Artist's Description

I saw this again looking through photos from february.
Whilst we were driving home from Adelaide after midnight, we found this car burning on the side of the road. It was freaky, but a great photo opportunity.

Slow Burn
~ Atreyu

It begins with a dark glowing ember,
something black burning it’s way out of me.
Searing the flesh,
pain is the only thing I feel,
scars all I see.

Oh no the fire’s burning my insides again,
what can I do to silence my desire tonight?
Flames consuming reason leaving only ashes left
you will catch me for regretting my decision,
I can’t keep telling myself what I want to hear,
I can’t just close my eyes.

I know that it’s killing me,
and it’s poisoning the best in me,
but I say, I don’t want to believe.
what i see, I don’t want to believe.
So let me tell you more (tell you more)
about the lies I lead.

That is how i choose to douce the flames in gasoline
Broken teeth replace the blackout memories in my head
Wreckage from the past haunts me, shake me to the bone
(to the bone)
I know it’s over but I can’t go home tonight.

But after this I feel as empty as the night before,
feel the pain and yet I’m still begging for more.
Masochistic, nihilistic, urging backward thought
My life’s a mess and I can’t find a way to fix it.

I can’t keep telling myself what I want to hear,
I can’t just close my eyes
(my eyes, my eyes, my fucking eyes)

I know that it’s killing me,
and it’s poisoning the best of me,
What I see, I don’t want to believe.
So let me tell you more, tell you more,
about the lies I lead.

Calling, calling out.
The darkest reaches of my soul,
are riddled with self-doubt.
Crawling, crawling out,
my will to fight will more than suffice,
when others would lay down.

It’s only as dark as you make it.

I know that it’s killing me,
and it’s poisoning the best of me,
but I say, I don’t want to believe.
So let me tell you more, tell you more
about the lies I lead.
