Witch Hunt - © 1986, 2017, JT Price

I see darkness coming dressed as light
A sword of righteousness turned bloody in the night
And I hear them say God's Word gives them the right
I see a witch hunt coming down

Elected preachers making laws
A murder will be legal if it's a murder for their cause
And all you pure in heart will be hunted like outlaws
I see a witch hunt coming down

Take me far away from here
I don't want to be around for this
Don't want to see Christ betrayed again
for thirty pieces and a kiss

A church replaced by politics
They shall astound the masses with their bag of tricks
The fire is almost ready, they're putting matches to the sticks
for the witch hunt coming down

Take me far away from here
I don't want to be around for this
Don't want to see Christ betrayed again
for thirty pieces and a kiss

There's another war right around the corner
They'll say Jesus is their leader, but Jesus is a foreigner
They won't recognize him among the murdered and the mourners
of their witch hunt coming down

In the good name of the Savior
I see forty million crosses sharpened into sabers
Killing and thinking that they're doing God a favor
with their witch hunt coming down

There was a place so long ago
where the serpent fled the dove
I want to go back to that place
where God meant nothing - if not love
