A restless feeling consumes me tonite --
It won't go away
I try to hold on but my will ebbs like a tide
I'm drawn to her like a moth to a flame...
Pleasure and destruction, are they both the same?
Won't you join me my dear
On this night we'll play the Devil's game

There's something 'bout tonite
There's something in the air
There's an ocean of flame
I can feel it burning somewhere
And if there's such a place, then that's the place that you'll find me
I can hear the fire calling. I want to take you there
Can you hear the fire calling?

I'm gonna drown in a Sea of Fire, won't you come with me?
I'm going down to the Sea of Fire, baby won't you come?
Passion that is worth an eternity of torment and sorrow
And so we sail into the Sea of Fire and now it won't be long

As moths we gravitate to the lantern of sin
But they don't understand --
The only sin is to die, without having truly lived
One look into your eyes tells me you feel it too
You're drawn to the fire
The moths flutter together in the frenzy of their last moments

    General CommentThis song is about a person who has fallen in love and when dead is sent to hell "the Sea of Fire" and the person asks thier love to fallow ("Wont you come with me")And the two so deeply drawn to each other thattheir love fallows "As moths we gravitate to the lantern of sin
    But they don't understand --
    The only sin is to die, without having truly lived
    One look into your eyes tells me you feel it too
    You're drawn to the fire
    The moths flutter together in the frenzy of their last moments "

    General CommentFor some reason or another, when I hear this song, I think of the "chicken" scene at the end of Rebel without a cause, I dont know why, I know its not about that, but it reminds me of it.

    General CommentI think of a few things when i read these lyrics, Johnny Cash ' Ring of fire' has a similar story to it , and the 'Great Tragedy' Romeo and Juliet. the denial of love.

    General CommentI think this song is about temptation, as well. To me, this is a really dark song. I think that what he's trying to say is that what living means to him will send him to hell. But, he doesn't care, he'll burn in the fire if it means really living life.

    General CommentI think this song is about temptationg as well. A person being tempted to being unfaithful to another. Basically saying that the passion he feels for this new person, and his actions will send the both of them to the "Sea of Fire". Going to the sea of fire I think is a metaphor for basically being unfaithful.
