Megadeth – Devil's Island lyrics

The light that fills my lonely cell,
Is blocked out by the key,
That locks the door to this hell,
The place they wanted me.
Time's racing like the wind,
Execution's near,
Oh lord, I wait for death,
And, yes, I have no fear.
I recall that night, my every breath,
And, step along the way.
Closed my eyes, walking,
As danger paved the way.
The devil, and the darkness
Let her evil wander free
And, here on Devils Island,
The final stop for me.
Chorus:
Devils Island, Devils Island.
Oh, there is no escape,
The sea is full of sharks.
The tide takes you away, and
Smashes you on the rocks.
The sun is shining,
But feel not today,
It's warmth, it's dying,
And fading away.
Chorus (repeat):
Devils Island, [here I stay,]' Devils Island.
Oh, hear the call,
From the grave beyond.
Oh, so pernicious,
Her soul it creates song.
As there is no man, that is
Here upon the earth,
Able to terminate our
Noisome will since birth.
The priest that reads the sermons,
Is walking next to me,
To the stake, my last request,
To have her burn with me.
But, so it did, the heavens opened,
Rain began to fall.
The final judgement came, and
Was spread before you all.
Final judgement.
Old, weak, and feeble,
But the lesson taught to me,
To stay away from evil,
She doesn't care for me.
She haunts me in my sleep,
Though I tore that page away.
And, here on Devils Island,
I'll always have to stay.
Chorus (repeat):
Devils Island, Devils Island.
[Devils Island, Devils Island.]
Here I am.
Chorus (repeat [4 times]):
Devils Island, Devils Island.

    Devil's Island was a penal colony in French. According to Wikipedia "At their worst, the prisons had a death rate of 75%". In short, the prison was horrible and violent. The song follows a prisoner stuck inside of the prisoner and who realizes he will never get out. "Devils Island, Devils Island. Oh there is no escape" is pretty straightforward saying there is no escape from the prison. "Execution's near," and "The priest that reads the sermons, is walking next to me" suggests that he is on the death sentence and will be executed soon.
