To Hell With a Cross Around the Neck (Risti kaulassa helvettiin)

English translation

To Hell With a Cross Around the Neck

There's a smell of gunpowder in the air
I walk blindly among the smoke
My head feels heavy, I lick my wounds
Not until the smoke disappears that I realize
The sight sinks into mind
For all eternity
 
I won't forget their faces,
Not their screams of eternity
That's why I demand one promise
Promise me that I won't go to Heaven
But there where I deserve to go
 
A reflection on the surface of a spring
From there a cadaverous face
Of a killer watches without arrogance
I try to fade the stains of sin
Memories only get stronger
Every night worse and worse
They will be tattooed deep
For all eternity
 
I won't ever forget their faces,
Never their screams of eternity
That's why I demand one promise
Promise me that I won't go to Heaven
But there where I deserve to go
 
Some day my time will come
Then, after a long time,
I'll open this old case,
My heavy guilt
Of red velvet
From there I put a cross around my neck
But that doesn't mean
I yearn for forgiveness
 
I won't forget their faces,
Not their screams of eternity
Even if I walk with a cross around my neck
Promise me that I won't go to Heaven
But there where I deserve to go
 
When my journey begins,
What I so hope
Now my journey begins
To Hell with a cross around the neck
