about

Cover of David Bowie's "Dead Man Walking" from 1997's Earthling LP.

lyrics

He swivels his head
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 cracks in the past

Like a Dead Man Walking
Like a Dead Man Walking (Uh Huh)
A Dead Man
A Dead Man
A Dead Man
(bridge)

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)
A Dead Man
A Dead Man
A Dead Man

Like a Dead Man Walking (Uh Huh)
