LYRICS - WITCHFINDER GENERAL

DEATH PENALTY

Invisible Hate

Once I saw an eye in the sky
And love would look my way
Peace would fill my mind
And I'd be happiest that way

Then one day along came this hate on down inside
Since that day I've felt so bad inside. Inside...

Economy it fills my mind
I don't know where to turn
The laws, the rights, the outta sights
You know them all to burn
People saying "Don't tell me,
That's none of my concern."
One day soon, yes very close
You know that you'll learn

Invisible hate inside me now
Invisible hate yeah I've gotta get out
Invisible hate inside me now
Invisible hate just drags you down

Peace is what I need right now
So thing don't you start
Go away and leave my soul
And leave my broken heart
'Cos if you stay you'll provoke me
And I know I'll die
So go away now, go away now
High.. high up unto the sky

Invisible hate inside me now
Invisible hate yeah I've gotta get out
Invisible hate inside me now
Invisible hate just drags you down

Oh Yeah! Leave!

I still don't know if you'll leave me
I hope you will before you kill me
Here I am, I tried to fight you
I Hope I can and not delight you

Invisible hate when there's no joy
Invisible hate I've got oh boy
Invisible hate inside my soul
Like in your head are girls that go

I've fought my hate now here comes joy
How I fought it I don't know oh boy
Some say God, some say faith
I say sex, drugs, rock and beer
My my my my beer
My my my my..

My beer! Gimme gimme gimme gimme beer!
My beer! Gimme gimme gimme gimme beer!
Oh give me it! Come on now!

I've fought my hate now here comes joy
How I fought it I don't know oh boy
Some say God, some say faith
I say sex, drugs, rock and beer


Free Country

Reality it is a lie
The briefest dream before I die
To comprehend the cosmic scheme
See the truth behind my dream

Look out for me
Let's trip on L.S.D.
Look out for me
D.S. look out for me (Drug Squad)

Rocky's gold, and leb is red
Black goes right to my head
Mushroom tea, a toke of weed
Amphetamine is real good speed

Look out for me
Come have some mushroom tea
Look out for me
D.S. look out for me

Lines of speed on a mirror face
Sniff it up through a biro case
Heroin is for the hero
It's a killer, you gotta say no.

Look out for me
Let's trip on L.S.D.
Look out for me
D.S. look out for me

I turned to drugs to free my mind
Just to see what I would find
Tabs are great, now ask the drummer
Smack my friend is just a bummer

Death Penalty

Life in prison! Is it enough
For what they do?
One day soon, so very close
It could be you
A life for a life, that's the way
The only way I say
The chair is best, oh so sweet
The power's all we pay

The power's all we pay
We'll end it all today
The power's all we'll pay

Thirty years is what they do
Less if they are good
All this time we pay their way
'Cos goodies say we should
Then they're out, they're on the loose
To do it once again
Back in they go, the more we pay
We say they are insane

They say they are insane
Blown right out of their minds
Really gone insane.

The people's vote it should be cast
The murderers would not last
Eject the filth from my lifestyle
Keep them just on file

To take a life it is a shame
With only themselves to blame
Death should be the penalty
Quick and cold and finally yeah

Give them food and beds they say
The people they will pay
Treat them good and talk to them
Teach them how to pray
Does it work, of course not
We'll end it all today
As I said let's have a vote
Let them know our way

Let them know our way
We'll execute today
The power's all we'll pay

How many victims unlawfully killed upon this earth
Homicidal killers? Can you tell me what they're worth?
They never give a reason, they never tell you why
We'll save their souls, take their lives, Let them die Oh let them die

Oh let them die

No Stayer

I want a woman 'cos it's Saturday night
I wanna make you feel alright
I'm going to lay you. Know what I mean?
I really wanna make you scream

Oh OK.
No stayer on a Saturday night.
Alright!
No stayer 'cos I'm feeling alright tonight

Back at her place
She was in the mood
She sucked and licked my food
When it was running all over her face
She rolled over and then we screwed

Alright! Take it!
No stayer on a Saturday night
Oh! Do it!
No stayer 'cos I'm feeling alright tonight

Oh. C'mon honey. Give it to me!

