"The Hammer Has Fallen" as written by Joakim Broden and Par Sundstrom....
Here I am standing, darkness all around.
Thinking of past, taken my last breath, the air is cold as ice
No one close to hear my voice
Did not leave me with a choice
Heaven will you wait for me?

Will I find a way, will I find a place
Will you let me go in peace
Will I find a way to the other side.

Sad are memories from the life I lived
Cannot go on, cannot go further
I has to end right here
For the things that I have done
All the girls I lost and won
Let me rest in peace at last

Will I find a way, will I find a place
Will you let me go in peace
Leave behind those dark days
No I ask again will you hear my cries
Then you realize why oh why
I must find a way to the other side.

Hear them whisper calling out my name
The sentences is set, the hammer has fallen
I have paid the price
Sad to realize to late death was meant to be my fate
All this pain will follow me.

    Song MeaningI believe the meaning is that it is the thoughts of a dying soldier.
    Will I find a way, will I find a place
    Will you let me go in peace
    Will I find a way to the other side.

    Sad are memories from the life I lived
    Cannot go on, cannot go further
    I has to end right here
    For the things that I have done
    All the girls I lost and won
    Let me rest in peace at last

    I feel he is asking those who have shot him if he can find a place to die in peace rather then die in the chaos of the fight. He pays the price for his country or military.

    General CommentHm, it strike me as kind of a "Hallowed be thy name" themed song, with a man awating the carrying out of his death sentence. Only a bit sader and less agressive.

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about after death. The chorus

    Will I find a way, will I find a place
    Will you let me go in peace
    Will I find a way to the other side.

    Always makes me choke up everytime I listen to it.

    General CommentAm i the only one who thinks this song is about a man who is about to commit suicide??

    "No one close to hear my voice"
    "Sad are memories from the life I lived Cannot go on, cannot go further I has to end right here"
    "Let me rest in peace at last"
    "Will you let me go in peace"?"
    "Leave behind those dark days"
    "No I ask again will you hear my cries"
    "Then you realize why oh why I must find a way to the other side"

    Clearly this person thinks nobody cares about him, he hates his life and he choses to die.

    At least, that is how I interpret this song. Correct me if i'm wrong.
