Judas Priest – Beyond the Realms of Death


These guys are considered Metal Gods for a reason…

Artist: Judas Priest
Album: Stained Class
Year: 1978

Lyrics:
He had enough
He couldn’t take anymore
He’d found a place
In his mind and slammed the door
No matter how they tried
They couldn’t understand
They washed and dressed him
Fed him by hand
Yeah, I’ve left the world behind
I am safe here in my mind
I’m free to speak with my own kind
This is my life, this is my life
I’ll decide not you
Withdrawn, he’d sit there
Stare blank in space
No sign of life
Would flicker on his face
Until one day he smiled
It seemed as though with pride
The wind kissed him
Goodbye and then he died
Yeah, I’ve left the world behind
I’m safe here in my mind
Free to speak with my own kind
This is my life, this is my life
I’ll decide not you
Keep the world with all its sin
It’s not fit for livin’ in
Yeah, I will start again
It can take forever and ever and ever
And ever, but I’ll still win
How many like him
Are there still?
Who to us all
Seem to have lost the will
They lie in thousands
Lank and lost
Is nothing worth
This bitter cost?
Yeah, I’ve left the world behind
I am safe here in my mind
Free to speak with my own kind
This is my life, this is my life
I’ll decide not you
Keep the world with all its sin
It’s not fit for livin’ in
Beyond the realms of death
