These hands...........

These bloodstained hands.......

Are with the blood of innocents

Marks that will never go away...

Tainted.

.

That is what I am.

My soul is soiled and my conscience

Will never be clean again

Forever I am unclean...

.

Forgive me Father..

I have sinned...

Forgive me Father..

For I have killed..

.

I do not sleep at night

For in my dreams, I hear them...

I hear their cries, their screams..

I hear their pleas for mercy,

But I showed them none...

.

I do not sleep at night

For they haunt me,

Even in the waking hours

And their cries ring in my ears

.

I pray for forgiveness

But I receive none

I do not deserve forgiveness

And it cannot be given to me

.

The sins I've committed

Would make the Devil shy away

And the agony that was my only reward

Is purest Hell itself

.

There will be no angel greeting me

When this life is over

I will be cast out into the darkness

That surrounds my soul

.

All those that I have killed

And those I have watched die

Without reacting at all

Without trying to stop this madness

.

Their faces are imprinted on my mind

And they will never go away

I will see them

And the blood I spilled

.

Yes, the blood that was spilled

Stain my eyes the same red

As they stain my hands.

These hands....

These bloodstained hands....
