    I read the other comments. While I don't disagree, I read a lot into the lyrics. While it can be interpreted to be about a single, specific individual, who has committed a capital crime and thus sits on death row, or even someone present during the life of Jesus witnessing or hearing of His crucifixion, I take it to refer to the just condemnation we all face as sinners. Further, the promise of salvation, redemption, and forgiveness available to us all when read, believe, and trust in His propritiation revealed in the glorious red letters gives this song and lyrics a rather profound meaning to me

    I see this from the perspective of the centurion at the foot of the Cross; we were all on 'death row' destined for Hell. The sign was placed after they nailed Him to the tree - it could have easily been 'red letters' covered and splattered by the blood of the Lamb. In Matthew 27 verse 51 the earth shook when Christ gave up his spirit and in verse 54 the centurion acknowledged that "surely He was the Son of God" which is when he began to feel his freedom as the walls around his heart began to fall.

    The man in the song was in BIG trouble (Clearly. I mean, the first lyrics are,"There I was on death row. Guilty in the first degree." So, obviously the man has done something REALLY bad.) But at some point, someone has given him a Bible and he has "Read, the red letters" the words of the Lord, Jesus Christ. Which turned his life around. After this it says "The breath of God entered my lungs." So he has either accepted the Lord and gone to heaven, or has been brought back to life by the Lord's own breath.
    So, I hope this was helpful!
