[Verse 1]
Come listen to the tale of a tragic sacrifice
Of a warlock king of Satanic ancestry
Being possessed by the worst-of-all human emotions
Burned at the stake for partaking in sorcery

[Verse 2]
The wickedest wizards barter the souls of the lost for the damned
Ooh, spirits of the dead, for the wild and the free
Just beware, if every thought has consequences
What they think is worse than any curse could be

[Chorus]
The sky's, the sky's on fire
Flames rise, and shadows fall
Cremate, cremate, the king, sky-clad
And drenched in blood
Binding hexes, casting spells
The demons drink to you down in Hell
When you promised not to break the oath you take
The oath you make

[Bridge]
Every charm and talisman can be broken
It must be unwound, and undone
If you wanna break free, oh

[Chorus]
The sky's, the sky's on fire
Flames rise, and shadows fall (Shadows fall)
Cremate, cremate, the king, sky-clad
And drenched in blood (Drenched in blood)
Binding hexes, casting spells
The demons drink to you down in Hell (Down in Hell)
When you promised not to break the oath you take
(Not to break, not to break)
The oath you take
The oath you make

[Outro]
Binding hexes, casting spells (Casting spells)
The demons drink to you down in Hell (Down in Hell)
When you promised not to break the oath you take
(Not to break, not to break)
The oath you make
