Candlemass - At The Gallows End Lyrics




Sunrise I greet you, the beauty of your light
so warm and tender was never the night
In tears I see you, the last time it will be
so give me your blessing, I'll meet my destiny
No rest for the Sinner
Hypnos refused me my sleep
This was the last night of my life
with wine I pondered on my deeds
I drank to the devil with servants
It's good with a friend where you go
No one would share my last chalice
So I drink to the ones that I know

Ring brother, ring for me
Ring the bells of hope and faith
Ring for my damnation
I am at the gallows end

With sad emotions, I sing this epitaph
my swansong, my headstone, the farewell of my heart
The hills of Tyburn, up where the gallows stand
only the vultures will come to see me hang

Behold the sight of my Golgatha
the gallows enlightened by the moon
proud of his art are the carpenter
his creation a tool for my doom

I am the outcast no winner
I am the fallen the one
that lived all his life as a sinner
The Tempter has called me his son

Soon it is time the dark has now fled
and I see the place for my death
the priest he will pray for my lost soul
I'm sure he's wasting his time

A sinner, a fool or a devil
or just a victim of life
It's no fun to burn in hell's fire
but I sure have enjoyed my life

Ring brother, ring for me
Ring the bells of hope and faith
Ring for my damnation
I am at the gallows end

  6. Social Credit Score: Critical

    My friend showed me these guys in middle school like 12 years ago and they never left my listening rotation. Nightfall is a fucking monster album.

  7. Michael Williams

    Holy fuck.

  8. Twee Pixie

    My neighbour just passed away,at the age of 54,but she looked so much younger.She had autism and schizophrenia,they gave her so much medication she died.If you don´t trust your psychiatrist,go to a new one.If you think he´s giving you too many medications,don´t be afraid to look for a new one.All I wish,for my neighbour, is JUSTICE!

  9. Terry Jones

    Helt utan skrik? Va? Slöseri med ett tungt gitarriff.

  10. Karl-Johan Lagström

    Sounds like Sign of the Wolf by Pentagram

  11. t3l3 fr4gg3d

    driving on a german Autobahn with this song...230 km/h ...this makes you calm

  12. J. Hinson

    This reminds me of Timo Tolkki on the earlier Stratovarius albums, badass

  13. Killer_Indigo

    Chandler aka Goniloc brought me here.

  14. Andreo Suro

    хах, это картина томаса коула :)) у меня таких 4 шт реплики галимые :)) детство-юностью-средние годы и вот эта в котельной висит - старость :))

  25. Atene Balint

    Non amo questo tipo di voci, ma questa song è davvero epica!
    Per chi volesse ascoltare la versione in growl, c'è la cover dei Transmetal 👍

  26. BroncosBailey ‘99

    This is literally my first time listening to Candlemass. Holy Sh*t! It’s like Slayer but with angels!

    David Adams

    Cool, man! I loved them in the 80s, but then I sought out different styles and artists and forgot about Candlemass—until now. I had forgotten just how great they were.

  27. TheSunMoon

    I've nvr listened to their songs before, until a friend introduced it to me. Damn, how much did I miss!

    BroncosBailey ‘99

    TheSunMoon same man!!

  28. Lucas Åhlberg

  33. Ivelina Pancheva

    God level singing.
    Messiah Marcolin is so underrated. He had more control, beauty and expressiveness than tons of highly praised 80's/90's rock singers.

    Chris MacFarlane

    Agreed! So underrated and under recognized.

    Smokeanaut

    Would you believe there are people who hate his voice, and think this is the worst version of Candlemass?

    LegionPsicotica

    God tier, good call

    Sejuani SupportONLY

    ​@Smokeanaut > Would you believe there are people who hate his voice

    No, I wouldn't believe that ... I'd sooner believe the Earth is flat and that Angela Merkel is a better comedian than George Carlin ... :p

    dennis prod

    @Sejuani SupportONLY its not only him,great vocalist such mat barlow of iced earth,eric adams of manowar were too mostly underrated!

  34. Urban Grandier

    True depressive black metal

    Not even close lol

  40. Farhan Yar Khan

    When I first heard this track I didn't like it, I thought it was too much heavier for my taste then my friend Richard asked me to give them another try, I did and still no liking. He asked me to listen to them again.. And now Candlemass is one of my all time favorite bands <3 thanks to my friend Richie I was introduced to this band; God bless him and may he live long. Amen
