the Executioner

the day begins at six in the morn
habits i keep do not break the norm
hands raising the shades of shadows
ear the screams from the gallows
unknown to death
unknown to confess
this is not the place for me anymore
the day begins at six in the morn

no breakfast for me or my empty bed
no rest for me or my terrorized head
no newspaper headlines surprise
me, these hands and these eyes
have seen the terror of death
unknown to confess
this is not the place for me anymore
the day begins at eight in the morn

off to work, off to die
no time to wonder why
no second chance, no heart
these hands and arms part
people like the sea
no one likes me
this is not the place for me anymore
the day begins at ten in the morn

criminal sentence is death
unknown to confess
these hands count to hundred and two
these eyes draw tears for you
fear no longer, for there will be no more
this is not the place for me anymore
the day ends at ten in the morn
