Why do men kill against their will? What evil do we personify?

The time of death is now The blade of life takes it bow With thee I behead Blood running red No one questions why and how Looking at the guillotine One mans nightmare the other mans dream Cousin to the knife It takes away your life Fast and sharp its cut is clean Waiting in dungeon halls Silent screams penetrate walls No time to waste For breath’s last taste As men shiver before the blade falls Laying corpses mounting high Executed not knowing why Men will kill Against their will The bell has rung it is time to die.
