My heart detests him as the gates of hell.“

„And the last thing I see is my heart,
Still beating,
Breaking out of my body
And flying away
Like a bat out of Hell.“

—  Jim Steinman American musician 1947
Bat out of Hell (1977), Bat out of Hell (song), Context: Then I'm dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun All torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell And the last thing I see is my heart, Still beating, Breaking out of my body And flying away Like a bat out of Hell.
