This was one of those extremely rare tunes that I liked immediatley the first time I heard it, and I, too, wondered about the lyrics until I listened to the song about a hundred times in the end credits of the movie, "The Life of David Gale."
The only thing I see wrong with the above transcription is this: "...a prick of the skin, wipes away sin..." referring, of course, to the "lethal injection." And there's: "...deep IS the final breath; long IS a man's death..." At least that's my interpretation.
It's curiuos, too, that this is the only spot on the NET I could find any mention of the tune. Or are there others I haven't found, yet?
