Una canzone contro la caccia alle streghe, una moda di cui è costellata la storia e che periodicamente riemerge qua e là sul nostro bel pianeta popolato da esseri gentili e tolleranti...
Oh you've burned us and you've raped us.
You've torn us limb from limb.
In your hands a bloody weapon,
on your lips a pretty hymn.
You thought that you could silence us,
make the fires of freedom dim.
But --

We say "No!" (we say "No!")
We just say "No!" (we say "No!")
We say, "Never again the Burning!
Never again the Burning!
"Never again the Burning -- No!"

You use every weapon that you can:
sword or gun or nuke.
And you think that our survival
was nothin' but a fluke,
While you dipped your hands in blood and gore
enough to make Christ puke!
But --

We say "No!" (we say "No!")
We just say "No!" (we say "No!")
We say, "Never again the Burning!
Never again the Burning!
"Never again the Burning -- No!"

You go out after scapegoats
to terrify your flock ("baaa")
By showin' what will happen
if they your plans should block
For world domination
by gun and gold and clock.
But--

We say "No!" (we say "No!")
We just say "No!" (we say "No!")
We say, "Never again the Burning!
Never again the Burning!
"Never again the Burning -- No!"

Every kind and decent human being
who walks upon the Earth
Is a target for your hatred
of love and hope and mirth.
And you'll do your bloody best to kill
the New Age that's in birth.
But --

We say "No!" (we say "No!")
We just say "No!" (we say "No!")
We say, "Never again the Burning!
Never again the Burning!
"Never again the Burning -- No!"

We know that you are losing,
we know you know it too.
You fundamentalists are desperate
Christian, Moslem, Jew.
And you'd love to slaughter all of us,
but we're no longer few!
And --

We say "No!" (we say "No!")
We just say "No!" (we say "No!")
We say, "Never again the Burning!
Never again the Burning!
"Never again the Burning -- No!"

We know that you will try to start
the final holocaust.
You'd rather blow up all the world
than to admit you've lost.
But we are goin' to stop you,
no matter what the cost!
'Cause --

We say "No!" (we say "No!")
We just say "No!" (we say "No!")
We say, "Never again the Burning!
Never again the Burning!
"Never again the Burning -- No!"
