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
The tide takes you away and smashes you on the rocks
The sun is shining but feel not today
It's 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
Labeled to terminate our noisome Lucifer

The priest that reads the sermons is walking next to me
To the stake, my last request to have her burn with me
And so it did, the heavens opened, rain began to fall
The final judgment came, and was spread before you all

Final judgment

Old, weak, and feeble and the lessons taught to me
To stay away from evil, she doesn't care for me
She haunts me in my sleep though I tore that page away
And 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
