Based on the bedtime prayer, "As I lay me down to sleep".

As I lay me down to sleep
Into my room dark forces creep,
Out through the window My life-force seeps
As I lay me down to sleep.

As I breathe my final breath
And in my fate see only death,
Unto the Grim Reaper I must say, "Yes."
As I breathe my final breath.

As I see my last chance go
And face another mortal blow,
Out of my bedroom my life doth flow
As I see my last chance go.

As I face my final day
And find my life has passed away,
Until My Lord there is naught to say
As I face my final day.

As my time has come at last
Soon they'll plant me under grass,
Now it's time to pay for my evil past
As my time has come at last.

THE END
