Music by: King Diamond
The inquisition will take her to the hill
Ready for the kill, giving GOD his will
Everybody's there, none of them will care
Not a single prayer
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Looking at the sky, soon the girl will die
Nobody will cry, hear her screaming ^why?^
The priests are all in line, now they give the sign
Let the fire shine
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
They say the devil is here tonight
Then let him play his violin so wild
Higher, burning higher, flames will soon devour
Higher, burning higher, the smell of skin turned sour
&
Higher, burning higher, her lefs are scorched by life
Ashes to ashes, I see a smile on their wicked faces
%
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
&
Lightning from the sky, magic's coming by
As her necklace flies height into her eye
The priests are all in line, now they give the sign
Let the fire die
Burned in the night, there are no remains
Burned in the night, just a magic chain
