What is the reason God blessed me with sight? 
And shows me these signs in the sky 
Where my observations are now leading me 
I am just so afraid to describe 
My certainty 
The centre of the universe is the earth 
The Holy Father has decreed 
But I believe this heliocentric truth 
Will they burn me for what I believe? 

In holy flame be purified 
In holy flame 

How can all this be offensive to God? 
Who created all that I see 
How can I deny what I know to be real? 
Will they burn me for what I believe? 
In holy flame be purified 

Injuring the holy faith with my blasphemy 
I will face torment, and I will taste pain 
I will be purified in holy flames 
I pray for my salvation 
Offending the Holy Church with my heresy 
Before this court and before Holy God 
I beg for mercy please forgive my sin 
I pray for salvation 
This fact cannot be disputed 
The centre of all creation is here 
No debating and no discovery 
Pray for my salvation 
I abjure curse and detest all my errors 
They are contrary to the Holy Scriptures 
I recant for everything I have said 
Pray for my salvation 

And so we turn 
And so we turn 
Turning in a circle in a circle round the sun
