Track Name: Destined For The Flame
A sound so sweet and innocent
Once having mastered all control
These melodies we held so dear
So full of heart and full of soul

Who could have seen, who could have known
A heart of fire turns to stone
Bent to destiny's demands
Demise is written by your hand

Destined for the flame
No-one but yourself to blame
Honest truths that you denied
The fall that always follows pride
Clinging to the source of all the shame
And no-one can save you from the flame

A masquerade of plain disguise
Of beauty heading for demise
A song now sang so bittersweet
A hymn of harsh and betrayed lies

Ruined bark and spoilt gold
No longer loved, out in the cold
Pearl and ebon loose their hold
Out of tune and growing old

Destined for the flame
No-one but yourself to blame
Honest truths that you denied
The fall that always follows pride
Clinging to the source of all the shame
And no-one can save you from the flame

Blinded by the smoke in our eyes
Hazes of shadows as torches rise
Memories of grandeurs past
Who'd have known it wouldn't last
Where once was something grand
Now lies the shadow of a man

Destined for the flame
No-one but yourself to blame
Honest truths that you denied
The fall that always follows pride
Clinging to the source of all the shame
And no-one can save you from the flame
