Burn the Witch - Queens of the Stone Age

Suggested by ~Adrelinen

Holding hands
Skipping like a stone
On our way
To see what we have done
The first to speak
Is the first to lie
The children cross
Their hearts & hope to die

Bite your tongue
Swear to keep your mouth shut

Ask yourself
Will i burn in Hell?
Then write it down
& cast it in the well
There they are
The mob it cries for blood
To twist the tale
Into fire wood
Fan the flames
With a little lie
Then turn your cheek
Until the fire dies
The skin it peels
Like the truth, away
What it was
I will never say...

Haaahh (oohhhh-oohhhh)Haaahh (oohhhh-ohhhh)

Bite your tongue, swear to keep
Keep your mouth shut
Make up something
Make up something good...

(guitar solo)

Holding hands
Skipping like a stone
Burn the witch
Burn to ash & bone
Burn the witch
Burn to ash & bone
Burn the witch
Burn to ash & bone 

(hooooooo, ooohhhhh, hooooooo, oooohhhhhhhh)

Burn the Witch is the third single from the band's fourth album,Lullabies to Paralyze (except in Canada, where it is the fourth single from the album). It was released January 10, 2006.

Queens of the Stone Age is an American rock band formed in 1997 in California. The current members are Josh Homme, Dave Grohl, Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita and Michael Shuman.

Criss-crosses of children
draw intricate patterns
on the city street

and for the moment
dreams are within reach
and with a gentle stretch of the arm

touching infinity
is infinitely possible
