Lyrics To Eyes Of Death

They sent me to this prison
For a crime I did outside
I killed a man and didn’t hang
But I might as well have died

For every minute that I live
I know that death may call
You see his brother’s here with me
Right inside these walls

And I don’t even know his face
But I’m sure that he knows mine

The eyes of death are watchin’ me
Just bidin’ his time
(Oh Lord, he takes his time)

Each night they slam my lonely cell
And turn the lights down low
And I can’t close my eyes to sleep
Because somewhere I know

He’s planning how he’ll drive the knife
Into my poundin’ heart
And Lord this just not knowing
When will tear a man apart

He’s just a number not a name
And you’ll get me from behind

The eyes of death are watchin’ me
Just bidin’ his time
(Oh Lord, he takes his time)

Sometimes I think I’ll try to walk
And face the deadly guns
I’d either die or I’d be free
To leave this place and run

This man he swore to make me pay
But he’d rather see me cry
So he’ll just play around with me
While I wait to die

No prison ever held the man
With a sentence just like mine

The eyes of death are watchin’ me
Just bidin’ his time
(Oh Lord, he takes his time)

He’s bidin’ his time
(Oh Lord, he takes his time)
He’s just bidin’ his time
