【歌詞翻譯】Iron Maiden – Hallowed be thy name

I’m waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime
當喪鐘響起,我正在自己冰冷的牢房裡等著
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn’t have much time
我開始回憶過往,但剩下的時間不多了
‘Cause at 5 o’clock they take me to the Gallows Pole
因為五點一到,他們就要帶我上絞刑台
The sands of time for me are running low
我生命的沙漏已越來越低
Running low
越流越低了

When the priest comes to read me the last rites
當牧師前來為我做最後一次禱告
I take a look through the bars at the last sights
我向鐵窗外看了最後一眼
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me
看向這個對我錯得一塌糊塗的世界
Can it be that there’s some sort of an error
會不會是哪裡搞錯了?
Hard to stop the surmounting terror
難以停下逐漸高漲的恐懼感
Is it really the end not some crazy dream?
這真的不是夢,而是要結束了嗎?

Somebody please tell me that I’m dreaming
拜託來個人跟我說是在作夢
It’s not easy to stop from screaming
因為實在很難停下尖叫的衝動
But words escape me when I try to speak
只要我一張嘴,話語就奪口而出

Tears they flow but why am I crying?
我的淚水不斷流著,但我為什麼要哭泣
After all I am not afraid of dying
我想我應該是不怕死的
Don’t I believe that there never is an end?
難道我不相信萬物輪迴永無止盡嗎?

As the guards march me out to the courtyard
當警衛帶著我走向天井
Someone calls from a cell “God be with you”
某個牢房裡的人對我說了聲「上帝與你同在」
If there’s a God then why has he let me go?
如果真的有上帝,那他為什麼要讓我死?

As I walk all my life drifts before me
當我的每一步都將過往的生命拋諸腦後
And though the end is near I’m not sorry
雖然生命的盡頭將近但我並不為這一切感到抱歉
Catch my soul ’cause it’s willing to fly away
請接住我的靈魂,因為它就要飛走了

Mark my words believe my soul lives on
記下我說的話,相信我的靈魂永存
Don’t worry now that I have gone
別再擔心了,我即將遠去
I’ve gone beyond to seek the truth
我即將遠去尋找世界的真實

When you know that your time is close at hand
當你知道你的生命盡頭就近在眼前
Maybe then you’ll begin to understand
或許你會開始理解
Life down there is just a strange illusion
生命僅僅只是一個奇怪的幻覺

Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Hallowed be Thy name
神聖即汝名
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Hallowed be Thy name
神聖即汝名
