lyrics

I hear the crowd in the street
I feel the rush of the heat
They cry and call me a witch
And lay their sins at my feet
No room for mercy, no absolution
Burn me to death, it’s the final solution
Their revolution sends me to my doom
Sayeth Malleus Maleficarum

Their blood is pumping as they’re bracing to attack
They swing the hammer and it strikes me in the back
Claim they’re exterminating me on God’s behalf
They want my tears, but I just look at them and laugh
Am I not what you asked for?
Not what you prayed for?
Your fearless leader?
Great mediator?
I’m the culmination of creation
I am everything you lack
And I will lead you to damnation

Can’t they see what they’ve done?
All that they hated, they’ve become
Think they can tell good from evil
But which one is which one is witch one?

(x2)
No room for mercy, no absolution
Burn me to death, it’s the final solution
Their revolution sends me to my doom
Sayeth Malleus Maleficarum

(x2)
As I laugh in your face, lift me onto the pyre
Raise me to the heavens higher and higher
Cut me with the rope, pull me tighter and tighter
Bind me to the stake, fools
Light me on fire
(Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live)

(x2)
No room for mercy, no absolution
Burn me to death, it’s the final solution
Their revolution sends me to my doom
Sayeth Malleus Maleficarum

(x2)
Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live
Sayeth Malleus Maleficarum

I’m the culmination of creation
I am everything you lack
And I will lead you to damnation
