Disturbed – “Inside The Fire” PV

WARNING : This music video contains sensitive and mature content about suicide. Viewer discretion is advised.

“Inside The Fire” is first single taken from Disturbed’s 4th studio album “Indestructible” (Replise, 2008).

Disturbed is an American heavy rock/metal band from Chicago formed in 1994. After release of 5 studio albums and a B-side compilation album, the band went on hiatus. Now, some members are currently working on their each project, such as vocalist David Draiman’s industrial band Device.

This song has also sensored version due to involvement of suicide theme in this unsensored version. According to vocalist David Draiman, the song is “a real racy song… about me standing over the body of my girlfriend, who just killed herself, and the Devil is standing over me, whispering in my ear to kill myself.” (Rolling Stone, 21 Nov 2007)

Commenting further for The Pulse of Radio, Draiman stated, “it is based on a true story of my own where, when I was about 16 or so, I had a girlfriend of mine commit suicide,” he said. “It was an unbelievably horrific and painful experience, and it was cathartic to make the song, and it really took me having a certain mindset to do it, and I had to wait ’til I was ready.”

At the beginning and the end of this video, They appeal “If you or someone you know is in a crisis or is thinking about suicide, please call National Suicide Preventing Lifeline.” I was moved by Draiman’s plaintive appeal.

Lineup

  • David Draiman – Vocals

Lyrics

Devin
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

Devin
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

Devin 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 your 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

Devin 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

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

Devin
No longer living
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.