Next morning do you know what she said?
She said "Will you be my guy?"
I just got dressed and I walked away
I said "Now girl, I don't stay."

Oh you know.
No stayer on a Saturday night
Never have been, never will be
No stayer 'cos I'm feelin' alright


Witchfinder General

I'm coming to get you
Yeah, I'm coming to take you away
You witches are evil
You worship the devil
So listen to what I say
Come peacefully from out (of ) your huts
Or I'll have you witches pray
Must destroy you
Play and toy you
And watch you wither away

Who's coming to get you?
He's coming to take you away!
Find you guilty witch woman,
'Cos I am the Witchfinder General

The trial's begun and people come
From many towns around
Find them guilty just to please me
And feed them to a hound
Bite their brains and cut their veins
Strike them to the ground
Insult their bodies till they're dead
Let the soil be their surround

Who's coming to get you
Yeah, I'm coming to take you away
Find you guilty witch woman,
'Cos I am the Witchfinder General

Well, he picks us up, he knocks us down
He says he hates our slang
He plays with us like pawns in chess
Come on let's get a gang
If your girl is tight, he'll take his bite
Say "Witch with evil mange."
So if you've hope, let's grab a rope
And watch that bastard hang

Well you think you can beat me
Hang me completely
You should know better than that
I'll take your wenches
Lie them on the benches
Feed them to a rat
And if you try me
Even deny me
I'll beat you, you're a pratt

So come on folks
Don't try provoke, 'cos
To me you're a fragile gnat

Well I'm the Witchfinder General


Burning A Sinner

A cart rolled through the town
And people all around
Gathered for the burning of the witch
They grit their teeth in anger
They raise their arms in fear
The burning stake was-a-ready for that bitch

Singing "Burn her!"
"Burn her!"
"Burn her to the ground!"
Singing "Burn her sins!"
"Burn her pride!"
"Burn her till she dies!"

They tie her to the stake
People shout abuse
They want to hear the sizzling of her flesh
She looks at them and curses
Each one of them in town
The execution flame put her to the ground

Singing "Burn her!"
"Burn her!"
"Burn her to the ground!"
Singing "Burn her sins!"
"Burn her pride!"
"Burn her till she dies!"

You cannot see her body
Smoke is all around
All you hear is the sizzling of her flesh
Fire burns so quickly
Smoke begins to clear
Preacher man stood up, pronounced her dead

Singing "Burn her!". . . x2

Yeah singing "Burn Her!"


R.I.P.

The screams and the dreams and the nightmares it seems
Are from Hell
They lurk in the churchyard and rise from the soil
Those who dwell
They come from a cult of evil and bad
No relent
To search for the body they seek there at night
Whose consent

Oh yeah they're grave snatchers, yeah church gate-crashers.
Lucifer drives in today
Grave snatchers, yeah church gate-crashers
Messing with the sacred way

The corpse it is taken to Satanist's Hill
For its fate
Where hundreds of demons and creatures from Hell
There do wait
Its heart does not beat but its body is given to Hell
The air it is silent and all that you hear is his bell

Oh yeah they're grave snatchers, yeah church gate-crashers
Mesin with the sacred way
Grave snatchers, yeah church gate-crashers
Lucifer drives in today

With many strange ways here on this earth
I do fear
For many a soul that rests in the church
It is clear
Although they are dead and cannot move
They can't rest
For when darkness falls, the snatchers from Hell
They do quest

Oh yeah they're grave snatchers, church gate-crashers
Messing with the sacred way
Grave snatchers, yeah church gate-crashers
Stealing the bodies for prey

Grave snatchers, yeah church gate-crashers
Lucifer drives in today
Grave snatchers, yeah church gate-crashers
Leaving a hole where he lay

Oh where he lay
Just greet their deaths today
Leaving a hole where he lay
