​Five Days To Death

This song is by English Dogs and appears on the album Forward Into Battle (1985).

Five days I've got to suffer
In this cold and lonely cell
The judgement sentenced me to death
Five days of living hell

My brain is all askew inside
With thought of all my past
My mind plays out the major role
With me as supporting cast

I can't take no more
Destroying my mind
I can't pay this debt
To mankind

They drag me to the chair of death
And strap me down so tight
And now I can't take life no more
I've lost my helpless fight

Five days to death

A visit from my friends this day
But that just makes things worse
Around the room they sit and cry
There's nothing let to do but die

Oh, forty-eight hours now
The time it just went by
The sun goes down, the moon comes up
My last night's sleep arrived

I can't take no more
Destroying my mind
I can't pay this debt
To mankind

They drag me to the chair of death
And strap me down so tight
And now I can't take life no more
I've lost my helpless fight

Five days to death

I hear the rattle of the keys
As they unlock the door
The water runs down form my eyes
As I try and pray some more
I hear the rattle of the keys
As they unlock the door
The water runs down form my eyes
As I try and pray some more

I can't take no more
Destroying my mind
I can't pay this debt
To mankind

They drag me to the chair of death
And strap me down so tight
And now I can't take life no more
I've lost my helpless fight

Five days to death
