About beautiful flames
Burn me, engulf me, take me alive
Swallow me up, don't let me survive
Beautiful flame, watch you grow
The pain is suffocating and slow
Blistering heat, take my breath
Let me welcome beautiful death
Bright and beautiful, I hold your hand
If I embrace you, I'll be damned
Glowing embers, flashing light
Burning pain, like a soft bite
Orange tongues licking the air
Take me away into your lair
Hot and my skin searing
Going to die, not fearing
Dark thoughts consuming me
Let the fire hold me tightly
Don't come near with water
Don't let the fire get slaughtered
The light dies; goes out
Only ashes are left now
I survive, with a third degree
Don't want to live, let me be free
