Execution Day
Meat Loaf Lyrics


I stare in the mirror, my eyes refuse to blink
Sympathy for me, hell I can't even think
Send for the iceman, my temperature is startin' to rise
I've heard it before 'n I know the truth from the lies

[Chorus]
Is it any wonder heaven's racked with thunder
And all of my dreams go under like the fallin' rain
Execution day, execution day (execution day, execution day) execution day
Execution day

Voices like locusts keep smothering me
Twisting and turning my senses like a cyclone at sea
Don't touch me now, won't let you crucify me
You ain't no damn jury, you can't pass no sentence on me

[Chorus]

Whose blood on whose hands, where's the promises they preached for this land
Standin' there with bibles clutched in their hand
Whose blood on whose hands, whose blood on whose hands
(Whose blood, whose hands)

Execution day, execution day

Father my hands are shakin', I see the light, it's breakin'
Show me the way to set my soul free, I hope it rains on me
Let it rain on me

Execution day, execution day

The lyrics are really deep if you think about it.

I stare in the mirror, my eyes refuse to blink
Sympathy for me, hell I can't even think
Send for the iceman, my temperature is startin' to rise
I've heard it before 'n I know the truth from the lies
Is it any wonder heaven's racked with thunder
And all of my dreams go under like the fallin' rain
Execution day, execution day (execution day, execution day) execution day
Execution day
Voices like locusts keep smothering me
Twisting and turning my senses like a cyclone at sea
Don't touch me now, won't let you crucify me
You ain't no damn jury, you can't pass no sentence on me
Is it any wonder heaven's racked with thunder
And all of my dreams go under like the fallin' rain
Execution day, execution day (execution day, execution day) execution day
Execution day
Whose blood on whose hands, where's the promises they preached for this land
Standin' there with bibles clutched in their hand
Whose blood on whose hands, whose blood on whose hands
(Whose blood, whose hands)
Execution day, execution day
Father my hands are shakin', I see the light, it's breakin'
Show me the way to set my soul free, I hope it rains on me
Let it rain on me
Execution day, execution day

great song - one of my favorites.

Philip Watkins

I bought the album at the time, this was the best song on it for me. Fantastic.

WhiskeyBrewer

There's a part of me that would love for the current Neverland Express Line up, to re-record the music to this album and they just put the vocals over them

Lois Shearing

I hadn't heard this song in years, then it just popped into my head at work the other day. So glad it did! Lol Thanks for uploading a studio version.

Мелодия, знакомая с детства. Шедеврально!
