Chains around my ankles
Rope and a blindfold
Both of my hands are tied

Standing on the gallows
Feeling kind of mellow
Feeling kind of sad inside

I heard a whisper
It was the hangman, standing right by my side
Saying, believe in yourself, boy
You’ll be alright, boy
All you have to do is try
So, I believed in me

I heard a voice
It gave me a choice
Refuse to die

Words that he said
I hear them my head
All I have to do is try
So, I believe in me
