Peace Sells but whos buying

Devil's Island is the fourth track off of Megadeth's second album Peace Sells... but who's Buying?.

LyricsEdit

 The light that fills my lonely cell is blocked out by the key
 That locks the door to this hell, the place they wanted me
 Time's racing like the wind, execution's near
 Oh, Lord, I wait for death, and yes, I have no fear
 I recall that night, my every breath and step along the way
 Closed my eyes, walking as danger paved the way
 The Devil and the darkness, let her evil wander free
 Here on Devil's Island, the final stop for me
 
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island
 
 Oh, there is no escape, the sea is full of sharks
 Tide takes you away and smashes you on the rocks
 The sun is shining, but feel not today
 Its warmth, it's dying and fading away
 
 Devil's Island, here I stay
 Devil's Island
 
 Oh, hear the call from the grave beyond
 Oh, so pernicious, her soul it creates song
 As there is no man that is here upon the Earth
 Able to terminate our noisome will since birth
 The priest that reads the sermon is walking next to me
 To the stake, my last request, to have her burn with me
 But, so it did, the heavens opened, rain began to fall
 The final judgement came and was spread before you all
 
 Final judgement
 
 Old, weak, and feeble, and the lesson taught to me
 Stay away from evil, she doesn't care for me
 She haunts me in my sleep, though I tore that page away
 Here on Devil's Island, I'll always have to stay
 
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island, here I am
 
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island
 Devil's Island
