I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time 'Cause at 5 o'clock they take me to the Gallows Pole The sands of time for me are running low
When the priest comes to read me the last rites I take a look through the bars at the last sights Of a world that has gone very wrong for me
Can it be there's been some sort of an error Hard to stop the surmounting terror Is it really the end not some crazy dream
Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming It's not easy to stop from screaming But words escape me when I try to speak Tears flow but why am I crying? After all am I not afraid of dying? Don't I believe that there never is an end?
As the guards march me out to the courtyard Somebody cries from a cell "God be with you" If there's a God why does he let me die?
As I walk my life drifts before me And though the end is near I'm not sorry Catch my soul, it's willing to fly away
Mark my words believe my soul lives on Don't worry now that I have gone I've gone beyond to seek the truth
When you know that your time is close at hand Maybe then you'll begin to understand Life down there is just a strange illusion
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Hallowed be Thy name Yeah, yeah, yeah, Hallowed be Thy name
