Burn, burn the evil in you
Not someone else's mind!
Burn, burn your loveless thoughts
Not someone else's desires!
Burn, burn the inevitability of your living
Not someone else's life!
Burn, burn, burn your jealousy
Not someone else's conscience!
Burn, burn your evil wants
Not someone else's smiles
Burn, burn, burn your vanity
Not someone else's dumb helplessness!
Burn, burn, burn you sinner
Your futile prattle
Not someone's tears!
Burn, burn, burn your remorseless life
Not someone else's existence!
