Lethal Injection

It is my time. My time to pay.
It is my time, so sit and stay.
Watch as they end me. Don't go away.
Sit and watch them put me to sleep.
Sit and watch, but don't make a peep.
Watch them take my soul to keep.

I must be punished for my sins, so slide that needle deep beneath my skin.
With absolutely no remorse, they let the poison run it's course.
It doesn't strike any of my nerves. I know I'll get what I deserve.
Lethal injection's the only cure for someone like me.

I can't stop them, so I'll accept defeat.
I can't stop them. My fate is set in concrete.
I know that I've been beat.
In my mind, I wonder what could have been.
In my mind, I replay that dreaded night over and over again.
Then I know there's nothing to defend.

I wish that they could see it through my eyes.
To live your last moments afraid, by God, I wish that I could die.
I know I won't live to see the sunrise.
So come on, Doc! Shoot me up with my hypodermic demise.

I must be punished for my sins, so slide that needle deep beneath my skin.
With absolutely no remorse, they let the poison run it's course.
It doesn't strike any of my nerves. I know I'll get what I deserve.
Lethal injection's the only cure for someone like me.

As I feel the syringe find it's way to my vein, I can feel my energy slowly begin to drain.
And, as I give one final stare, I tell my girl I love her, but she doesn't care.
I don't expect her to. I hope she forgets me. I hope she casts me out as a bad memory.
I know I have spot saved for me in the fires. I know I deserve worse, and that's how I hope it will transpire.

I must be punished for my sins, so slide that needle deep beneath my skin.
With absolutely no remorse, they let the poison run it's course.
It doesn't strike any of my nerves. I know I'll get what I deserve.
Lethal injection's the only cure for someone like me.
This is what I need.

I really like this, great job. The rhyming really added a lot to this. Everything flowed perfectly and there didn't seem to be missing anything or too much detail at any points. Keep writing! :)
