Kalmah – To The Gallows lyrics

Waken by the scream of a buzzard
Sending cold shivers down his back

Now across the barren desert gallops a horse
The only thing alive maintaining hope

Soon the steps will slow and horse ends up dead
The riderґs hope now gone too tired to resist
The bonfires behind his back
The chasers wait for their last attack
The long arm of law has reached him
This time he cannot fight back

Now walking in procession hands around his back
Surrounded by the people who only want him dead
In his eyes the look reminds heґs not ready to tap
Yesterday a hero now a victim of combat

In Judgeґs eyes the look - youґre mine

[Chorus:]
To the gallows
Says the voice through the white hood
To the rope
Shouts the crowd around the dark hill

To the gallows
Says the voice through the white hood
To the rope
Shouts the crowd around the dark hill

Now climbing the stairs with distress
Cannot feel hunger or fear of death
Defiance in his face he is standing
In front of the law he resisted
