Lyrics:

Fire Of Justice

Verse

A grim rumor fell on the village
And spread like the fires soon to come
That the illness was no mere contagion
The devil’s dark work had been done

Quickly the mob named their culprit
An old widow who kept to herself
She knew they would never believe her
Bible in hand she confessed

Chorus:

High the fires rose
No ray of God’s light through the smoke
The screams the only sound
Of cruel justice coming down

Interlude:

Ooh

Verse 2:

She’d hidden her daughter’s dark secret
All the way to an undeserved grave
The girl plots vengeance in secret
She swears not a soul will be saved

She chants her profane incantations
As the bells start ringing for mass
The flames rain down on the cathedral
Priest and parish all burning to ash

Chorus:

High the fires rose
No ray of God’s light through the smoke
The screams the only sound
Of cruel justice coming down

High the fires rose
No ray of God’s light through the smoke
The screams the only sound
Of cruel justice coming down

Bridge:

Only the stones and the ashes remain
Guilty or not, all the same to the flame

Only the stones and the ashes remain
Guilty or not, all the same to the flame

Chorus:

High the fires rose
No ray of God’s light through the smoke
The screams the only sound
Of cruel justice coming down

High the fires rose
No ray of God’s light through the smoke
The screams the only sound
Of cruel justice coming down

End:
[Exit]
