"Reduced to Ashes" as written by Martin Van Drunen, Marco Foddis, Patrick M.j. Mameli and Patrick Uterwijk....
Dark middle ages, centuries of pain
The appearance of the inquisitions
Religion turned out to be insane
In these times of witch prosecutions

Tortured till confession
Await the execution
Moaning and suffering
Tormented till death on the rack

Hundreds of them were sentenced
For perpetrating heresy
Desperately begging for mercy
But death was only guarantee

Intense excruciation
Unmerciful cremation
Their smoldering bodies
And charred bones are left on the stake

The question of the interrogators
Extorted the false confessions
Broken upon the will they ended
Without even knowing the accusation

Limbs chopped off, viscera torn out
Mutilated venereal organs
Death in the name of the church
Decapitated or quartered

Evil exorcised
Purified flesh
Saved by the stake
Reduced to ashes
