Step right up for the main attraction
Sure to fill your satisfaction
Get close now, the time is near
And hold on to your hearts so dear

Two faces stand before the crowd
Neither one who have allowed
The fearsome beast to come through
The ring of fire
The heart of fire
The death in fire
Which is in you

Two faces stand before the beast
On both of which the beast shall feast
Yet only one holds the answer
To the riddle
Deadly riddle
Lovely riddle
Of the fire

Paces back and forth does
The beast who can't decide because
The masks each wear confuse the mind
Which one to choose?
Which meal to choose?
Which heart to choose?
This it can't find

Masks tormenting, masks of glee
Swirling round till it can't see
Screams the beast with cries of pain
Death to love!
Curse the love!
Pain to love!
Over and again

Twirling, spinning, round and round
The beast is forced into the ground
Howling for what can never be
Spins the riddle
Turns the riddle
Swirls the riddle
Never free

"To whose love and hate be given
The heart must choose between the two
Only one can make whole again
Yet the other's love is true"

Screaming, howling, mourns the beast
The ring of fire fails to cease
The spinning faces ever burning
Which is love?
Where is love?
Why is love?
Forever turning...

Step up for the main attraction
Sure to fill your satisfaction
Listen close, the time is near
Whose heart will you choose to bear?
