Hallowed Be Thy Name Lyrics

I'm waiting in my cold cell
When the bell begins to chime
Reflecting on my past life
And it doesn't have much time

'Cause at five o'clock
They take me to the gallows pole
The sands of time for me are running low

Running...

    Song is about a man awaiting his hanging. Unsure if there is a god, hence " if there's a god why does he let me die "

    What? I can't believe there are no comments- other than the one above myself, lol- on this song! Which. IMO, is a freaking masterpiece. To me it seems it's that it's about a man who gets charged for something he hasn't done wrong. Gotta love the church bells in the beginning....
