My mind's trapped in a body below
Which won't obey my commands
My life stopped as the bullet hit me
So while my brain's alive, I don't understand
Denied freedom by my crippled senses
Without a cry they help me die
Have no will to live, I’m slipping to death
So why am I alive ?

A sentence for my crime of murder
Surely I’ve paid my debt by now
A sentence for my crime of murder
Surely I’ve paid my debt by now

I enter the court, scarred for life
They pass their days before me
Here to be judged, final pain
The jury sits, the witness stands
Revenge was my undoing
Too many clues left the way clear
All points heard, the hour glass runs
Each grain's an ounce of life

A sentence for my crime of murder
Surely I’ve paid my debt by now
A sentence for my crime of murder
Surely I’ve paid my debt by now

Returning from the room of decision
Each one passes me with his eye
Sweat drips from my scalp
My hands slip from their grip, oh no !

The verdict sweeps the halls
And ripples through my mind
I'm to be suspended in limbo
Condemned to a life of death

Encased in my shell of demise
A conscious cry from within
I am disabled by time
And I pray for my life again

Oh no, again !
