"Burn The Witch" is a song by the British singer & songwriter Emma Blackery. It is the tenth track from her debut album, Villains.

BackgroundEdit

Written with album collaborator and producer Toby Scott, the song serves as the “sister track” to lead single “Dirt”. Blackery revealed this while teasing the track on Instagram:

"so, some of the songs on this album come in pairs. villains pt. 1 and pt. 2, for instance. agenda and take me out show two sides to being shunned by friends. burn the witch is dirt’s sister track. it tells the story of finally overcoming the hurt i felt, and making one final purge of negativity. it is the final fight scene in a movie. the outro, which you haven’t heard yet, is the moment i rejoice in lady karma’s goodness and finally cut all ties emotionally, and let go of the toxic people in my life. roses are red, violets are blue… 🌹"
On the back of the vinyl-album artwork, the track list has little messages explaining what each song is directed towards. This song is ‘For The Purge of Hatred’.

LyricsEdit

You cut me deep
Just like they all said you would
Thought we were good
Thought we were good
Until you broke me down
In front of a crowded room

I was stupid
Thinking a leaf was turned
Cos I got burned
Yeah I got burned
I wear a scar
In the place that you made the wound

Cos you left me scorned
I drew the five of swords
And now
I'm running, I'm running
I'm coming to bring you down

Cos baby
I'm a liar
I'm a bitch
And you and I
Have unfinished business
Narcissistic hypocrite
And I'm petty as hell
But at least I admit it
Blow my phone up
Say I'm crazy
I know what you've called me lately
It's time to burn the witch
It's time to burn the witch

I called you out
All my critics all said I was wrong
It took a while
It took a while
But now they see
What I've been saying all along

You took a match
To the bridge I was trying to mend
What goes around
Comes back around
If only you had been a nicer person

I'm a liar
I'm a bitch
And you and I
Have unfinished business
Narcissistic hypocrite
And I'm petty as hell
But at least I admit it
Blow my phone up
Say I'm crazy
I know what you've called me lately
It's time to burn the witch
It's time to burn the witch

Roses are red
And Violets are blue
Lady Karma's a bitch
And she's coming for you

Cos baby
I'm a liar
I'm a bitch
And you and I
Have unfinished business
Narcissistic hypocrite
And I'm petty as hell
But at least I admit it
Blow my phone up
Say I'm crazy
I know what you've called me lately
It's time to burn the witch
It's time to burn the witch
