Escaping the Fire


How could he have known
How far he'd go
To end his stipulation
And now there he is
Waiting for death
Nigh anticipation

Wife's blood on his blade
His love betrayed
A rendered-useless reputation
With all hope blown
How could we have known
His life ends in devastation

With no remnants left
He ended his quest
to discover what life holds best
He's now left with no hopes to be blessed
He chose intoxication

He now burns, he now turns
To this endless life of fire
Through his misery, he has learned
In his heart, his life is what he desired



Had some lyrics pop into my head and kinda sang them to "Unforgiven III".... as I came up with more I jotted them down and decided they could be related to suicide; wasn't my initial thought for the poem, but w/e.

My interpretation of some of the lyrics that may be confusing;


"To end his stipulation
And now there he is
Waiting for death
Nigh anticipation"


His "stipulation" could be the human limits that restrict us from being able to solve all of our problems. After being tried countless times, he grows to anticipate death; slowly growing more and more impatient.

"A rendered-useless reputation"

Obviously, the line before this talks about the murder of his wife/gf/w.e; he earns a reputation in the news as a killer, but it only brings him more struggles; thus, rendering it useless.

"He's now left with no hopes to be blessed
He chose intoxication"


In relation to the belief that suicide sends you to hell.

"He now burns, he now turns
To this endless life of fire
Through his misery, he has learned
In his heart, his life is what he desired"


Once again, similar themes as to the last one. The last part obviously talks about his regret of taking his life.
