"The Inquisitor" as written by Glenn, Barry, Roy S. Khantatat and Thomas Youngblood....
I am a cleric
Serving god, the king and queen
I claim confession
And the belief by any means
Purification heal heretics
Burn the demons out

And god's behind me
Watch my each and every more
You know I'll find you
In the shadow of a shattered moon
Come all you witches
My procedures are approved

Won't you let me ease your sorrow
Let me guide you through the night
All my methods clean and thorough
Don't you fear the light

I reassemble
Broken souls and wasted lives
I raise my head and see
My father through the blood red skies
And in my dreams I know he holds my sanctuary

So all you witches bow to the auto-de-fe
Just close your eyes and listen to my holy say
You disbelievers
Little do you know

Won't you let me ease your sorrow
Purify your poisoned veins
There is yet a new tomorrow
I will ease your pain

Ease your pain
The fire's burning wild
Ease your pain
The inquisition
Has drained the demons
Like I said it would

    General CommentThis song is obviously about the Catholic Inquisition when Malleus Maleficarum was published. I love how Kamelot can make such a bloody time in history into such an amazing song. The inquisitor thinks that what he is doing is right and that he is saving the "witches" and that it is God's will.

    General Commentabsolutely no remorse from this song... unlike the other stuffs from fourth legacy that tackles guilt or weariness, the "inquisitor" is very proud of what he is doing

    i love to sing along with this one

    General CommentI love this song!! its so different!!
    anyways, i think this song is pretty obvious in what it means, its about the inquisitions of the Roman Catholic Church way back when, as shown by the title and the very first lines ;) To me, Kamelot seems to be very sarcastic towards the inquisitors of that day and age, and how they justified all their acts as, "for God" or "for the king and queen"

    General Comment"The Inquisitor"
    This is another song that touches on the subject of faith and religion.
    In the past and still the present, people were persecuted for their
    beliefs. The Inquisitor had the distinction of judging those who were
    deemed sinners or witches. We wanted to capture that feel with the
    hypnotic chorus.
    "Fear of things invisible is the natural seed
    of that which everyone in himself calleth religion"
