On the brink of apocalypse
Watch once more as the scale tips
In the favor of...
The wicked!

Saracens and heretics
Burn them all with fiery sticks
And why stop there, you’re on a roll
Who knows if there will be
A tomorrow?

It all unfolds in a passion play
God, Death, the Devil and deals made
But what about right now?
What about right now?

‘Cause I’m afraid to go outside
The streets are paved with friends who’ve died
That flowers failed to defend
When will this end?
When will this end?

It’s always darkest before the dawn
The Viceroy’s in Babylon
And I don’t care if it’s heresy
But he ain’t the Son to me...
