Ashes, ashes, in the night
One more trick, another fight

Never, never, rise again
One more death for all your sins

Poison, poison, in your veins
Fall within the cradle of flames

Deadly, deadly, catch your breath
Twelve loud tolls will announce your death

Lovely, lovely, thought you were mine
What you did should be a crime

Forest, forest, safety found
Now six feet under in the ground

Hour, hour, its finally here
One last trick, no more tears

The author's comments:
I vaguely remember this originally being a song I made in second grade. I imagined myself as a witch who had been wronged by a lover and was chanting a spell.
