I'm surrounded by darkness, I'm dying in my bed
I don't know if I'm going to survive
I open up 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 do not 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

HANK SHERMANN, KIM BENDIX PETERSEN
