(Fate is so unkind
Now I should have known
Blind leading the blind
Reaping what I've sown
If it all amounts to nothing
Why, then, am I standing in this line?)

Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
I may never know for certain
When will be my time.
How was I considered evil?
Pleasures taken in this life
Someone granted me reprieval
Decades spent in strife

Led to nothing
Repeated in my mind
Led to nothing
If only I was born another time

Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
Hell is still overburdened
How have I been so determined malign?

It's the closing of the curtain
In the play that was my life
Countless chapters left unopened
Tragedies inside
I was fighting for a reason
Holy blessed homicide
Seems I have committed treason
All I've sacrificed

Led to nothing
Repeated in my mind
Led to nothing
If only I was born another time

Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
Hell is still overburdened
How I have been so determined malign?

Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
Hell is still overburdened
How I have been so determined malign?

Fate is so unkind
Now I should have known
Blind leading the blind
Reaping what I've sown
If it all amounts to nothing
Why, then, am I standing in this line?

[Guitar Solo]

Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
Hell is still overburdened
How I have been so determined malign?

Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
Hell is still overburdened
How I have been so determined malign?

    We all work and do things in life, but in the end it means nothing, we die anyways. Our life's work is pointless. All we can do is hope we are good enough and not be sent to hell. Sorry, thats my goth point of view...

    This song is about the selected person's thoughts on what he has done throughout his life as he is on his way to Hell. He stands int he waiting line to go through the portal, but he does not quite understand why this was his fate.
