(The church police + the Nostradamus Choir)
If only half of what we hear is true
You got yourself a problem
If only half of what they say you do
Is base upon facts
We've got to take this seriously
And you might just be in trouble
We're gonna act accordingly
As you can expect

We order your arrest
And we'll put you to the test

You undermine the church with lies and superstition
There's only one God, only one religion
You gotta prove your faith to the inquisition

We're told about your sympathies
Your insults to the holy statue
Committing acts of heresy
Is more than we can take

Your strange beliefs will take their toll
We know how to handle traitors
So let us purify your soul
And burn you at the stake

We offer you a chance
To pray and make amends

We fight a holy war; yes we're on a mission
Our perseverance equals you ambition
So admit your guilt to the inquisition

(Choir)
Kyrie, kyrie eleison

(The church police)
We order your arrest
And we'll put you to the test

You undermine the church with lies and superstition
There's only one God, only one religion
You gotta prove your faith to the inquisition
