    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
    Cos 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 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 is never an end
    As the guards march me out to the courtyard
    Someone calls 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
    And though the end is near I'm not sorry
    Catch my soul cos 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 there is just a strange illusion.
