Guilty as charged
But dammit it ain't right
There's someone else controlling me
Death in the air
Strapped in the electric chair
This can't be happening to me
Who made you God to say
I'll take your life from you!
Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame

Wait for the sign
To flick the switch of death
It's the beginnign of the end
Sweat chilling cold
As I watch death unfold
Consciousness my only friend
My fingers grip with fear
What am I doing here?

Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
I can feel the flame

Someone help me
Oh please God help me
They're trying to take it all away
I don't want to die

Time moving slow
The minutes seem like hours
The final curtain call I see
How true is this?
Just get it over with
If this is true just let it be
Wakened by horrid scream
Freed from this frightening dream

Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame
