35 We can't wait N
36 To burn it to the ground F Line 20 is an example of a euphemism.
The phrase "You held me high" is actually referring to the other person giving the author courage or positive thinking.

Line 24 is an example of euphemism. The phrase "You struck me down, when I kissed that ring" is referring to the fact that the other person hurt the author after he/she did so much for the other person. Euphemisms, Allusions and Colloquialisms Song Interpretation I think this song is explaining a situation in
which two people (the author and another
person) are trying to have a relationship
with each other, but every time they get close to each other, things go bad again. I think this because it is written in the song "We're building it up, to burn it down"-Chorus: Lines 9,10. The author also blames the other person a lot for the mishap that happens between the two. The author talks about how he tries so hard but the other person always ruins everything. The author conveys this in the song when he sings "And struck me down, when I kissed that ring"-Line 24. This line shows how the author "kisses her ring", or does something for the other person that is nice, but then that person strikes the author down. Figurative Language Line 2 is an example of imagery.
The phrase, "As explosions broke in the sky" gives you an image in your head of bombs going off and fire lighting up the night sky.

Lines 3 and 4 is an example of hyperbole. The phrase, "All that I needed was the one thing I couldn't find" is exaggerating in the fact that a person does not only need one thing.

Line 17 is an example of imagery. The phrase, "Caught in the burning glow" gives you an image in your head of a person standing in the middle of a burning, glowing fire.

Lines 7 and 8 is an example of an oxymoron. The phrase, "We're building it up, to break it back down" contradicts itself in the fact that the people are building something up and making it better, just so they can ruin it.

Line 12 is an example of personification. The phrase, "Colors conflicted" is giving colors the human characteristic of having conflict with each other.

Lines 14 and 15 is an example of symbolism. The phrase, "I wanted to fix this, but couldn't stop from tearing it down" is symbolizing the fact that the author wants something so bad but every time he gets it, he ruins it and has to start all over. Poetic Categorization This song is an example of narrative poetry.
It is narrative poetry because it tells a story about a situation in which the author did so much for the person that the song is addressed to, but still ended up being betrayed. A quote from the song that shows this is, "You told me yes, you held me high and I believed when you told that lie."-Lines 20-22. This quote explains how the author felt he did nothing but good for the other person, but still was betrayed by her. Elements Not Included Onomatopoeia

Internal Rhyme Conclusion The song "Burn it Down" was written
using many poetic elements that help the listener to picture the essence of the story being told. The author uses strong imagery of explosions, fire, burning, and destruction to aid the listener in understanding his plight. Symbolism is also used throughout the song to represent the strife and struggle of the author. The rhyming used in the song captures the attention of the listener and helps the story flow.
