I'm waiting in my cold cell
When the bell begins to shime
Reflecting on my past life
And it doesn't have much time
'Cause at five o'clock
They'Il take me to the Gallows Pole
The sands of time for me
Are running low...
When the priest come
To read 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 kind of error
Hard to stop the surmonting terror
Is it really the end not some crazy dreams?
Somebody please tell me that i'm dreaming
It's not so easy to stop from screaming
But words escape me when i try to speak
Tears they 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 the courtyard
Someone calls from a cell "God be with you!"
If there's a god then why has he let me go?
As I walk all my life drifts before me
And though the end is near I'm not sorry
Catch my soul It's wiling to fly away
Mark my words please believe me my soul lives on
Please don't worry now that I have gone
I've gone beyond to see the truth
When you know that your time is closed at hand
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down there is just a strange illusion
