Waiting as a damned man waiting for a sign
Waiting for the hangman waiting in dark time
Capital punishment for me capital punishment for I have sinned
Capital punishment for me capital punishment for I was wrong

Waiting in your cold cell waiting for a sign
Waiting in your cold hell waiting for the chime
Capital punishment for you capital punishment for you have sinned
Capital punishment for you capital punishment for you were wrong

Let us pray

Father we're so close to death you told us this time would come
We were full of scorn now we see the wrong deeds bloom
You told us that we were wrong

Father do you hear us at all
Oh you must be there you were always there
Father it nearly seems to me there's no answering
Are you gone you are gone

Capital punishment for me capital punishment for I have sinned
Capital punishment for you capital punishment for you have sinned
Capital punishment for us capital punishment for we have sinned

Take a look at the sky can you see a god
Once when he was there we had a chance one chance
But a long time ago he was left alone
By his own mankind and so he died

Goodbye my love

Capital punishment for me
Capital punishment for all

Goodbye

    General CommentHe is finally reaching out to god, wanting help and forgiveness for his sins, then realises there is no one there and we will only be punished.
