Dead Man Walking – David Bowie

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 gone gone
[Gone gone gone spinnin’ slack through reality]
Now I’m older than movies
[Dance my way, falling up through the years]
Let me dance away
[Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly]
Now I’m wiser than dreams
[Losing breath underwater well I’m gone gone gone]
Let me fly fly fly
[Spin slack through reality]
While I’m touching tomorrow
[Dance my way, falling up through the years]
And I know who’s there
[Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly]
[Losing breath underwater when I’m gone gone gone]
When silhouettes fall
[Spinnin’ slack through reality]

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

Three old men dancing under her lamplights
Shaking their sex in the bones
And the boys that we were
An alien nation in therapy
Sliding naked, anew
Like a bad tempered child
On the rain slicked streets

Then I’m gone gone gone
[Gone gone gone spinnin’ slack through reality]
Now I’m older than movies
[Dance my way falling up through the years]
Oh let me dance away
[Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly]
Now I’m wiser than dreams
[Losing breath underwater well I’m gone gone gone]
Let me fly fly fly
[Spin slack through reality]
While I’m touching tomorrow
[Dance my way falling up through the years]
And I know who’s there
[Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly]
[Losing breath underwater when I’m gone gone gone]
When silhouettes fall
[Spin slack through reality]

And I’m gone
[Gone gone gone spin slack through reality]
[Dance my way falling up through the years]
[Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly]
[Losing breath underwater when I’m gone gone gone]
[Spin slack through reality]
[Dance my way falling up through the years]
[Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly]
[Losing breath underwater when I’m gone gone gone]
[Spinnin’ slack through reality]

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
Like a dead man
Like a dead man walking

And I’m gone gone gone
[Gone gone gone spinnin’ slack through reality]
[Dance my way falling up through the years]
Let me dance, dance, dance
[Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly]
[Losing breath underwater well I’m gone gone gone]
And I’m gone, gone, gone
[Spin slack through reality]
[Dance my way falling up through the years]
[Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly]
Let me dance, dance, dance
[Losing breath underwater when I’m gone gone gone]
[Spinnin’ slack through reality]

And I’m gone, like I’m dancing on angels
And I’m gone, through the crack in the past
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
Like a dead man
