When the Deed Is Done (Unisonic)

The hangman's waiting for them With the rope in his hand The silence makes him cast doubt On their innocence (Then he says) This cross I have to carry This cross I have to bear So keep your mind at ease This blood that's on my hands I simply wash away I'm not a judge or a peer Just a man with an iron heart And I can't set them free to live again It's their time, I won't stall And you should never blame me, I'm not at fault I don't strive for pleasure, cuz there will be none And no appreciation - when the deed is done The eyes all focus on me As I walk to the side To pull the lever that could be released by anymore It's a battle of will Between conscious and righteousness And it's more than one soul that's on the line It's their time, I won't stall And you should never blame me, I'm not at fault I don't strive for pleasure, cuz there will be none And no appreciation - when the deed is done The hangman just stands in the distance To be shunned in dismay From any cynical feelings, I just shy away I won't find my glory, drying in the sun There's no appreciation - when the deed is done
