with her
End your grief with me
There's another way
Release your life
Take your place inside the fire with her

Devon
One of Eleven
Who had been rendered unwhole
As a little child.
She was taken,
And then forsaken
You will remember it all
Let it fill your mind again

    Guitarist Dan Donegan explained to Artist Direct about this tale of someone plunging into the afterlife in the hope of reuniting with his deceased girlfriend: "It's a really dark vision and the song, the lyrics and the meaning, is very dark. It's the darkest stuff that I think David (singer David Draiman) has ever written lyrically. It's about a girl he was in a relationship with. She's committed suicide, and he just has the voice of the devil over his shoulder trying to provoke him to take his own life to join her again, because the only chance for him to be with her again is if he takes his life. We're not condoning suicide off of this, it's just more of the temptation to join a girlfriend that was very confused and messed up and wanted out."

    Wow, Disturbed is a really powerful band. It's one of those rare newer lyrics, but still old school kind of driveing melody. If you watch the full video its a lot easier to get this. He is seriously thinking about suicide because he wants to be with Devon. But in the end he beats it. I like that part. Also, the lead guitar wtf! One of the coolest solos I've ever heard. And that tapping technique is really interesting.

    This song is about his ex commiting suicide, Taken and then forsaken can be the whole foster thing but it can also take a religous look at God taking her from this world then condeming her to hell. The one of eleven is one I'm not sure at all but I have a guess that from Revalations in the bible that there will be 12 "prophets" and if the true one is killed satan will take his toll on the earth. 1 of 11 can mean 1 of the 11 false prophets.

    David lost his girlfriend to suicide. She committed herself because she was suffering from addiction to herion, back then david and devon was 17-18 years of age. David blame himself for years on her death madding him own self and asking should he re unite with his love or go on in life with out her. David also battle his demons with suicide because of devon, that's why one may hear a madding laugh through out the song if listen to it.
