​The Walls Are Closing in / Hangman

This song is by The Pretty Reckless and appears on the album Who You Selling For (2016).

Get your shit together

There's no light
Mama, I can't see at all
There's no one left to break this fall
Mama, there's no one at all

I think I am gonna spend my last night here
I think I can finally stay clear

When they come to hang you
Stand straight
Brace your neck
Be stronger
When they come to hang you
And you think you lost control
Don't take your soul

Time flies
By the rank of years
Humans die
By the hand of fear

When they come to hang you
Stand straight
Brace your neck
Be stronger
When they come to hang you
And you think you lost control
Don't take your soul

In the time of the light
Before humans had the sight
Spent my life living blind
With a picture in my mind
A vision of the sun
And now my life is done
As I wait for the light to come
I will take not a thing
For what I would bring
That won't decompose
As my body is disposed
And the earth weights a ton
And now my life is done
As I wait for the light to come

When they come to hang you
Stand straight
Brace your neck
Be stronger
When they come to hang you
And you think you lost control
Don't take your soul
