Ilona: HELL'S GATE

Hell's Gate

Spirits are flying, cold night;
Ghosts are coming out tonight.
Chill of haunting and dark fears,
Living death and going through hell.
Inside my dark desires,
Beyond real life reach my powers.
These Hell's Gates I open wide,
The burning fire leaps outside.

I take a step into the flames,
Hearts on fire, burning dreams.
Darkness takes o'er, scorching hot;
I stand there, yet I burn not.
Fire is burning your skin,
While I look and stand within.
Hot desires take o'er my soul,
As the fire takes me whole.

Noise, confusion, people's screams;
Lost illusions, burning dreams.
Children dying far and near;
Adults crying out in fear.
As I look through these lies,
I lift my arms, fire dies,
Confusion grows, babies cry,
Everywhere dead bodies lie,
Many lost this war of hate,
And they stepped through my Hell's Gate;
Just the strong and fit survived,
The rest all died, this is life.



Ilona
