And she said not I
But she said so many things
How were we to know, we to know
What to believe?

How we questioned her
'til our consciences were pacified
And there was seamless transformation
Of rumor to truth
Isn't it truth?

Chorus:
I saw her gathering daisies
When our men came to take her away
And the town wrapped its fear 'round her neck with its latest mistake
God's been too quiet here lately
In the age of fanatical lies
I wanted to tell her hush my dear
Heaven won't be so blind

But forgive us
In Salem
Oh, Forgive us
In Salem

I know that sin,
is the harbinger of emptiness
But she was full of love for the earth

Now we're not gods
But we've seen so many things
How were we to know, we to know
What to believe?

Chorus

Bridge:
And now she haunts my dreams
Just like we used to claim she did
And time slides over me, but I just can't forget

Chorus
