DISTURBED's all-performance version of the band's "Inside the Fire" can be viewed below.
The original version of the "Inside the Fire" comes with a short introduction by singer David Draiman in which he reveals that the song deals with suicide, adding that anyone watching the clip who is either suicidal or knows someone that is should contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Draiman told The Pulse of Radio that the theme of the song and video come from a dark incident in his own life. "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, and it was an unbelievably horrific and painful experience," he said. "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."
