lyrics

You told me of a night the water would not run hot

and she brought in a pot for the bath,
it was boiling at the brim

an accident, the scalding water spilled unlocking secrets in

souls memories released in screams as it touched your skin

)
all at once the burning flooded your mind, back to a time

when women were burned, matches were struck
as the clock struck noon

townfolk gathered to see you bloom

to see you bloom, bloom in the flames of

what would become of those who practiced magic

what would become of those who knew the ways of the moon
these, the memories, seeds laid in our fertile minds,

of tragedies, screams sounding in the halls of the time



Hammer of witches, Pounding, Pounding 

Hammer of witches, Burning alive

Hammer of witches, Merging as One with the Light

Malleus Maleficarum



I was there too in that time of darkness and fire

I clearly recall seeing your delicate face that day in the crowd

I was exemplified, tied and nude, high upon the pyre

The sound of the wood was incredibly loud

I remember the look in her eyes as the old woman stared

I remember the sun reflecting in her granddaughters hair,

I remember the sweet smell of bay leaves on the wind

carrying the prayers we made at the chalice well
and the secrets therein 




And he was there too, watching the scene with such countenance

this man we both knew, biblically, a lord of the old ways,

a figure of dreams, denouncer of craft, denouncer of providence

adept at spinning his wheels to feed off the craze 



Hammer of witches, Pounding, Pounding

Hammer of witches, Burning alive

Hammer of witches, Merging as One with the Light

Malleus Maleficarum

in

in his mind, held he the sacred blade
it was carved of crystal stone
into your side, he thrust and contact he made

but still you avenged my death in blood and bone



Sister my sister, the flames that we took

the stakes they were wrought by the moon cream we caught

Sister my sister, the cages we shook

the fortunes we sought, the fruits were all rot

Sister my sister, the armor we wear

the burden we bear, the love we left there 

Sister my sister, the stories we tell

in ashes we fell, in ashes we fell


in flames we did rise and in ashes we fell

consumed by the heat as we cast our last spell

engulfed in the flames at the sound of the bell

in ashes we fell, in ashes we fell

we merged with the light and the darkness did tell

the darkness did tell, the darkness did tell

the song of the night still heard by the well

In ashes we fell, in ashes we fell
