I heard this song this weekend, and it made me think; alot.
Is this what runs through our minds constantly, but yet, we don’t know?
Is this what some people fear?
I know if this were me… I’d think the same.
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 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 this 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 flow 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 does 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.
