Bones were exposed and jutted through meat.
No mercy or kindness divulged.
Shackled and broken towards my Inquisition,
The men of God soon would indulge.
Searing in agony, smelling the burn
As the smoke of my flesh rose on high.
Curses I offered to these men of Christ.
These bastard-born herdsmen “divine”.

“Thou wilt be branded with red glowing Iron
The mark of the Beast on thy jowel.”

“ I am not he who you seek for the crimes
Against your all-loving creator. I am a
Child of truth and of earth to which I
Shall not be a traitor. Take me away to the Gallows!
Take me away to the stake! For when
You are dead I will see that your heads
Are eternally forced into flames.
Baptismal Font of the SHAMED.
Take me away to the Gallows!
Take me away to the stake!”

They stopped and they stared off in silence.
A moment of mercy, perhaps.
Too quick was my hope when they brandished
The rope that would bind me to my collapse.
Dragged to the square, the Peasants looked on
And circled around me as Crows.
“Praise be to God!” Did they shout without doubt
As higher and higher is rose.

“Look thee upon me, thou servant of Satan!
For this is the day of Gods wrath! Not through
The fire, nor through the rope, to his table
Of judgement you'll pass.”

Tied to the ground. Chain, gagged and bound.
The snarl of dogs did now harken...

Take me away to the Gallows.
Take me away to the Stake.
To the Gallows! Take me away!
To the Devil your soul I will take.
To the Gallows! To the Devil your soul I will take.
To the Devil your soul I will take!
