The Tell-Tale Heart Songtext


You should have seen him
Lying alone in helpless silence in the night

You should have seen him
You would have seen his eye reflecting in the light
Whoa, yeah!

Ah-wah! Ah-ow!

So, for the old man
Ashes to ashes, earth to earth, and dust to dust

No one will see me
No one with guilt to share, no secret soul to trust
Whoa, no!

And he won′t be found at all
Not a trace to mark his fall
Nor a stain upon the wall

Louder and louder
'Til I could tell the sound was not within my ears

You should have seen me
You would have seen my eyes grow white and cold with fear

Heard all the things in Heaven and Earth
I′ve seen many things in Hell
But his vulture's eye of a cold, pale blue
Is the eye of the Devil himself!

Take me away now
But let the silence drown the beating of his heart
I can't go on!
Let me flee from this guilty secret that I carry
Please, set me free, oh!
Let me out now!
