Down to the Gallows (Timeless Miracle)

By morning light they came to take me away Their banners swaying in the wind Out in the rain they dragged me onto the castle yard I could hear the mocking of the crowd If only I could I would go back in time Then I would undo what I've done The priest gave me my last rites my final sip of wine Right before my pending end A growing fear of dying spreading in my soul Hell or heaven be my guide With a noose around my neck and with tears in my eyes I repented the sins of my past Down to the gallows at the end of a rope I will die as a sinner I'm going Down to the gallows where so many have died By the hands of the hangman They came down the mountains they came down the hills To see me draw my final breath Over the rivers over the moors To see the madman laid to rest If only I could I would go back in time Then I would undo what I've done Down to the gallows at the end of a rope I will die as a sinner I'm going Down to the gallows where so many have died By the hands of the hangman The pilgrims riddle is so hard to solve The answer determines your rise or your fall Heaven or hell the riddle is for all The devils dance in brimstone and fire The angels sing a beckoning call Heaven or hell the riddle is for all With a noose around my neck and with tears in my eyes I repented the sins of my past Down to the gallows at the end of a rope I will die as a sinner I'm going Down to the gallows where so many have died By the hands of the hangman
