Last thoughts under a hood

lyrics

Forgive me Lord, for I have sinned. I pushed you out and let the devil in. He placed this noose around my neck. I stand a man prepared for punishment.

I spoiled my blessings from above. I've failed my wife, I've failed my son. Before the gates below open, I'll spend my final prayer on them. I hope this rope will end their suffering.

I'm blind to light beneath this hood but see too clear the evil deeds I've done. I've traced my steps from right to wrong and past the paths I should have travelled on.

I spoiled my blessings from above. I've failed my wife, I've failed my son. Before the gates below open, I'll spend my final prayer on them. I hope this rope will end their suffering.

I don't expect any reward. The life I've led is worthy of the sword. I fear what lies beyond these doors but it's too late to contemplate the horror.

I spoiled my blessings from above. I've failed my wife, I've failed my son. Before the gates below open, I'll spend my final prayer on them. I hope this rope will end their suffering.
