Tonight he sits at home alone,
He knows what he’s to do.
He realizes he’s not alone, and says “Don’t ever do this, no matter what it comes too.”
I turn my back and walk away, back to my own room.

He knows what he’s to do,
When the deed is done he peeks into my room.
He turns his back, walks away, back to his own room.
He knows now he’s headed to his doom.

When the deed is done he peeks into my room.
Eyes glazed, face drained and pale, his time will come too soon.
He knows now he’s headed to his doom,
And now he’s slowly walking to his tomb.

Eyes glazed, face drained and pale, his time will come too soon.
Tonight he sits at home alone,
And now he’s slowly walking to his tomb.
He realizes he’s not alone, and says “Don’t ever do this, no matter what it comes too.”
