The Fire Garden…

The garden of fire…
Burning so very bright…

Trees are all ablaze…
So close to midnight…

Searching for something…
Within those flames…

Where demons dance…
And confusion reigns…

Following the feelings…
Wherever they may lead…

Tinged with a curiosity…
Driven by an urgent need…

To find some inner peace…
A tiny speck of clarity…

In the midst of the chaos…
Under a spell of insanity…

That can never be broken…
And won’t seem to abate…

Always full steam ahead…
Like a train that won’t wait…

Or provide any respite…
Nor give time to think…

As in the heat of this battle…
Broken black hearts sink…

And retreat into shadows…
Down Hell’s dimly lit paths…

Where people talk in circles…
As time silps through the hourglass…

Where all the rules get broken…
And the sinners live in fear…

Every minute of their lives…
And every passing year…

Never loving anything…
Living without any hope…

In a garden of pure temptation…
They walk a thin tightrope…

Praying they don’t fall…
Desperate they don’t fail…

And the demons of darkness…
Will not always fucking prevail…

This remote control is useless,
it won’t switch off the pain…

Eyes stare into blackness,
searching through the rain…

Forever in a deep dark sleep,
the haunting visions spread…

Eternal sadness yours to keep,
you chose the path ahead…

A deal with the Devil and
you thought you were wise…
A deal with the Devil and
now you’re trapped in his lies…

The Anti-Christ is dancing,
feasting on your soul…

The deal you struck was binding,
he’s now in full control…

He feels you’re pent up anger and
he knows you want revenge…

Searching for an answer and
mistakes you can’t avenge…

A deal with the Devil and
you knew what that implied…
A deal with the Devil and
your soul’s his Golden prize…

Fear engulfs and isolates,
rips your broken heart…

Eternal damnation now awaits,
As fallen angels tear you apart…

As the wolves have started howling,
they won’t give you a head start…

Your reality is now unravelling,
your life is falling apart…

A deal with the Devil and
now you act with surprise…
A deal with the Devil,
you shouldn’t have looked in his eyes…

Now you regret your choices,
but they felt right at the time…

Try to forget those voices,
That remind you of your crime…

Bolt the door inside your mind,
keep it forever closed…

Afraid to let the others find,
your nightmares totally exposed…

A deal with the Devil,
the serpent with snake eyes…
Can’t break a deal with the Devil,
so kneel before the lord of the flies…
