Reduced to Ashes
Dark middle ages, centuries of pain The appearance of the inquisitions Religion turned out to be insane In these times of witch prosecutions Tortured till confession Await the execution Moaning and suffering Tormented till death on the rack Hundreds of them were sentenced For perpetrating heresy Desperately begging for mercy But death was only guarantee Intense excruciation Unmerciful cremation Their smoldering bodies And charred bones are left on the stake The question of the interrogators Extorted the false confessions Broken upon the will they ended Without even knowing the accusation Limbs chopped off, viscera torn out Mutilated venereal organs Death in the name of the church Decapitated or quartered Evil exorcised Purified flesh Saved by the stake Reduced to ashes
