I feel like singing......

Thu, Jul 12, 2012 at 11:28 AM

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.
Because at 5 o'clock they take me to the gallows pole.
The sands of time for me are 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 easy to stop from screaming,
But words escape me when I try to speak.
Tears fall but why am I crying?
After all I'm not afraid of dying.
Don't I believe that there never is an end?

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

As I walk all my life drifts before me
And though the end is near I'm not sorry
Catch my soul because it's willing to fly away

Mark my words please believe my soul lives on
Please 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 here is just a strange illusion.

Hallowed be Thy name.

    Rock on- gold dust woman
    Take your silver spoon
    And dig your grave

    Heartless challenge
    Pick your path and I'll pray

    Wake up in the morning
    See your sunrise- loves- to go down
    Lousy lovers- pick their prey
    But they never cry out loud

    Did she make you cry
    Make you break down
    Shatter your illusions of love
    Is it over now- do you know how
    Pick up the pieces and go home.

    Rock on- ancient woman

    I caught you knockin' at my cellar door
    I love you, baby, can I have some more?
    Ooh, the damage done

    I hit the city and I lost my band
    I watched the needle take another man
    Gone, gone, the damage done

    I sing the song because I love the man
    I know that some of you don't understand
    Milk blood to keep from running out

    I've seen the needle and the damage done
    A little part of it in everyone
    But every junkie's like a settin' sun

    You are so out of key
    All of a sudden I saw a ton of birds flying madly to get away from the south of the city
