My only comfort is in death
My only solace, my dying breath
For release, I have prayed
Thrown past life, not afraid

Life's a bitch, life's a whore
Nothing less, nothing more
There is nothing she would do for me
I will end this suffering

Existence of one man
Hatred with no end
My madness, my sadness
I am my own savior

The voices are calling
Out of this life, I'm falling
There is one choice, that I see
In raging flames, The Dark One awaits

Existence of one man
Hatred with no end
My madness, my sadness
I am my own savior

    General CommentGreat lyrics, by Schaefer I presume... "Life's a bitch, life's a whore, nothing less, nothing more". It says it all I think. This song is my favorite Iced Earth piece.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about suicide.
    Note the line "my only comfort is in death".
    Remember who is suposedly our savior, Jesus, who is coming to take us all to prosperity in heaven. Well he's waiting for no Jesus, he's his own savior "I'm my own savior". Notice the last two lines before the end chorus " there is no choice that i see, in raging flames the dark one awaits". Where do all suicides go, according to the tradition in christianism? There is your interpretation.

    General CommentActually no where in the bible does it say suicide sends you to hell, people simply assume this. The only sin that is unforgivalbe in Blashemy against the spirit.

    General CommentI think JavodeOz is right. I can't see what else it should be about, than suicide and that way being his own savior.

    Anyways, Awesome track, it rules and is my diffently favorit of Something Wicked.

    General CommentI agree with Mr JavodeOz.

    I see this as a man who is so unhappy with his life that all he thinks about is death, he prays for it even. When god doesn't answer he sees no choice but to kill himself and face whatever lies beyond...Even if it is hell.

    Great song! One of my favorites.

    General CommentIts about a suicidal man. He claims he is the only one that can save himself from his pain by taking his own life, but he knows its worse on the other side.
