Now immortal fires burn

Step up now and take your turn

Hopeless now for you to yearn

Endless lesson, never learn

Look into the dark abyss

On your lips a demon kiss

Living in a joyless bliss

How’d it ever come to this?

Not too late to step away

Walk into the light of day

Fighting in the frenzied fray

Clinging to life’s edge

You stay.
