When I lost my faith I flew
I'm sorry that I ever walked away from you
When I died my gravestone was blank
For that, I have the devil to thank

When I was young I learned
Every last book in the bible, verse after verse
When I grew up I found
The most beautiful woman in my town

I know what I heard
From the mouth of an old woman, purified by holy words
But Salem, Massachusetts has a record to uphold
No witch nor warlock walks this soil
So the constable has told
And I'm not sure what is worse
They'll drown you underwater or they'll hang you high and burn

When I told my wife
Things would be fine, I admit I lied
How delicately made is a woman's heart
Swiftly broken by a coward in the dark

I have always been a good man
From a pious family
But desperate men do desperate things to fulfill desperate needs

I know what I heard
From the mouth of an old woman, purified by holy words
But Salem, Massachusetts has a record to uphold
No witch nor warlock walks this soil
So the constable has told
And I'm not sure what is worse
They'll drown you underwater or they'll hang you high and burn

When I heard your cry
I ran into the night
And I stopped beneath the fire
And I swear I saw my mother and my father start to fight
And I screamed "sin is just a name"
But faith, my god, my faith

And with that, I lay awake
And I finished out my days
An angel fallen from grace
Unholy and unsaved
