[Intro]
Warm body
Hot cross
Wrong judgement
Cold grave

[Verse 1]
On the cross I lay now
They hammer the nails through me
The fire washes the soul clean
And what remains is a mouthful of
Ashes

[Bridge]
I will return
In ten days
As your shadow
And will hunt you

[Verse 2]
Secretly, I will be resurrected
And you will beg for mercy
Then I kneel down unto your face
And stick the finger in the ashes

[Outro]
Ashes to ashes
And dust to dust

    General Commentif i had to pin a meaning on it, id say this song could be about the use of the death penalty. Say someone got sentanced to death but they were innocent. In the spiritual sense, the people who made the decision to execute that person would get whats coming to them
