The light that fills my lonely cell
Is blocked out by the key
That locks the door to this hell
The place they wanted me

Time's racing like the wind
Execution's near
Oh Lord, I wait for death
And, yes, I have no fear

I recall that night, my every breath
And step along the way
Closed my eyes, walking
As danger paved the way

The devil and the darkness
Let her evil wander free
Here on Devils Island
The final stop for me

Devils Island, Devils Island

Oh, there is no escape
The sea is full of sharks
The tide takes you away and
Smashes you on the rocks

The sun is shining
But feel not today
It's warmth, it's dying
And fading away

Devils Island
Here I stay Devils Island

Oh, hear the call
From the grave beyond
Oh, so pernicious
Her soul it creates song

As there is no man, that is
Here upon the earth
Labled to terminate our
Noisome Lucifer

The priest that reads the sermons
Is walking next to me
To the stake, my last request
To have her burn with me

And so it did, the heavens opened
Rain began to fall
The final judgment came, and
Was spread before you all

Final judgment

Old, weak, and feeble
And the lessons taught to me
To stay away from evil
She doesn't care for me

She haunts me in my sleep
Though I tore that page away
And here on Devils Island
I'll always have to stay

Devils Island, Devils Island
Devils Island, Devils Island, here I am

Devils Island, Devils Island
Devils Island, Devils Island
Devils Island, Devils Island
Devils Island, Devils Island

MUSTAINE, DAVE
