The Burn.

Promo The Burn Plain
Empty should feel like nothing
But it’s not really emptiness—
It’s full of grief and longing:
Caustic and merciless
Pain:
It burns,
It burns,
It burns.
And I cry out for someone
Who can put out the flames —
I drown in coldness and tears
But that is not the same
Thing:
It burns,
It burns,
It burns.
