"Burn In Hell" as written by and Daniel Dee Snider....
Welcome to the abandoned land
Come on in child, take my hand
Here there's no work or play
Only one bill to pay

There's just five words to say
As you go down, down, down

You're gonna burn in hell
Oh, burn in hell

You can't believe all the things
I've done wrong in my life
Without even trying
I've lived on the edge of a knife

Well, I've played with fire
But I don't want to get myself burned
To thine own self be true
So I think that it's time for a turn

Before I burn in hell
Oh, burn in hell

Take a good look in your heart
Tell me what do you see?
It's black and it's dark
Now is that how you want it to be?

It's up to you
What you do will decide your own fate
Make your choice now
For tomorrow may be far too late

And then you'll burn in hell
Hear no evil, don't you
See no evil, don't you
(Oh, burn in hell)
Lay no evil down on me

You're gonna burn in hell
Speak no evil, don't you
Think no evil, don't you
(Oh, burn in hell)
Play with evil, 'cause I'm free

Hear no evil, don't you
See no evil, don't you
Lay no evil down on me
(You're gonna burn in hell)

Speak no evil, don't you
Think no evil, don't you
Play with evil, 'cause I'm free
(You're gonna burn in hell)

Hear no evil, don't you
See no evil, don't you
Lay no evil down on me
(You're gonna burn in hell)

Speak no evil, don't you
Think no evil, don't you
Play with evil, 'cause I'm free
(You're gonna burn in hell)

Hear no evil, don't you see no evil
(Oh, burn in hell)
Don't you lay no evil down on me
(You're gonna burn in hell)

Speak no evil, don't you think no evil
(Oh, burn in hell)
Don't you play with evil, 'cause I'm free
(You're gonna burn in hell)

Hear no evil, don't you see no evil
(Oh, burn in hell)
Don't you lay no evil down on me

    General CommentOkay, so a lotta people have compared Dee Snider with the likes Christina Agulara, but listen to their actual songs and you will see they are nothing alike (they are authentic musicians, unlike Agulara).

    Anyway, yeah, this a pretty damn good song. One of their best!!!

    As to the meaning: We decide our fate in the choices we make, and we'd better figure it all out, if that's what we want, before it's too late (before we die). Then it's down, down, down. lol

    General CommentIt seems like someone who's had a really bad past, who's realized his mistakes in his old age, is warning someone younger who's going down the same path. They'll either head his warning or they'll choose not to, but in the end, it is their choice.

    General CommentJust that. It's a warning. We all choose our fates.
    One of those fates just happens to be to BURN IN HELL.

    And dude, next time I hear this song, I shall think of your ex.

    General CommentThis song can be easily be a Christian song since Dee Snider is a Christian.
    The beginning part would be the voice of a devil, and then it goes to say...
    You can't believe all the things I've done wrong in my life
    Well, I've played with fire, but I don't want to get myself burned
    To thine own self be true, so I think that it's TIME FOR A TURN
    BEFORE I burn in hell

    In other words, turn your life around, stop doing bad things before you die and burn in hell.

    Take a good look in your heart, tell me what do you see
    It's black and it's dark, NOW IS THAT HOW YOU WANT IT TO BE?
    It's up to you, what you do will decide your own fate
    Make your choice now for tomorrow may be far too late

    There it is again, your heart is dark and Dee Snider is questioning your actions. There is a choice of how to live, for tomorrow may be far too late. And then it goes into the chorus....

    Hear no evil, don't you See no evil, don't you Lay no evil down on me
    Speak no evil, don't you Think no evil, don't Play with evil.

    For Dee Snider to speak about getting away from evil is a positive message. The idea of Hell is in the Bible, since Dee Snider is a Christian person. This song is saying, stop doing evil before it's too late, before you die and burn in Hell.

    This is not the first Christian song they made. The Song 'Sin after Sin' off of their 1982 'Under the Blade' album. Sin after Sin lyrics has some similiar lines with 'Burn in Hell'

    Sin after Sin - "You must open up your eyes before you're burning deep in Hell"

    And of course they have the Twisted Sister Christmas and the song 'O Come all ye faithful' couldn't be anymore Christian than that. It's a good song too.
