"Scapegoat" as written by Benjamin David Lloyd, Tarrant Anderson, Nigel Powell and Jamie Stuart....
Abandoned broken and bleeding
A feast for their eyes a spectacle
A murder of the forsaken
A scapegoat for their suffering
Burn me alive x2
I feel the hatred behind their eyes
Burn me alive
In eager circles to watch me die
Burn me
As Silence falls through the masses
The cruelest display of sacrifice
A savior for the abandoned
A scapegoat for their suffering
Burn me alive x2
I feel the hatred behind their eyes
Burn me alive
In eager circles to watch me die
Burn Me
Abandoned broken and bleeding
A feast for their eyes a spectacle
A murder of the forsaken
A scapegoat for their suffering
Burn Me Alive x3
BURN ME

    The Agony Scene - Scapegoat

    Abandoned broken and bleeding,
    A feast for their eyes a spectacle.
    A martyr of the forsaken,
    A scapegoat for their suffering.

    Burn me alive,
    Burn me alive.
    I feel the hatred behind their eyes.
    Burn me alive.
    In eager circles to watch me die.
    Burn me.

    As silence falls through the masses,
    The cruelest display of sacrifice.
    A savior of the abandoned,
    A scapegoat for their suffering.

    Burn me alive,
    Burn me alive.
    I feel the hatred behind their eyes.
    Burn me alive.
    In eager circles to watch me die.
    Burn me.

    Abandoned broken and bleeding,
    A feast for their eyes a spectacle.
    A martyr of the forsaken,
    A scapegoat for their suffering.

    Burn me alive,
    Burn me alive,
    Burn me alive.
    Burn me.

    General CommentIf the parts about burning had been replaced with crucifixion this would probably been a song about jesus..
    just a thought..
    anyway the lyrics pretty much explain themselves

    General Commentare you kidding me? you have to be ignorant to think this is NOT an allusion to christ, and by the way, A BAND DOES NOT HAVE TO BE "CHRISTIAN" TO MAKE SPIRITUAL ALLUSION.

    General CommentThe burning may very well mean burning with pain (ie. whipped, stabbed, etc.). And ENi must not be a big fan to not even know they started out on a Christian label.

    Whatever kids, it really does sound like an allusion to Christ, maybe Joan of Arc though? Dunno.

    General CommentWow I didn't know they started on a Christian label...interesting. But yes the whole witch thing makes sense to me. I never really thought about it, but it made sense in the back of my mind. Haha Ruin the Religion is funny
