Lyrics

The streets of Salem were a terrifying sight
The witches dancing with the demons in the night
Their evil minions watch the town as it's in bed
They wish 'em dead, with 'em dead, wish 'em dead

Old Rev. Parris knew that something was amiss
He felt the evil from a spiritual abyss
He knew the time had come to purify the town
Hunt 'em down, hunt 'em down, hunt 'em down


No time was wasted in assembling a squad
This pitchfork army on a mission sent from God
No witch was safe from Rev. Parris' brigade
Their crusade, their crusade, their crusade

"Call the magistrate and don't you wait another minute cuz this
Town is going to hell we don't put away the sinnin' and..
We got no time to let a jury have their turn
Let 'em burn, let 'em burn, let 'em burn"


The damned were crammed into a carriage in the square
Their faces battered and their bodies all were bare
The Reverend brought 'em to an isolated hill
Time to kill, time to kill, time to kill

One by one their necks were snapped beneath the cedar tree
The spirits vanished and the demons all were freed
They dug a hole to hold their devilish remains
They were slain, they were slain, they were slain

    The town was safe from all these wicked dissidents
    They could continue with their life of innocence
    Dispensing justice from a higher power..

They built a church atop the spirits and the bones
Their moans were heard as they were laying down the stones
The witches got revenge beneath that steeple bell
They cast a spell, sent the Reverend to hell

The Reverend brought 'em to an isolated hill

In the song, it's led, not brought... just thought I'd mention ^.^ Wonderful song, though! Bouncy, but dark at the same time.

Hello, Josh. Your song 'Gallows Hills' reminded me of The Mighty Stef (Stefan Murphy). He is a musician from Dublin that I interviewed couple of years ago. I recommended to him your profile at Jamendo, Last.fm. He's also at myspace.com/themightystefband. So, The Agency Group is booking him in US, this people book Metric also. So take this as a sing and contact them. Hope you tour like crazy all over the word.

truly amazing. as a matter of fact, this album is almost singlehandedly the source of most of the inspiration for the book I'm writing.

Tu voz es genial, pero éste tema me gusta más en versión "Intrumental". Gracias a Mario Luna conocí tu increíble música.

Ever since I found this song after it was put into an intro of a DayZ standalone video by RINOCRUNCH, I keep on associating it with DayZ. The dark mood, and the idea of "Cleansing the darkness" totally fits the overall mood of DayZ. I have to say, I listen to this song alot. Good job.
