Hallowed Be Thy Name Songtext

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 five o'clock
They take me to the gallows pole

The sands of time for me are running low

Running low, yeah

When the priest comes to read me the last rites
Take a look through the bars at the last sights
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me
Can it be that there's 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 I'm 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 has he let me go?
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 see the truth
When you know that your time is close at hand
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down here is just a strange illusion

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hallowed be Thy name
