Here There Be Witches
Creature Feature Lyrics


Here there be witches on the edge of town
Cast them in water and see if they drown
Cleanse them with fire burn them down
Bury their bones in hollow ground

Here there be witches on the edge of town
Cast them in water and see if they drown
Cleanse them with fire burn them down
Bury their bones in hollow ground
Here there be witches on the edge of town

Here there be witches can't you hear their cries?
Cast them with stone and see if they lie
Sever their heads and gouge out their eyes
Recite your prayers in the dead of night
Here there be witches can't you hear their cries?

Demons on the prowl and we must make a stand
Black Soul Devil Spawn inhabit this land
The unpure of heart will fall by your hand
Here there be witches, save our
Souls have been lost as the panic grows
Spells cast over blood and broken bones
An evil stronger than we ever known
Here there be witches and all must die

Here there be witches and they must be slain!
Cut off their flesh and they feel no pain
Shackle their hands with sanctified chains
Snip off their tongues before they speak your name
Here there be witches and they must be slain!

Demons on the prowl and we must make a stand
Black Soul Devil Spawn inhabit this land
The unpure of heart will fall by your hand
Here there be witches, save our
Souls have been lost as the panic grows
Spells cast over blood and broken bones
An evil stronger than we ever known
Here there be witches and all must die

Unholy hexes dark Incantations
Our days are numbered, just sacraficial lambs
Depraved and corrupted agents of darkness
Chosen by the black mark of the beast
Archaic volumes, forbidden writing
Blood ceremonies, Sermons for the dammed
This curse must be lifted before the full moon
Or we're all just meat for the feast

Demons on the prowl and we must make a stand
Black Soul Devil Spawn inhabit this land
The unpure of heart will fall by your hand
Here there be witches, save our
Souls have been lost as the panic grows
Spells cast over blood and broken bones
An evil stronger than we ever known
Here there be witches and all must die

Day 82: Still not sure if the witch on the picture has yellow, gritted teeth or black teeth with her mouth open.

Her eyes are yellow too. so I'll go with black teeth & fire/magic/manna glowing from within.

Black teeth, with yellow light spilling up, and I'm guessing it's doing the same with the eyes.

Idk. Looks like they’re yellow gritted teeth at first, but it looks like an open mouth up close

I love the line “press them with stones to see if they lie” in reference to the man who was crushed to death during the time of the Salem Witch Trials.
I mean I guess the whole song is a reference to the Trials but this specific detail was my favorite lmao

tldr If he'd gone to trial he would have lost his stuff, so he refused to plead guilty/not guilty, instead saying "More weight" when prompted. He died without entering a plea, so his descendants got his house and money according to his will, rather than it going to the state (or whatever would have happened). Which, frankly, is one of the most metal things I've ever heard.

I also love "Cast them in water to see if they drown" which was a reference to how they believed witches floated ontop of water is because they believed that, due to trading their souls to Satan, they were denied the Rite of Baptism, which in the mind of the over-religious puritans and other similar zealous religious groups across Europe and America, meant they couldn't go underwater. They believed if someone drowned, they were innocent. Sometimes they did, in fact, fish the person out. Other times they didn't.
