Dead Man Walking

Album: Take It Like A Man (2015)
  • Sorry to disappoint you
    But you can't even grasp what I've been through
    In the end, you've engraved this in my head
    You taught me to be dead
    Do you even know what you said
    Remember when I closed my eyes and took my last breath
    By the grasp of your hand clinched right around my neck
    So you made me this will, you created this mistake
    You tried to put me away with every blow I would take
    But I grew up now and I'm sorry to say
    I'm exactly like you
    A fucking mistake

    Sorry to humiliate you
    But they have never felt dead like I do
    Tore out my insides, left me to die
    I crawled like a dog to save my own life
    Sorry to disappoint you
    But you can't even grasp what I've been through
    They are me alive they ate me alive
    I curled up and died because they ate me alive

    Where were you when I learned to take it like a man
    Where were you when I learned to stand
    Where were you when I learned to take it like a man

    Dead man walking
    Chipping at my soul and taking it in slow
    He's dead man walking
    Circles in my head I swear
    Now I can say that I know what it's like to play dead
    And I still see your twitching ghost
    When I'm looking in the mirror
    Do you see mine
    We are one in the same, I swear
    Now I can say that I know what it's like to play
    Dead man walking

    Sorry to repulse you
    But you have never fought like I do
    Forgot how to cry, learned how lie
    I put you away to the back of my mind
    Sorry to disgust you
    But you can't even taste what I've been through
    They are me alive they ate me alive
    I curled up and died cause they ate me alive Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
