  • I've made a fist but I cannot knock upon that door
    Cause once I walk through it I won't be coming back no more
    It's strange how everything can change oh, so very fast
    Somewhere someone out there will always have the last laugh

    Just say a prayer for me, in case I forget
    And when you speak of me, don't say it in regret
    Life's a grave, dig it

    I'll put the noose around my neck
    Will you get to me just in time?
    I've got no reason left to live
    But I've got a hundred to die
    I'll put my hands together now
    Hold them up to the sky
    But there's no one to save me, yeah
    Cause I know, God is a lie
    God is a lie

    Everyday I look at myself and I wonder why
    I have written the soundtrack to the end of my life
    And as I climb this ladder now it is certain I will fall
    God, he must be deaf because he never heard me call

    Just say a prayer for me, in case I forget
    And when you speak of me, don't say it in regret
    Life's a grave, dig it

    I'll put the noose around my neck
    Will you get to me just in time?
    I've got no reason left to live
    But I've got a hundred to die
    I'll put my hands together now
    Hold them up to the sky
    But there's no one to save me, yeah
    Cause I know, God is a lie
    God is a lie

    Somebody save me!

    Just say a prayer for me, in case I forget
    And when you speak of me, don't say it in regret
    Life's a grave, dig it

    I'll put the noose around my neck
    Will you get to me just in time?
    I've got no reason left to live
    But I've got a hundred to die
    I'll put my hands together now
    Hold them up to the sky
    But there's no one to save me, yeah
    Cause I know, God is a lie

  • Jordan from Brantford, Canadaok the first thing i like about this song is that the lyrics are meaningful... I also had fun with this song when i sang the chorus of this song through my cathlic school and got suspended
  • Kelsie from Reno, NvThis song is awesome and I think it is one of thier cooler songs I personally think this song rules and rotting in hell would be a dream come true for this band
