Dead Man Walking
He swivels his head and tears his eyes from the screen
As his past puts him back in Atlantic City
There's not even a demon in heaven or hell
Is it all just human disguise as I walk down the aisle?

And I'm gone
Now I'm older than movies
And I know who's there
When silhouettes fall
And I'm gone like I'm dancing on angels
And I'm gone through the cracks in the past
Like a dead man walking
Like a dead man walking, uh-huh

Three old men dancing under the lamplight
Shaking their sex and bones and the boys that we were
An alien nation in therapy, sliding naked and new
Like a bad-tempered child on the rain-slicked streets

And I'm gone
Now I'm older than movies
And I know who's there
When silhouettes fall
And I'm gone like I'm dancing on angels
And I'm gone through the crack in the past
Like a dead man walking
Like a dead man walking, uh-huh
Dead man
Dead man
Dead man

And I'm gone
Now I'm older than movies
And I know who's there
When silhouettes fall
And I'm gone like I'm dancing on angels
And I'm gone through the crack in the past
Like a dead man walking
Dead man walking, uh-huh
Dead man
