"Hallowed Be Thy Name" Lyrics

Iron Maiden

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
'Cause at 5 o'clock they take me to the Gallows pole
The sands of time for me are running low
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 so easy to stop from screaming
The 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 my life drifts before me
Though the end is near I'm not sorry
Catch my soul, it's willing to fly away

Mark my words believe my soul lives on
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
Hallowed Be Thy Name
