I have no explanation
I cannot be of help
But you see my situation
I don't recognize myself
It happened without reason
It happened just like that
I've no more information
Beyond the simple fact

There was never any warning
There was never any sign
It's just that I woke up this morning
And eternity was mine

Search my family history
Analyze my dreams
Expose my contradictions
Reduce me to the mean
What you find might be revealing
It might very well be true
But you don't know what you're dealing with
You haven't got a clue

There was never any warning
There was never any sign
It's just that I woke up this morning
And eternity was mine

God knows I don't deserve this
After all the pain I've caused
But do me one last service
Before I take that walk
Before my soul flies from this chamber
And heaven beckons me across
Read me what the Saviour said
To that thief upon the Cross

There was never any warning
There was never any sign
It's just that I woke up this morning
And eternity was mine
