Set me upon the burning pedestal
only you can light the fire
push me off the cliff
but don't deny
I am the thing you desire

I see the heat reflected in your eyes
as the flames lick at my feet
smoke invades my sight
it's with denial
that you steadily retreat

But as the inferno consumes my soul
I gaze to the skies above
heart black as the night
was my sentence
the price of 'ungodly' love
