lyrics

"Goodnight"

They've taken me to the scaffold
In the middle of the night
Forsake my sleep, invade my home
To kill my sacred life

Forced to bow upon the planks of bloody, rotten wood
Place my head with neck exposed to the blade above

No last request, no final prayer
No mercy for my soul
One takes the knife and cuts the rope
That has my life in hold

Forced to bow upon the planks of bloody, rotten wood
Place my head with neck exposed to the blade above

The weight of the blade is less than enough

My throat exposed, the blood flows free
My head hangs limp -- the pain

The blade itself is too dull to cut

A trim of life cut from the top
My soul is free again
