Sacrifice

A darkness settled on the land
Like a gloomy fog
The empty street drawn in silence
But for the barking of the dog

The people grew so very fearful
As terror spread its wings
It's a deep black well the wizard spoke
From which the darkness springs

The town folk gathered in the village square
Clutching pitchforks, gripping torches
The heat of the blaze that swiftly spreads
Blackening all that it scorches

Sacrifice... oh, sacrifice
Comes the haunted call
Sacrifice... oh, sacrifice
At the wailing wall

The surging mass, flames held aloft
Marched from door to door
Lest you be a true believer
Shall be your blood spilled on the floor

Sacrifice... oh, sacrifice
Comes the haunted call
Sacrifice... oh, sacrifice
At the wailing wall

History has its lessons
Copernicus but one
And when the mob banged upon my door
Well I knew my time was done

Sacrifice... oh, sacrifice
Comes the haunted call
Sacrifice... oh, sacrifice
At the wailing wall
