Too Late, But Not Forgotten Lyrics

12. Too Late, But Not Forgotten (6:04)
Many years I plied my trade of ruthless termination
And many perished from my dark career
Any thoughts of guilt are buried deep within
For doubt will lead to hesitation

I'm a murderer to some to others I'm a savior
A mercenary killing for my pay
I carry out this sentence in the name of human law
Ignoring that which says, "thou shall not kill"

I recall the teachings of
Teachings of the faith in God
Teaching of His love
Believing in His only son
Salvation in His name

The life I take today is the life that's take many
A guillotine that's turned to volts
Body jolting - foaming - bleeding -
crying - frying - dying
I look to my peers - job well done

Severed souls hold the choice -
forgiveness or damnation
Many of which I've seen repent
Those that don't have sold their souls
and are cast into the fire
An evil end with no retirement

Righteous - Justice - Not Worthy - Salvation

Take an eye for an eye - a life for a life
I am his victim's agent of revenge
With their tragic legacy I'll justify his death
and in the end the mortal sin be cleansed

He says his final prayers
and walks the last and lonely mile
His sordid tale is drawing to a close
The priest turns and frowns
as they strap his body down
I flip the switch - the end will now begin

I stand before and praise your name
Receiving judgement for my righteous rage
The lives of many - I take the blame
The sins of many I call my own
I ask not for forgiveness
I reap what I have sown

Too late, but not forgotten
