Hallowed Be Thy Name Lyrics

Artist: Iron Maiden
Album: Ed Hunter


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.

it's a sad song. but then it's a happy song at the same time. it's odd but cool that way. one of my favourites too.

This is my favourite song in the whole world. Everything about it is just amazing. The instruments and of course Bruce's voice sound out of this world. Steve Harris deserves a night hood just for writing this song if you ask me. Im thinking about getting the lyrics tattooed on my back I love it that much.
