Petra - Witch Hunt Lyrics

[Based on 1 Timothy 4:7, Titus 3:9]

Everybody look there's a new bandwagon in town
Hop on board and let the wind carry you around
Seems like there's not enough to keep us busy till the Lord comes back
Don Quixote's gotta have another windmill to attack

Another witch hunt looking for evil wherever we can find it
Off on a tangent, hope the Lord won't mind it
Another witch hunt, takin' a break from all our gospel labor
On a crusade but we forgot our saber

There's a new way to spend all our energies
We're up in arms instead of down on our knees
Walkin' over dollars trying to find another dime
Never mind the souls 'cause we really haven't got the time

So send out the dogs and tally ho
Before we sleep tonight we've got miles to go
No one is safe, no stone's left unturned
And we won't stop until somebody gets burned
Bro Bro Bro Bro Bro Bro Brothers

Petra Witch Hunt Comments
  1. Mark Anthony Lee

    Play Witch Hunt backwards slowed down....I was shocked. I am a former Christian who loved Petra. I wonder if I am one of the first to catch their creative way of revealing a secret side. Haha.

    My dad introduced me into Petra YEARS ago when I was like 4-5 years old. He had a cassette tape signed by John Schlitt but my mom accidentally threw it away so she got him the Farewell CD signed by the whole band. I enjoyed it so much but our van broke down and had to get crushed.. We don't know if the CD was crushed with it but he still has the paper signed by the band atleast. But I grew into the other CDS of petra not just beyond belief and farewell, and when I played this song he was like "Ew this sounds like 70s Disco!" I was like "DUDE THIS MUSIC IS AMAZING!!!" So I played 'All Fired Up!' instead for him.

    And for those who don't know, Petra is by far and away the greatest Christian rock band ever. Period!

  9. yubertuber1

    Been listening to Petra for almost 35 years and this song since the day it came out. For the life of me I still can't figure out what they say at 2:15 except for...Okay cheerie oh, where on another....

    This song depicts someone trying to pull the speck of sawdust from his brothers eye, and he has a TELEPHONE POLE IN HIS OWN. This.inquisition garbage didn't work for the early church in the Middle Ages, and it doesn't work now If the God that lives in us isn't strong enough to handle a little rock and roll, and use it to get His message acoss to the world, we need to evaluate OUR relationship with Him.

  11. packerlandmike

    The message of this song is that some Christians are busy looking for the latest thing to be offended about. Instead of seeking the Lord for guidance, living for Him and telling others about eternal life in Jesus. The song is actually a rather biting piece of satire that I didn't understand when I was sixteen years old.


    It's also about arguing over stupid, non-essential doctrinal issues with each other.

  12. Laura McGhee

    Also, if you're against this awesome music...why are you even on here??? "Christians" like yourself give an image that God is full of hate, which pushes away the people that want to know more about Him. The music saves souls. That's all that matters. Judgmental people like yourself give Christianity a horrible name and non-believers hate us to death because they're used to idiots judging them. So music like this isn't to blame for lost souls; it's people like you.

    Your Cleary a false Phohete trying to lead people to hell. Praying for you.

  15. Bruce Durham

    Some Christian leaders Christian rock music is from the devil no matter how many souls it saves. This song is about them.

  16. Ichton Rubarb

    "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known."

  17. dutchmcgee101

    well there's still crazies like Steven Anderson.

  18. Zachariah Connor

  19. Zachariah Connor

    I think Greg sounds better in this song than the others on this album.

  20. PhoenixAngel429

    I doubt a lot of Church leaders these days heard this song. I think they should.

  21. Ransom's Cave

    "Lookin for evil wherever we can find it, off on a tangent hope the Lord won't mind it!" Yep, that's about right!
