Mercyful Fate — Last Rites lyrics

I'm surrounded by darkness, I'm dying in my bed
I don't know if I'm going to survive
I open my eyes, but it's so hard to see
My Last Rites

I don't believe in heaven, I don' t believe in hell
So save your god for someone else
Or save him for yourself

In a flick of a second I think I saw a priest
Listening to my breathing getting weaker all the time
He's mumbling words I don't understand
My Last Rites

I don't believe in heaven, I don' t believe in hell
So save your god for someone else
Or save him for yourself

Feeling colder, feeling low
My blood still running, but running slow
Oh no... I don't need no priest of yours... Oh Christ
I won't listen to another word from you
Here I am dying and you act the fool

I wish you'd come a little closer
So I can reach your cross and end your prayer here
I don't believe in heaven, I don' t believe in hell
So save your god for someone else
Or save him for yourself
