We're watching you
 Nowhere to hide
Obey the holy law
 Repent for your sins
 There is but one God

 Against their holy laws
I'll do whatever it takes 
I've met their kind before 
We're martyrs burned at their stake

They try to dominate 
I'll be the thorn in their side
They underestimate 
The willpower feeding my pride 

[Chorus]
 Under the hand of persecution 
Defy the institution 

 Their words just crucify  Condemning truth that I seek
They cannot justify
The pain, the havoc they wreak 

I never will conform 
My faith is deep to the core
I stand against reform 
I'll never kneel down before 

[Chorus]

With raised fists of fire
As they conspire 
I'll be defiant  Against the alliance 

They will not eradicate me
 Break my will or suffocate me
I will subjugate the hate
That they breed 

As the church interrogates
I cannot see they supplicate me
 Execute and ridicule 
We're all freed 

I never will conform 
My faith is deep to the core
I stand against reform 
I'll never kneel down before 

[Chorus: x2]

 Persecute 
You defy

 Execute crucify
 Crucify 

 Persecute 
You defy

 Execute crucify
 Crucify 

 Persecute 
You defy

 Execute crucify
 Crucify 

 Persecute 
You defy

 Crucify 
You survive
