The Salem sun is setting down on the forest line
Where tangled roots of foolish youth are sprawling around my mind
Now my weary sin finds its reckoning in the shrieking skin of a child’s whim
With the kingdom’s keys jangling over me round the hanging tree
The world goes mad, yes the world goes mad
And the devil’s on my back
Judges gather names, stoke, fan the flames at the vestry door
Now vengeance reigns and grudges claim their victims, settling sacred scores
So the fire burns yes the fire burns, and I hear the dark boot of Lucifer
Truth is cracked and strapped back on the rack, oh my time is coming soon
The world’s gone mad, yes the world’s gone mad
I’ve given my soul, given my all won’t you leave me my name?
If it’s all the same, please leave me my name
(My heart is riven)
