Ride The Lightning Lyrics

Guilty as charged but damn it, it ain't right
There's someone else controlling me
Death in the air, strapped in the electric chair
This can't be happening to me

Who made you God to say
I'll take your life from you?

Flash before my eyes
Now, it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame

Wait for the sign to flick the switch of death
It's the beginning of the end
Sweat, chilling cold as I watch death unfold
Consciousness, my only friend

My fingers grip with fear
What am I doing here?

Flash before my eyes
Now, it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame

Someone help me
Oh please, God help me
They are trying to take it all away
I don't want to die

Someone help me
Oh please, God help me
They are trying to take it all away
I don't want to die

Time moving slow, the minutes seem like hours
The final curtain call I see
How true is this? Just get it over with
If this is true, just let it be

Wakened by horrid scream
Freed from this frightening dream

Flash before my eyes
Now, it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame

I think this song is about a boy who is framed (meaning being blamed for something he didn't even do) and he doesn't want to die. Very interesting song
