Take her breath away
Millions of our years
In minutes disappears

Darkening in vain
Decadence remains
All is said and done
Never is the sun

Never

Fire
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead

Fire
Is the outcome of hypocrisy
Darkest potency
In the exit of humanity
Colour our world blackened

Blackened
