Burn baby burn
She's a witch, she's a witch and I'm a heretic
So, learn baby learn
She's a witch, she's a witch and I'm a heretic so, learn

Oh Abigail how could you do this to us?
You were a product of lust (Product of lust)
And now this rope on my neck stopped all the blood to my head
So, now Salem please save me (Salem please save me)

Wish upon the stars, but they won't save you tonight
God has forsaken thee to hell, we're going to hang from the sky
Feel the weight of the stones crush hard on your chest
Confess, confess before you run short of breath
Confess, confess here for your sins

Burn baby burn
She's a witch, she's a witch and I'm a heretic so, learn
Oh Abigail how could you do this to us?

Oh Abigail how could you do this to us?
You were a product of lust (Product of lust)
And now this rope on my neck stopped all the blood to my head
So, now Salem please save me (Salem please save me)

"It's not on a ship we'll meet again Abigail
But, in hell"
I'll see you when we both meet in hell

I say god is dead!
Oh!

How could you?
When we both meet in hell

    Ha! I knew it was from the crucible :)
    We were reading the play in ap english and I heard the line, (excuse me) "i say god is dead. " I immediately made the connection between the crucible and that line from this song. Ha.
    Then I got out my ipod and listened to the song and realized that it was, indeed, from that play xd.
    I feel so dumb that I never got the connection until almost the end of the play and I was listening to that song during it, as well. Gosh!

    The first time I heard this song, was while I was watching the video (which was slightly gross at one point). @ first I didn't get it, but then I heard that line by John proctor from the movie and I realized it was from the crucible. So now I look up the lyrics and the line makes more sense now with regards to the song. These guys seem pretty educated if not a bit depressing(this I mean in regards to their lyrics).

    The song was actually written about the play The Crucible which took place in salem during the witch trials
    Abigail was a girl who accused many innocent people of being witches thus causing them to be hung (no fair trial) and the man who cuts into the song is John Procotr (Abigail's former love interest) the reason he says
    "It's not on a ship we'll meet again Abigail
    But, in hell. I say God is dead"
    is because while in jail (he confessed to adultery witth Abigail), Abigail comes to him with some money pleading that he come with her on a ship in order to escape the noose in the morning but he refuses because he is disgusted by all the things she has done.
    The god is dead part came about because John realized that all these horrible things were happening and god wasnt intervening and then afterr fleeing from a salem crowd he ran into the middle of a lake and professed that god was dead, thus prompting his arrest as a heretic.
