Cradle Of Filth – Hallowed Be Thy Name lyrics

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 Gallow's Pole
The sands of time for me are running low


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 that there's some sort of 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 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 I am not afraid of dying
Don't believe that there never is an end

As the guards march me out to the courtyard
Someone cries from a cell "God be with you"
If there's a God then why has he let me die?

As I walk all my life drifts before me
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 there is just a strange illusion.

Oh, hallowed be thy name
Oh, hallowed be thy

Hallowed be thy name
Hallowed be thy name
Hallowed be thy name
Hallowed be thy name

    This song is the song of the hopeless betrayed by life, and sickened by it's futility. Such is the heart that is filled with the venom of de-sensitivity; a heart full with darkness through the denial of light. Had he once kown value, love, and the purpose of his creation, he would go to the gallows not fighting fear, but bravely standing in love as he awaits to meet his creator.
