IRON MAIDEN - Hallowed Be Thy Name Lyrics



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 When the priest comes to read my the last

ritesI 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 flow but why am I crying? After all, I'm not afraid of dying young Don't I

believe that there never is an end As the guards march me out 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 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 understandLife down here is just a strange

illusion.
