You could have saved yourself
I gave you more than one chance
"I Am Murdered, I Am Murdered" you cried
Well, well,
You could have survived

I will rot, a broken man, in this green and pleasant land
Your position can't save you now
(Your position can't save you)
You were the finger on my trigger
And the rope around my neck
As you were as well

Your position can't save you now
You could have saved yourself
I gave you more than one chance
"I Am Murdered, I Am Murdered" you cried
Well, well,
If the truth be told
It is I that will meet my demise at your hands Mr. Perceval
I am murdered
You will hang a guilty man in England's green and pleasant land

Your position (you were the rope around my neck) can't save you now (you were the finger on my trigger)
Your position can't save you now (you were the rope around my neck)
Your position can't save you now
As the bullet flies, you cannot hide behind
Your position (you were the rope around my neck) can't save you now (you were the finger on my trigger)
Your position can't save you now (you were the rope around my neck)
Your position can't save me now (you were the finger on my trigger)
Your position can't save me now

    General Comment'I will rot, a broken man, in this green and pleasant land'
    This sounds so much like it should be 'England's green and pleasant land', but it doesn't make as much sense in context.
