Lyrics:In the year 1486 the Malleus first appeared,
designed to kill all witchcraft and end the papal
fears:
prescribing tortures to kill the Black Arts...
...and the Hammer struck
hard.

Malleus Maleficarum slaughtered and tortured
all those under suspicion, as the
Inquisition ordered--
burning black hearts and innocents alike, killing the mad
...such
was the power the Hammer had.

Though Hexenhammer was intended to slay only
evil,
fear and anger against magick overspilled:
they also killed those of the
White.

So for two centuries and more they tried to slay
both the Black and the White
arts--
but spirit over-rides pain.
For every one the torture took, two were hid
secure,
and so the craft endured.

Love and hate lived on in the face of
fear,
Hexenhammer's force died,
and the real power became clear:

White Hammer
no more is beaten; now it begins to beat,
and the Grey, once oppressor,
now, at good
hands, faces defeat.
The Black, too, shall bow down to the power above....
Black hate
beats Grey
But supreme is
the White Hammer of Love.
