Sacco & Vanzetti

 
 

They strap me in on my last of days 
They fear the tides, the tides of change 
She begs them for forgiveness 
I’ll save hate for the goddamn living 

And only silence is shame 
And only remorse is pain 
I don’t know where this door will lead me 
But I’ll see you there some day 

You can form your statement on a string 
I’m past speeches, I’m past the brink 
A fortress of hope where I won’t get to stay 
And so just send me on my way 

Oh, so I’ll wait 
I’ll wait for you in death 
Long after 
Long after my final breath 
So take your love 
Take your love to the grave 
I’ll see you 
I’ll see you again there someday 

I’m not scared of lightning 
No repentance for goddamn fighting
Gentlemen, he says and turns the switch 
I’m long gone, I’m calling it quits 

And only silence is shame 
And only remorse is pain 
I don’t know where this door will lead me 
But I’ll see you there some day 

Oh, so I’ll wait
I’ll wait for you in death
Long after
Long after my final breath
So take your love
Take your love to the grave
I’ll see you
I’ll see you again there someday
