Quando una canzone vale più di 1000 parole – hallowed be thy Name 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

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 an 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 they flow but why am I crying?
After all I am not afraid of dying
Don’t I believe that there never is 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 ’cause
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 seek 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

Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Hallowed be Thy name

Hallowed be thy Name
Iron ma idem
