Fire born Liberator!
For you, I would dance around the flames and back again
Rejoicing in the joy that is you, the bringer of joy!
Bringer of ecstacy! Holy and prophetic, frenzing son of Zeus!
For you, I would jump into the flames and let it all burn
The wine that I drink, burns within, burns in my blood,
For you, all for you, Dionysos, dear Dionysos
For within the flames I am reborn, reborn to be with you,
Thrice born god of the vine, with you I am home, my heart sings, and I burn
Yes, I burn
All for you.
This fire in my chest, it is within me, all around me
Consuming everything within but my never ending love and passion
for you, Dionysos,
