Witch Hunt

This song was created for Game of Bands round 205 : "Halloween"

Lyrics:

[Verse]
Amid simmering tensions
Spectral Evidence
Suspicion and rumors
Paranoia ferments

Mass hysteria
Young hidden mystics
Accused occultists
Black magic tricks

[Chorus]
Outcasts and scapegoats
The devil in the shadows
Peering eyes and pointed fingers
Sent them to the gallows

The innocent would drown
When dunked into the lake
The guilty ones who floated
Were burned upon a stake

[Verse]
A knock at the door
Comes in the night
Trial and torture
A life filled with fright

Satanic panic
Fear and resentment
So many convicted
Guilty of bewitchment

[Chorus]
Outcasts and scapegoats
The devil in the shadows
Peering eyes and pointed fingers
Sent them to the gallows

The innocent would drown
When dunked into the lake

[Bridge]
Would they have hunted me?
Would they have hunted you?
When evil embers glow
Stoking the flames will make them grow
Would they have hunted me?
Would they have hunted you?
When evil embers glow
Stoking the flames will make them grow

[Chorus]
Outcasts and scapegoats
The devil in the shadows
Peering eyes and pointed fingers
Sent them to the gallows

The innocent would drown
When dunked into the lake
The guilty ones who floated
Were burned upon a stake
[Exit]
