 G                               C                   G
 When they tightly strap me in, give me lethal injection,
 B                     E          C                D
 Just a few moments to live, no remorse for what I did,
 G                               C                   G          
 It was for the betterment of man, I gave the utmost sacrifice,
 B                           E               G
 Before more damage could be done I took his life.

 (G    F#   E)*                               E'                 C
 There was a split second of silence when the dart punctured the  skin,
       G                              F#                         
 Beady eyes rolled back in head, body dropped from the poison,
 (G    F#   E)*              E'        C
 They could incapacitate me, but could not erase my sneer,
            G                               F# 
 I heard a thousand people screaming, while three billion others  cheered,
 (G F#  E)*       C            D
 He was gone, and I would soon be...

 G                            C                 G
 Executed by the state, all appeals would be in vain,
 B                     E          C                D
 I was not criminally insane, in fact, I was found to be,
 G                               C                   G
 An otherwise caring and respectable member of society,
 B                           E               G
 A minor threat, except for that one man I killed.

 (G F#  E)*                           E'        C
 As the sedatives take effect, I just smile and close my eyes,
         G                                         F# 
 There's a priest kneeling next to me, he asks me if I realize,
(G F#  E)*                            E'           C
 I Was going straight to hell, and he thought that I should know,
          G                                     F# 
 That the man I killed's replacement planned this whole scenario,
 (G  F#   E)*       C        D
 And what I did had no significance at all.
