At Any Price

If it changes me or corrupts me
Take me down the rabbit hole and stay by
Hang me in front of the crowd
Or strip me from my clothing and stone me till I’m dead
Impale me as I breath or skin me from my sins
Swallow my lies and sharpen your spears
If good times give me plenty to laugh and sing
I'm faithful to my lover until the end so I give you my soul
Throw me to the wolf with my body bloodied 
Cast fear upon my mind
Shackle me at the highest mountain top tall
Allow me to freeze to death or burn until deathless death comes and has be burdened 
But don’t touch my lover because of your faith and beliefs
I'll kill for you and rape in your name and names
But don't touch my queen
I'll conquer lands and savor poison for you but ignore her witchcraft till the devil says there is none
Cast me out my throne and whip my flesh fresh
Allow me to taste defeat before you
I plead for mercy and severity
I'll face all demons that you walk with
Before all heaven let me walk the flames before you
Just don't touch her
I failed to repent and have brought reasons to reckon
And when the eclipse forms and heaven sounds its seventh trumpet
I'll stand with my sword and sentence my fall for you
I'll do as you ask just let her live on
Without the marking she should carry
Burn my forehead with the mark of leviathan
I'll aid belphegor and kneel for samael
And when the night coldness beholds the flames satan I'll stand firm with my diamond shield
Just let her live on
Allow love to believe her once more
Never let fear coat her mind nor shame
Erase her past and give her a clean slate
Let her walk to infinity and back
And if you wish for I to be chained and beaten for my petition so be it
As long as you don’t touch her
As long as she lives on
As long as no one shames her for her mistakes
As long as god forbids
As long as...
