She has made her mind up
She's made the final decision
There's nothing for her
No more doubt, no suspicion

And all the candles are burning
As she takes the gun
On the path to eternity
Where everyone travels alone

And if I should die
Bring me black roses
And if I should die
Bring me black roses

This little room is everything
This little room is the universe
Where submissive creatures suffer and die
Tonight the turn will be hers

And all the candles are burning
As she becomes one of them
No more forbidden songs
Now she needs a requiem

And if I should die
Bring me black roses
And if I should die
Bring me black roses

Official statements are made
Investigations carried out
Reasons neatly discovered
What it is all about

We'll ban the records and tapes
Instruments of corruption
We'll save our healthy youth
Music means self-destruction

And if I should die
Bring me black roses
And if I should die
Bring me black roses
