  • Thumbs will twist, can you resist?
    Beware the names on the inquisitor's list

    Trial by fire, the holy desire
    Religion and rule can be so cruel

    [Chorus]
    All in the name of the cross
    Thumbhang
    Thumbhang

    Word of the Pope, the loss of all hope
    Manipulation is here, governed by fear

    [Chorus]

    Mounted on horses, inquisitors ride
    At the end of their spears the heathens died
    Forced to confess they prayed as the lied
    Prayed as they lied

    Tortured and prisoned and sentenced to die
    When it's the Church you weren't meant, meant to defy

    [?], state of control
    Money to steal, government's deal
    Tortured and shamed, who could be blamed?
    Using the cross, the lives that were lost

    All in the name of God

    Thumbhang [Repeat x5] Writer/s: ROBB GEZA REINER, STEVEN BARRY KUDLOW
