about

In 1692, Martha Corey was accused, convicted, and hanged as a witch during the Salem witch trials. Even her own husband testified against her and cooperated with the courts until he himself was accused of witchcraft and pressed to death. This album explores their story.

Track Name: twisting
i assure you
that what i speak is true
in the evening she bade me to bed
but i chose to pray instead
but my payers made no sense
behold her approach me
as she kneels
sense the presence of evil
i assure you this has nothing to do with the fact we do not get along

i am confounded
i play the heretic
and i can feel her evil
staring holes right through me
so add my testimony
to her terror
she is wicked
arousing anger
i assure you
nay i implore you
to believe me when i say that
this has nothing to do with the fact we do not get along

and now i feel her terror
i do regret her terror
for i feed her terror
i do regret her terror
i regret she's twisting her terror
Track Name: a soul for sale
mass hysteria
black one has appeared
pen my name in blood
sign
black one
lord of soot
lord of soot

gospel is my name
and darkness my soul will never claim
my guilt i must deny
on oath i did not sign
i did not sign
i did not sign….
Track Name: liars in God's eye
wonder to yourself how can it come to this
that you can be arrested for some fairytale
when someone says you've done some terrible thing
because they do not like it when you speak your mind
and all your thoughts and opinions conflict with mine
but when you're old you're ugly accusations fly
they call you malcontent
as though there are no consequences
to their false witnesses
they refuse to see their lie
with vengeance in their eyes
and you cannot defend yourself
against a mob that has been all worked up
until they want to see your blood
you did not kiss the black one
did not sign you swear it on your life
you did not speak to shadows
even still prepare yourself for glory
for the black one lives inside the minds
of every one of you who twist the
words inside to suit your selfishness
your evil far outweighs the righteousness
you claim to live by
liars in God's eye….
Track Name: here in Salem
everything here is dark
everything here is sinister
everything here is fear
everything here is paranoia
everything here is misdirection
everything here is heresy
everything here is falsified
everything here is lies on lies
everything here is death
everything here is blood & scars
everything here is wrong
everything here is wrong
here in Salem

everything here is murder…

here in Salem
Track Name: i'm gonna get those witches
i'm gonna get those witches
they think they can hide from me
i've got a cord and a chair that say differently
i'm gonna get those witches
they think they can hide from me
i'm going to make them all confess eventually

bully is my name
at least that's what they call
so i guess i ought to act that way
if that's the way they want to play
i've got to keep this oath
to defend the holy sovereign realm
from all the devil's ills
oh the devil's will

i'm gonna get those witches
they think they can hide from me
i've got a cord and a chair that say differently
i'm gonna get those witches
they think they can hide from me
i'm gonna make them all confess eventually

all along the gallows
you can see the hanging
decorating
twenty-four in all
ha ha ha ha ha
behold the sun that falls
descends on the dead
and the dawn of this last day
is fading with the light from their eyes
inside their heads

i'm gonna get those witches
they think they can hide from me
i've got a cord and a chair that say differently
i'm gonna get those witches
they think they can hide from me
and no one in this town is safe from me
Track Name: evil is never where you see it
here and you obey
every voice residing in your head
con----tra--------dic---------tions
are - so - clear
Riotousness--- lets wear it like a mask
we can hide behind a piety we do not possess
No one will convince us we are wrong
Whoa to those who will call
Good is evil, evil is good
Just like little sheep
we file along
Always agree with the voice of the mob
question nothing
its not my calamity
Track Name: all i have known
all i have known
all i have trusted
all i have loved have betrayed me at the end
Track Name: de profondis
from the depth s
i have cried
unto u o lord here my voice
locked away from light
supervisors crime
superstitions lie

faltsly aceused
what then shall i do
there is nothing gleeming
there is nothing gleeming
as i rot away in here
faltsly aceused
what then shall i do
you my only comfort
faltsly aceused
what then shall i do
i know im going to die in here
nothing can change that now
from the depth s
i have cried
from the depth s
i have cried
Track Name: we have nothing left
do you recall when we were wed
vows of love and great con-vic-tion
but now our home has become so cold
we have nothing left to hold
Track Name: hanging part 1
this is my position
i cannot falter now
that was your opinion
with which you terrorize me now
but can mercy be extended
beyond the grave
i suppose i should forgive
this atrocity
this farce of justice
Track Name: hanging part 2
Martha Cory cries out to us but we cannot here her
praying for us
Martha Cory cries out to us but we cannot here her
praying for us
Martha Cory cries out to us but we cannot here her
praying for us
Martha Cory cries out to us but we cannot here her
praying for us
Track Name: more stones
this
was
the
last
draw
(((((more stones)))
(((((more stones)))
(((((more stones)))
a curse upon you all
(((((more stones)))
you have gone to far
(((((more stones)))
to crush the innocent is more evil than what you seek
(((((more stones)))
refuse to give in to the face of unjust torchure
