lyrics

Dressed up all in black with a hat upon your head
Warts and scars upon your face for all the kids to dread
Dancing by cauldron, mixing potions with a spell
You’re the devil’s daughter going straight to hell

Burn burn sister burn
Before they catch your first
Light up the city sky
Make this empire burst

It isn’t just on hallowed eve that the witchy women play
I’ve seen their magic cast nearly every single day
Turn back the pages to when they first appeared
There in the soul of every girl that you’ve ever held dear.

Turn, turn sister turn
The dark myths of time
Uncover what was lost
And what is still mine

Burnt alive for saying what was true and what was right
Hunted for two centuries til they hid out of sight
Witches, warriors, thieves in the night
Take me back to magic, take me back to light

Swear, swear sister swear
That you’ll never leave my side
Wherever we may be,
Wherever we will hide.
